During my early twenties I was subscribed to Heavy Metal magazine for a few years. For those of you who don't know, it's an adults oriented comics magazine (alot of the comics involes violence and/or nudity). In every issue I didn't like at least half of the comics. Either the story was stupid or I didn't like the drawing style. But it was those few other great comics that made every issue worth it. At some point I sat down with a pencil and copied some of the characters of some of my favorite artists.
This is a sketch I did of a character from Frezzato's graphic novel The 2nd Moon. I really love Frezzato's art. It's the perfect mix between manga and european-style comics. Aside from his great artistic ability, Frezzato also shows an immense imagination. For this fantasy story, he created amazing landscapes, cities, mechanical flying machines and great characters.
