Hawkman Sketch By Dale Eaglesham
Our sketch today is in honor of the end of the Geoff Johns/Dale Eaglesham turn on Justice Society of America. As such, we have this lovely headshot of the Winged Wonder by Mr. Eaglesham himself. Unfortunately I don't have a bigger image to use.
Still, even in this smaller size we can see a lot to like. I really like the feathering on the top of the helmet and on the Honor Wings. They really sell the texture of the helmet, while also helping give it a sort of Greek or Roman battle helm feel. The bulging traps we catch a glimpse of gives an idea of his physical strength. And the steeled eyes peering out of the helmet is enough to make most crooks feel a little scared. Eaglesham always portrayed Hawkman in a very powerful, impactful manner in the pages of JSoA, and this excellent sketch continues that trend.
