GATOR sketch

This is a sketch of one of the villains in a project created by the MADDtwins and I. He's an Atlanta kingpin named GATOR and he has an 8 foot pet alligator that he keeps in the back of his Chevy suburban. This is the flipside to the usual cartoony style that I regularly post here on the blog. I'm a little rusty with my more graphic style and hope to exercise it more for my mature projects. This is the initial idea that I roughed out first.

Once I got my concept down, I had a hard time figuring out his face. I looked at some old John Romita Jr. Kingpin art from the Daredevil books for insperation. He's one of my favorite comics artists. I tried a couple of variations and decided that they were a little cartoony.

Here's the final sketch. Maybe one of the twins will throw a little color on her. If so, I'll post the final result.

Here's a sneak peek of the two main characters. We collaborated on this poster some time ago. I thought I'd share it with you all as well.
