KETCHUP! by Mr. Hawthorne

Edit - I inked Ramon's THING sketch as my entry for that subject. Hope he doesn't mind.

That Hawkman is INTENSE, Mike. Great Belit as well.

Mike Hawthorne said...

Thanks, Evan. You're John Carter piece is pretty awe inspiring. Love it.


Ron Salas said...

Fantastic! That Hawkman looks badass as hell.
I really love that Belit, though. That was the POV I was trying to go for with mine but you pulled it off much more successfully than I did.

Josh said...

Wow, Hawkman is pissed. I love the lighting. Nice spotting of blacks under his arms and around his pecs. My favorite part of the whole drawing is the shadow below his elbow.

John Matthew Stater said...

Love that Belit. So well done.

Two Awesome!

Mike Hawthorne said...

Thanks everyone! Really appreciate it! :)


PS - Ron, I went back and looked at your're crazy! Mine looks hacked in comparison.

Dan McDaid said...


Just beautiful stuff, Mr H!

Francesco Francavilla said...

As I said on T, these are both KICKASS!!! Love the power of the Hawkman and the regal upshot of Belit. You did it again, my friend :)


Mike Hawthorne said...

Wow, you guys are way too kind! I'm kinda shocked, actually. Not that I think this stuff is crap, but I didn't think people would be that into them.

Anyway, thanks! :)

Hawkman looks ready for blood or some bloody payback. Check out those teeth, man.

Belit? What can I say? She's breathtakingly beautiful and dangerous looking at the same time. I'm in love.

these are great! i really like the hawkman (see below) but your belit is amazing. it looks like the very best of european comics.

Mike Hawthorne said...

Thank you very much, guys! Really, it's very kind of you.

Tom, you're Hawkman is tremendous. I love that you're allowing us to see the scans with the grey values intact, instead of just a straight black/white scan. Looks so lush, and awesome.

Mike Hawthorne said...
