Hawkman Sketch by Ethan Van Sciver
Our sketch this week is from mega-artist and MST3K fan Ethan Van Sciver. Best known for his amazing work on Green Lantern, EVS is a man of many talents, including writing his hilarious and sometimes downright bizarre occasional column on Newsarama entitled "Your Time Is Now Mine."
Despite only being a headshot, I really like this sketch. Van Sciver has a very fluid style which does not look labored over, but still retains a great level of detail, and this piece is a good example of that. I like that the helmet is not overstated like it so often is nowadays. Not that I mind, but a change of pace is always nice. I'd love to see a full body shot of the Winged Wonder!
