King of the Hill

Another recent commission to share with you all. Like the Grifter/Deathblow commission, this too took a long time to come up with composition. I probably went through over a dozen different sketches before landing on this one. After all that, I was really happy with how it turned out.
Oddly, my favorite part of the whole drawing is the metal bands on the casks of Prohibition hooch. Makes the whole drawing.

I do have to say, those are some sweet sweet barrels.

Yeah, and the rest is pretty damn cool, too. Nice job, Brian.

another fantastic piece of art, brian! you really have a great tendency of capturing a "moment" in your art. all of these commissions seem like a splash page from a published book.

I've just discovered Damned via the Spanish Edition, and I must say it's really great. The noir atmosphere that every panel exhibit is awesome.
thanks for your great work.

Please excuse my poor English.
