View Full Version : Stylized Hellboy Sketch

11-14-2006, 08:32 AM
Here is a stylized sketch I did 2 years ago while working at Tippett Studio (http://www.tippett.com/) on Hellboy: The Movie (http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/hellboy/hellsite/). I posted it on my blog (http://www.ultraist.net/journal/2006/09/24/hellboy/#comments), and got a comment suggesting I post it here.


Let me know what you think.

Ha! Sweet. Welcome aboard.

What did you do at Tippett?

Ha! Sweet. Welcome aboard.

What did you do at Tippett?

Thanks Hellboyone.

I was an animator. Some of the more memorable shots I worked on were: Sammael jumping over the truck (in the alley), Sammael eating the security guard, the shot where Sammael crashes his head through the glass in the subway door, and the scene where the Rasputin Behemoth's tentacle grabs Hellboy and pulls him down the catacomb's tunnel (smashing his head on the lanterns as he goes)... among others.

At some point I'll post all that stuff on my site (I've been saying that for years - LOL) eventually...

Thanks for the kind words and warm greetings everyone.

Lilitu: I did the sketch as I was working... didn't think too much about it as I was doing it, other than that I had seen other artist do stylized Hellboy drawings and was curious what mine would look like if I were to doodle one. So I did. And was kind of pleased with the way it turned out. In retrospect, there are definitely Perlman/Movie attributes there (boots, trenchcoat, pants, cigar, etc), but I was probably subconsciously influenced the most by those Joe Acevedo Playmobil Hellboy figures, as well as my own comic character Spy Guy.

Gdeo: You convinced me... I think I will post some new doodles. Hopefully sooner than later.

Redoogie: That is one movie I'd consider relocating back to CA. to work on... :D
