Dan Dare by Ron Salas



Here's my late Dare.
The other guys chose to highlight the spaceman aspect of the guy by putting him in his spacesuit but I felt his normal space force uniform with coat looked cooler and I found that military aspect of his character more interesting.

I would've finished this sooner but I wanted to get a jump on this week's topic.
Also, since I already know what next week's topic is going to be, I can get a jump on that as well!

Such a great use of stark blacks, this could almost be a Samnee - which is a compliment

Dan McDaid said...

Bloody brilliant!

Ron Salas said...

Thanks guys!

Alan - You've gotta be kidding. This is almost a Samnee if all he was doing was a 30 min sketch.

Bit of a David Lloyd vibe to that - great!

Ron Salas said...

Thanks. I'm a big David Lloyd fan so that's definitely a good thing. :)
