The Comedian by Until-The-Dark The Comedian by Until-The-Dark
Life's a Laugh ~ Happy April Fools!
I decided when I was at school to do an April Fools-based drawing for deviantART. So I did! This is part two (since I did two drawings). For the second drawing I imediately thought The Comedian from Watchmen who was, apart from the Joker, one of the characters I thought of when I thought of doing this theme. Plus, The Comedian and The Joker are my two favouirte characters from their movies.

I did this all onto the computer, and it took roughly between 4:30pm/5:30pm to 9:20pm to finish it all. I'm really, really happy with the outcome, even happier with this than I am with the Joker drawing, which is excelent because when I was looking for a reference picture, I was like "This is going to be hard" and I didn't know that'd it'd turn out this good. I hope you all like it. :D

PLEASE ASK FOR MY PERMISSION BEFORE YOU USE IT OR DISTRIBUTE IT ANYWHERE. Also don't crop out my watermark. :]

Now these effects are amazing. Although the different styles in the face and gun (and arms) are a little off putng in my honest opinion. Actually it may just be te dark outlne around the nose that's doing it, whatever it still looks amazing. Excellent job, as always ;)

Oh! I just realised what you meant. Yeah, I did the whole drawing like a sketch (except on the computer) which was in grey, which I turned into black later on. But some of the lighting (like the side of his face, for example) I added after I finished it to add detail like the original picture. So yeah, some parts you can see the black outlines but it isn't a different style, all of the drawing is like that. :]

>.< Lol. Ah i see, well that makes a lot more sense. It does however give it a nice old fashioned looking theme type of thing. Yeah, i like it. The style does suit the Comedian, a lot. Anyway, you should draw some more stuff... Apparently what's his face is going to be the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland... What's his name? Oh you know, the dude... Edward Scissorhands... Jack Sparrow... You should draw the MAd Hatter (going through a crazy Disney phase)

Thanks. :D
You wouldn't be refering to Johnny Depp, would you? LOL. And yeah, I knew that. And Helena Bonham Carter is going to be the Queen of Hearts (like I expected xD). And yeah, I should! I'll see if I can think of anything.

That's the dood! Lol. Well yeah, that'd be awesome. Since you like Johnny Depp and stuff (Don't you?)
You're work is amazing by the way, must have taken some hard practice to do such great pieces on the computer.
