BLACKSAD by Wieringo BLACKSAD by Wieringo
This is a sketch of the title character from the brilliant European comic BLACKSAD-- populated by anthropomorphic characters in a film noir setting. Juanjo Guarnido is an artist that leaves me breathless with everything he draws... he's simply brilliant.

Oh my god! Black-Sad! For some reason I didn't expect him on devart ^^ Of course that's silly, just because most people write English here, doesn't mean they don't read European comics.

I agree, the artist is absolutely brilliant!

Ringo and Blacksad, what a magical combination. I wish I had seen this a few years ago. Still brilliant stuff.

I agree, Blacksad is an awesome, awesome piece of work. Easily can hang with the Watchmen. Whom ever draws those great works of aart should win an Esiner!

"Juanjo Guarnido is an artist that leaves me breathless with everything he draws..."

I know the feeling... :omg:

This is very awesome - if I had more time I'd love to put some colours on it... :(

I haven't managed to get any of the "Blacksad" books yet, but I love the idea behind it, and the design is fantastic.

You do an amazing job with it. Great work!

Impressive stuff as rendered by your good self, he actually looks even more hard-bitten and no-nonsense than usual. I think it's a comination of the stronger brow, somewhat smaller eyes and slightly wider jaw, and it really suits the character.

It's cool that you know european comics!!! And he's one of the best!!! I like your Blacksad!!!

You have good taste.

Juanjo Guarnido's work is fantabulous. Each of his pages, each panels is a joy to behold. And to think I missed him last year when he was in Quebec city two hours away *kick self*
This is a very nice rendition of Blacksad.
Bryce-Lee Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
One of my all time favorites, great rendition of him.
iizzoe Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007
Yea, Guarnido's lines are enough to have me staring all day long.
looks like a call to Stuart Ng books is what the doc ordered this income tax time, hehehehehe.

I get a sick combination of envy and joy when i look at that Guarnido guy's artwork...he's too good...
This is a nice tribute. Will we see it inked?
PatBoutin Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007  Professional
You've got an excellent taste....Blacksad is a hell of a good artist!

SpiderGuile Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Wherever Guarnido may be, he's surely proud!!! You did a very personal Blacksad, true to the original!! Beautiful interpretation, indeed!!
dekarogue Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007  Professional Artist
I'm really impressed when I see american artists knowing french/european comics, because there aren't too many famous creators.
but Guarnido really deserves to be wordly famous ! he's so great. and you totally got the essence of the character. drawing anthropomorphic charcters is so hard, but you did it just good.
Hyptosis Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
This is one of my fav comics, love seeing your version of him! =]
fan4battle Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007
Blacksad is going to be published here, wheee! :D

Wish the storyline of this comic was as awesome as your work :p
ArtistNeedham Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007
Cool, I always wondered what that comic was about. Nice drawing.
BrattyBen Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007
God, I love Blacksaad. I've got the three books that were released in the U.S. I've heard they have another one coming out. Nice job on the cat, man!
Blaquesmith Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist

I wouldn't have guessed that you'd know Blacksad! In fact, i agree with you... Juanjo Guarnido does a beautiful work in each Blacksad Comic book, and the stories being told are really good... Let me tell you that you have good taste in choosing comics, not only in drawing them :P

I think you did a good work with the sketch, it has the right attitude and looks.

Technical Question: I've observed that you do the sketch in blue pencil, then finish the drawing with a lead pencil. What kind of lead is it? HB? 2H? Softer lead?...

I'm just curious about that :)
Averno7 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007
really nice to see your version from this character, very nice lines. The face looks more like one from a panther or something more wild than a cat, more ike those tigers u have been sumnit.
Nice to see you in Deviant art :P
