The HULK







Way back in 2008 I had this strange compulsion to draw the Hulk over, and over, and over again. I don't think I ever achieved the Hulk that was smashing stuff inside my skull, all I ever had was a feeling, but I could never get it to feel right on the page. Someday, I'll try again.

I did get to try some different inking styles at least.

*sigh* 2008 feels like it was just yesterday...

P.S Blog, I HATE the colour Hulk. I was trying too much textury crap in photoshop and it looks totally overworked, but I don't feel like doing a better version. Live, learn, move on. If I fixed everything I thought sucked before I posted it, I would never post anything.

Bad ass! Those last two in paticular totally float my boat. Especially puny head hulk. I love pushed proportions.

I'm suprised you didn't try a big hands hulk...given your talent for drawing amazing phalanges.

RAGE! Great Hulks, mister. The inkyness in each is delightful. I prefer the middle, contemplative Hulk.

Your Hulk pages are amazing. Are you kidding? The colored version looks good.

Great designs-have to say I'm more fond of the black & white images than the coloured version too.
Your expressions are great & the array of poses are really solid.
