An initial layout for a commission which i decided to color. I never used this study though as I felt it wasn’t fit for THE Alan Scott. So I decided on a slightly more dramatic pose, deserving a golden age superhero, which i could liken to those 50′s acting. You may have observed it too; flamboyant gestures, dramatic hands, etc— theatrical stances. Shakespearian if you will. Something I rarely employ… actually i can’t remember if I’ve used it before. What I generally aim for when drawing is power stances and subtle acting, that are more often influenced by todays movies and anime or manga.
I hope I’m making sense here.
Well, anyway here’s the final pencil commission
