HAWKMAN by Chris Samnee



My Hawkman sketches always show him in a pretty sour mood. I think, after years of growing up with a falconer for a father, my frustration with birds of prey may have bled over onto our guy Carter Hall here. Sorry buddy. I still think you're a great character... it's just the creatures that you get your namesake from that I have a problem with ;P

Oh, and here's a shot of my Pop, lookin' all badass with one of his bird pals :)

Always like the way you ink wings and feathers.

Lots of energy on your hawkman, Chris, and a HIGH COOL FACTOR on your dad :D
Once I had a hawk for a few months and was living a bit the "falconeer" dream, just a little :)

Cheers,
Francesco

Thanks a ton, everybody! I really appreciate it.

I think the sour mood definitely suits our guy. I mean, he goes around shirtless all the time. That harness has got to chafe. :)

Awesome drawing and your dad is a guy I wouldn't want to mess with.
