Hawkman Sketch By Chris Samnee


Our Hawkman sketch today is by Chris Samnee, who has done work for Marvel, DC, and Oni. His most well known work currently is probably his work on Siege: Embedded over at the House of Ideas.

I really dig how ticked off Hawkman looks here. The straightforward musculature and trim look overall gives me the feeling of Murphy Anderson, but with a little more looseness than his work typically had. The mace looks great, as do the wings. Really captures the rage of the character very nicely.

You can check out more of Samnee's work here.

That's a nice sketch.

Darwyn Cooke, as best as I can tell, hates Hawkman and the Atom. Despite his love for the Silver Age, I found only two Hawkman drawings at CAF. Cooke has drawn Princess Leia more often.

Meanwhile, no Atom at all. :(

Well, Ray Palmer was in "The New Frontier", just not in costume.

I don't know that Hawkman or the Atom would have fit in well with all the allegory in New Frontier. They're pretty straight-laced characters, especially in the Silver Age.
