Hellboy: Animated

Postby Nathan » Fri Sep 24, 2004 8:13 pm

A chum on another board (Danimation2D, I don't actually know his real name :oops:) drew these cool animated-style sketches of the Hellboy crew and I thought it would be a chuckle to ink and color them. They were fun. I like the style I settled on with Liz the best, but I don't think I'll go back and change the earlier ones to make the styles mesh better. It was just for fun and practice, after all. Lemme know what you think, please!

Sketch sample:

And colored!

Yeah, I like liz the best, but they're all cool.
I know you didn't draw these, but isn't Hellboy supposed to have a little arrow-type thingie on the end of his tail?

Nope. Maybe you're thinking of Nightcrawler. But in the comics, he definitely does have cloven hooves for feet. Dan decided, and I agree with him, that if HB were to be done as an animated series, he would have to be at least as kid-friendly (and non-gross) as in the movie, where he has normal feet. Thanks for the comments, though! :cheers:

These are the sexy! And actually, I prefer the Kroenen and Abe to the rest of them. I prefer how little they are rendered. On the HB piece, the places where there are 3 steps between light and dark look better than where there are 4 (his shoulders) or more.

And the Liz one is nice but looks more like a finished illustration rather than an animated character... not that there's anything wrong with that, just not as slick and cool as Abe and Kroenen.

Really fun!

Hey, Chad. Thanks for the comments. I agree with you 100 %. I went back and simplified HB to fit better with the rest.

Liz Does look more like a finished illo, but I like her that way. Here are two others that I did and never posted, as well as a composite.
