#6 Deadeye

| November 6, 2010 | 5 Comments

Do spies ever retire? Surely they all don’t get bumped off or disappear, etc. I always wondered that about James Bond when I was a kid. Eventually, he’s gonna be too old to chase international villains, drive fast cars and seduce every woman he meets, right? This is where my idea for Donovan Drake, AKA: Deadeye came from. It’s not a new, brilliant story but he’s my answer to the that adolescent question. I went a different direction with the art this time. He’s a very 60’s flavored type of character. Equal parts Bond, Nick Fury, Man from U.N.C.L.E. so I went for a 60’s styled rendering to match. I think it’s pretty successful!

    Really like this, reminds me of stories that were published in Action. A comic that was published in the UK in the 1970s. Before it was Banned (well kinda, it had its wings clipped so it’s stories couldn’t be too ott) 🙂

    Thanks for the compliments! I really dig it; I think he might be too Nick Fury looking so I may do some retooling on his looks.
