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.

enjoy.

Duuuuuude that is awesome. I do think it loses a little something in the colored version though. Maybe try throwing in some hints of green (some of those old photos actually appear more greenish yellow than the traditional orangey yellow.) my two cents,

Hey, Skottie -- That's a killer sketch, I love it. :)

I wanted to say, too, that I've been following all your podcast adventures, been constantly entertained by your insights into art and conventions and all that shit. It would've been cool to meet you at WW Chicago next week, but I can fully understand why you're not going.

Keep up the sex, man!

Like you, I had never read Preacher before, but my new work buddy Rudy recommended it. I love the quote, too!

Your style is right up the Preacher alley, too. It's the perfect spirit for SoK.
