DRAW YOUR OWN VERSION OF A HELLBOY IMAGE

ART BRIEF
Draw your own take on any of the Hellboy images attached below.

Good luck!

The Rules:
THE ART CLASH is a weekly art challenge. Each TUESDAY a new Art Clash challenge will be posted. You may work in ANY MEDIA you like, but you must stick to the brief of this week’s Art Clash. And please, no posting old work in the Art Clash. This is about encouraging growth through work, so we expect a new piece every time.

Your final art will need to be uploaded to an image hosting service (here are a few I recommend: Imgur, Google Photos and Flickr) and then may be posted here ANY time until SUNDAY evening at MIDNIGHT (EST). Voting begins immediately afterward and polls close on MONDAY at MIDNIGHT (EST). So don’t miss out!
The artist with the most votes for the week by the close of the polls is declared that week’s winner and chooses the next Art Clash.

***A BRIEF NOTE BEFORE WE BEGIN***
Just a reminder that we’re currently in The Art Clash version 1.1. The primary difference in this iteration is each week’s Art Clash will feature two tiers of competition: sequential and pin-up. Anyone entering can choose to illustrate that week’s challenge in a sequential storytelling form (page templates will be provided here) or as a stand-alone, pin-up-style image. Build and illustrate a story of your own around an Art Clash challenge, or wow your audience with a single powerful image. It’s up to you. We want to foster all levels of creativity here, so this will provide an opportunity for all artists to take their work in whatever direction he or she desires and to whatever degree of finishing.

Awesome! I’d been wanting to do Hellboy. How about Hellboy in your style…or maybe in Mignola’s style, just to give it an extra challenge. If anyone has something else they’d like to add to help me with ideas, I’ll set it up when I get home.

It looks like Newbold for the win. Great job, man! We all agreed, your highlights looked amazing. I think Steel described it PERFECTLY–Like the sun coming out through the rain. just beautiful. Great work, man!

And great work everyone else! Steel, those colors and that angle just worked perfectly. Knight–you
really accomplishe something with this one. Keep it up!
Newbold, what would you like to do next?

I agree, Knight! Great job! That’s the Jason Todd Batman…not sure what storyline it’s from.
Great work!

Aaaaand it looks like the Barkley boys have tied. Ha Ha.

Great work, guys!

Any suggestions for what’s next?

I’m thinking something for Batman’s 80th birthday (though we’re a little late)…or something else timely, like maybe Hellboy. I’m definitely up for suggestions, though.
