This week's pick:

Wednesday, February 17, 2010


This weeks character is Francesco Francavilla's
awesome pulp style hero Black Beetle.
My version is from Black Beetle the animated series.
I'm sure this show is gonna happen as soon as hollywood
finds out about this super-cool character.
Cheers to you Francesco!

Ah that's class man! Love the exaggerated build and the shadow on the bilboard.

Craig Zablo said...

Love both versions. Bring on the comic and animated series NOW!

Francesco Francavilla said...

Andy, I know you know people, let's make this animated show happen, please :D
BB look badass! Love the style, the shot, and you even included the famous Colt City's Zeppellins :D
Nathan "electric" colors are a wonderful touch. Thank you both, guys :)


Nathan Fairbairn said...

This is great, Andy! It's one of those deceptively simple drawings that has everything it needs to succeed and no more. The colors are just the cherry on top. Hope you don't mind!

ANDY KUHN said...

big smooches to you nate for the color job,
looks awesome!

Declan Shalvey said...

I love the inks on this one, Andy. Damned slick, and a great take on Francesco's design.

And Nathan, fantastic colors man. Great, unique choices throughout.
