The Protagonist


A few days early from Madness month (September) I drew up this version of Hank for a comic book series I've been planning for quite a while now with Krinkles. In this version, Hank obviously hasn't gone to ninja stealth mode. This is when Hank is just starting to kick ass.

Basically it's a fresh take on madness. I'm giving it a 'live action' point of view. What I'm intending to do with this idea is bring the Madness world to a cinematic perspective.

Ever since I first saw madness, I saw that it had this great collection of classic elements that I feel could work really well in a live action movie format if all those elements were put into a good story. By good, besides the obvious reasons, I mean an idea that won't stray too far from the source material, but also give it a new twist.

This story is my attempt of that... but I can't reveal too much of it... yet.

p.s. and yes there is an explanation for the cross on the face... but i can't tell you... yet.

Really intense

Wow this was really something "INTENSE" I like all the "BLOOD" he is almost like some mad Scientest, the details in this art piece are amazing the backround was just perfect, the blood and the character design very nice indeed, No changes here this was a beautiful piece of work here.

Wow, this is very, very strange. This doesn't look anything like Hank really. Then again, I guess he doesn't really have a defined appearance. I mean, these characters literally have no faces. I guess that's why a lot of people didn't like this that much. I could at least recognize the title.

The bloodstains are the best part. It seems like you could do this for any Madness character. Then again, in the beginning, Hank DID look like everyone else. There seems to be the indents on his face here. At least you made something different.

The original hank

Nice job man

It's amazing how the addition of eyes brings a madness character to "life". Not to mention the entire rest of the package you put together here.

This is a truly inspired rendition, and if artwork like this were to spawn an animated series via a traditionally animated cartoon, I'm telling you right now it would be one hell of a hit.

I'm highly excited for the comic book series. Keep it up!
