Base intaglio effect for the Hellboy illustration

Composite portrait of Mike Mignola’s creation – Hellboy. The harbinger of the apocalypse and defender of the forces of darkness. The image above is the base dark intaglio layer and one part of the workflow I use in my illustrations.

Detail of the composite portrait of Hellboy

Mike Mignola created a wonderful character and universe with this character, Hellboy. The fun he has with the visuals and narrative combine to create something truly unique to the world of storytelling.

As his work lept from page to screen, the great Ron Perlman was a great embodiment of the character. Although David Harbour’s portrayal was fun, but I am still partial to Ron’s work in the first films. 

These illustrations were created using Adobe Illustrator, Corel Painter, and Adobe Photoshop.
