You might remember this muscle bound roughian from a month or two ago. Here’s Knox again, this time inked up and flaunting in full color.
In case you missed the memo - Knox came about after going a few rounds in the Mortal Kombat ring with my bro. He’s a worthy warrior to say the least…
And after I was fed up with getting my butt kicked from one end of the stage to the other, I put down the controller and picked up my stylus.
Drawing is my therapy. Helps me nurse the wounds from a thorough pummelling.
But it’s always the same. Whether it’s Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Soul Calibre, or Street Fighter – I can’t help but to become inspired. And once that happens, there’s no resisting the call of my mighty drawing board.
You know what I’m talking about. When you can’t sit still long enough to see the end of a movie or video game because that insatiable darn itch to create must be scratched?
As you can tell from the ponytail, Knox was inspired by 90’s Comics as well as 90's Video Games. I was raised on Cyber-Force, W.I.L.D. Cats and Young Blood, and as absurdly over the top as they were, they’ve stuck with me till this day.
There’s no real story behind Knox yet, but I will say that his weapon of choice is an almighty, blast of Microwave Energy; a nasty manoeuvre that allows him to boil the brains of his most fearsome foes.
If you want to know more about the inking and coloring technique I used to create Knox…
You’ll be pleased to know I’ve captured the entire process on video, from start to finish. The construction and refinement of the drawing, as well as the inking and coloring methods used to produce the final illustration.
I’m also putting together a tutorial that’ll walk you through it every step of the way.
And if you’re a supporter on Patreon you’ll get the entire video and tutorial series for Knox in just a few short weeks.
