I giggle with anticipation whenever I imagine seeing this guy on the big screen in Hellboy II this summer.
BPRD is right up there with Invincible and 100 Bullets as one of my favorite comics coming out these days, and Johann Kraus is perhaps my favorite character from the book. It's a tough call since Mike Mignola and John Arcudi have created a cast of the most fleshed-out, individual, and interesting characters on the market right now, but I certainly loves me some Johann.
There are some other things that I should have been spending my artistic time on over the past two days (check the word balloon near my signature on the drawing), but when it hit me that I'd never drawn this guy before I felt an unstoppable force telling me that I had to do so. Here is the colored version. I'm no colorist, but thankfully Mignola's characters tend to suit simple coloring just fine, so I'm actually very pleased with how this looks.
Drawn in a sketchbook, inked with Millennium Pens and Prisma Markers, and colored in Photoshop.
