It’s none other than Space Ghost and a Galactic Empire Star Destroyer (from Star Wars.) Space Ghost is a fictional character created by Hanna-Barbera Productions and designed by Alex Toth for CBS in the 1960s. Space Ghost is credited with being responsible for the popularity of superhero cartoons in the 1960s.In his original incarnation, he was a superhero who, with his teen sidekicks Jan, Jace, and Blip the monkey, fought supervillains in outer space. In the 1990s, Space Ghost was brought back as a host for his own fictional late-night talk show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. In the 2000s, he was revamped as a serious superhero once again in a mini-series by DC Comics (from wikipedia.)

A very fun piece to work on for me. I used markers and some white gesso for dotting in some stars in the background. Final inked drawing measures 10″ x 15″, done on light weight blue line comic book art board.

He’s big and he’s bad, his name is Wohlstug. A new character sketch for my webcomic at www.starcomic.net. You’ll notice he wields some interesting looking weapons: a sword and shield forged of some type of energy matter. This also marks the first time I’ve introduced a color other than black or gray into the sketch. It’s a nice touch and adds some accent to the sketch.
