The Black Nothing by Andrew-Ross-MacLean The Black Nothing by Andrew-Ross-MacLean
A very over-due character design for my man Brandon. This is his character The Black Nothing an anti-hero from his book TOUGH (same book as MORPHINE MAN). Very cool story. Very cool dude.

Thanks so much dude. simple is tough as shit. It's something I never understood until I understood Mike Mignola's work, and for years I HATED his work. Thought it was lazy and then one day it just clicked. ever since I have SOOOO much respect for the masters of simple.

ha! i totally get what you mean with Mignola. and i think its easier to understand if you follow his work from like the early first volumes of hellboy, where it was stylized but still had a level of detail. as the books kept coming, he'd simplify. a new volume, a simpler hellboy, another new volume, and simpler backgrounds. its like he's on a path to represent a story properly with the absolute minimal of details.

His 80s stuff actually borderlines on realistic, which is crazy enough.

Yeah I've noticed that about him. There is an ALIENS story he did which can be found in one their omnibuses which is really cool to see cuz it looks like his first hellboy stuff but at that same time a little different and very very SciFi ofcourse which is the real treat. Never wanted to buy that whole book for just that one story but I love poking through it whenever I see it on a shelf.
