The Spirit - By Eryck Webb
Felt the challenge to do something dynamic and very graphic for the spirit. Maybe inspired by the frank miller visuals but i've never seen the movie, just stills/ commercials. And I wanted it to look like the original that won the awards in the first place. A large part of this composition and style was influenced by the compositions and striking portrayals of the Alex Ross exhibit I went to in pittsburgh yesterday. Its definitly left an impression and a different way of looking at iconic heroes and compositions. Who doesnt love fedoras, trench coats and ties to illustrate, make the hero mysterious and illustrate motion/ dynamic movement. K, thats my long winded description of inspiration on this :) Fun character, will have to draw more!
