Great composition and amazing bold inks, Andy :D Love the way you nailed that helmet with just few ink-strokes :)

Patriotic pulp at it's finest! This is really sharp, and I love the inks as well. Heading over to check out the roughs... now!

Very cool, Andy

Steve Bryant said...

That's so dynamic. I love it!

Mitch Gerads said...

I can actually see how he would sputter in motion Andy, awesome job!! I'm a huge fan of statically depicting dynamic movement.

Evan "Doc" Shaner said...

Fantastic inks, Andy. That's a great pose and the whole design is just really effective.

Ron Salas said...

Like everybody has said, I love the energy in your inks. I really like how the gun's muzzle flashes and the jetpack flares simulate fireworks to help punctuate this patriotic image.

Chris Samnee said...

Hells yeah!! This really has a zing to it!!
Great job, Andy!

The Chaykin comparison hit me as well. The image could have been taken from a team-up in American Flagg.

I'm also digging how you ditched grace in favor of the bombast and crackle of having a rocket on your back.
