Fireman San Diego 2010 by TerryDodson Fireman San Diego 2010 by TerryDodson
Something a little different for today - I do get asked to draw male characters as well - and this was for a generic Fireman - which I had to wrap my mind around for a bit before I came up with an idea.

I ended up having to draw this in the hotel room because I needed reference - I had a feeling the person requesting the drawing probably knew a thing or two about firefighters so accuracy was important.

Drawn with Col Erase Light Blue Pencil, Staedtler HB Lead, Black Copic Mulitliners 05 and 08 Markers, Brown Pitt "S" Marker, Warm Grey Copics and White and Cream Prismacolor Pencils on 12" x 16" Canson Pastel Paper.

Beautiful work Terry, I'd love to see you working on a creator owned book, something a bit more realistic as opposed to the superhero genre. You totally deliver.

Yeah it was surprising but more because of the "generality" of it - that was the most difficult part - trying to figure out the character/story for the piece. But, yeah, it was fun to do.
