This was meant for the "Wings" topic on Illustration Friday about 2 weeks ago. I didn't post it because I got completely side-tracked with this character and was going to make a short comic strip about him. Forgetting that I've never done anything close to a comic strip, I dived right in with ideas of a short comic story which is currently four pages of scribbles with no end in sight. I felt that I had not only bitten off more than I could chew but I had bypassed that whole chewing lark and had attempted to unhinge my jaw and consume the whole thing like a snake. Needless to say I choked and lost all motivation for this drawing and the whole comic idea.
For a week or so I couldn't look at paper the same way, until about five days ago when I sat down to watch Question Time only to find
myself doodling away totally oblivious to the questions of Question
Time. The scribble I produced (right) made me go back and complete the
original picture and recreate the doodle as the below picture in a fraction of the time it took me to balls up my comic strip.
For the picture below I used a image from the Internet just to get my bearings on how to draw a more realistic punch to the face. It worked however I feel that this picture is now tainted.
