Hawkman vs The Falcon by MD Bright
Our sketch today is a commission piece by MD Bright, best know to me for illustrating Green Lantern through a good portion of the 90s. And like any good commission, it's a fight -- between the Winged Wonder and Marvel flying hero, "Snap" Wilson, AKA The Falcon! Considering I just got the Marvel Legends Falcon toy for Christmas, I thought this was appropriate.
Bright's always had a clean, crisp style which I thought made him really well-suited to the DC heroes and this image is no exception. The wings are strong and dynamic on both characters, and both look suitably ripped. The details of Hawkman's costume are nice, including well-proportioned Honor Wings and a clean wing harness. I can't imagine how nice this would look in color!
Although I am not happy with Falcon getting the drop on Hawkman, this piece still rocks!
