Warm Up: I reckon you're gonna do some dyin'.
Being the pathetic comic fan that I am, I have never read Preacher. The end all/be all of comics as far as most people are concerned. So, I picked up the trades to see what all the fuss was about. I'm 3 books in and I'm enjoying it for the most part. (listen to Around Comics each week for more details on my thoughts about the book)
So, today I decided to draw a Preacher character. The Saint of Killers. Just a bad ass imortal Cowboy who can't be stopped, and will put a few hundred bullets in your ass with out breaking a sweat.
Here are both versions. The watercolor wash and the color version. In the color version, I tried to give it the old wester, wooden feel. Not a masterpiece, but fuck it, it's just a warm up.
[UPDATE] I put up the wrong color version at first. Now the correct one is up there.
