THE PUNISHER by Nathan Fairbairn

Hey, guys! Great entries, everyone! It's my week, so I couldn't NOT contribute, even if it's just a head shot. I've had a soft spot for the character of the Punisher ever since, as a kid, I picked up a black-and-white magazine-format collection of the Mike Zeck/Steve Grant 'Circle of Blood' mini-series. That shit blew my mind! And then, many years later, when Garth Ennis was given license to work with the character in Punisher Max, my mind was blown again by what can only be described as the definitive statement on the character.

I know a lot of comics fans may roll their eyes at the premise of the Punisher (especially when depicted in ivory evening gloves wrestling with Spider-man or whoever), but seriously, if you haven't checked out any of the original Punisher Max series, particularly Ennis's collaborations with the masterful Goran Parlov, you are missing out on some seriously great comics.

Thanks for looking!

This is fantastic, man! I love that grizzled face. The color is right on the money, but the drawing is a win!


Doc Shaner said...

Nice work, man! Love the eyes and the colors are fantastic. Great pick, Nathan!

Nathan Fairbairn said...

Thanks, doods! Colors this time were traditional watercolor on board, w/ a little Photoshop trickery to overlay the skull logo (also to fix various little watercolor fuck ups ;)

Great choice, Mister Fairbairn, and even greater execution. Amazing depiction.

Mike Hawthorne said...

No, shit? Watercolor! Man, looks so vivid! I love it :-)

Nathan Fairbairn said...

Ha! Well, Mike, it's *possible* that I tweaked the levels on this bad boy a bit in Photoshop to punch it up a bit. ;D
