The Punisher

Ive been waiting a long time to finally do something with the punisher. I love the Character, but I thought it would be cool to give him a little bit different look from what we are used to. For some reason I always thought it would be cool to have Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Punisher.
Arnie is the perfect person in my opinion to portray the Punisher, especially in his Terminator outfit. I always wanted to give Frank Castle the look of a big and strong dude, whos able to kill you with one kick but also make him look like hes been trough a lot of trouble by making his face full of scares (hes been to vietnam and fought every sort of criminals that should at least leave some scares, even on a Heros face).
I also Changed the skull on his shirt, I bet all the Punisher fans out there will kill me, but I liked it that way much more ;) giving him a "walther" p99 Ram and a crowbar to always remember you that if youve been naughty, Big Pun will find you and it aint going to be nice.

Before I started the drawing I did a very detailed sketch, which i will scan later on, and then put the sketch on the lightbox and traced the picture, thats the reason why the pencils look very clean and the lines are more controled.
The Inks were a little bit difficult to me because Im still very new to all the inking stuff, but Im trying to teach myself as much as possible. For the big black spots I used a brush and ink, for the line work i used pens, which I feel much more comfortable, then a brush.

So do you like my version of the Punisher?
All the Best,

This is really nice. I love the way those clean pencils look.

Regarding the inks: playing with the levels in photoshop wuould give a much crisper and cleaner look to them. As it is at least on my screen the spot blacks aren't solid black but are showing the different strokes of brush/pen.

hey Olli,
thanks for the nice words. I did the Pencils with my lightbox therefore they look much cleaner.
I followed your advice and darkened the punisher inks again to make it the blacks look more solid.
Thanks for commenting :)
