For Sean

I'll try to keep this short and sweet.

I've been trying to increase my art skills based upon a style that's my own.  It's difficult to come into such a style because most everything has been done.  I am across the blog of Sean Hartter.  You can find the link at the upper right corner of this page.  I found his artwork and I was in love with it immediately.  The stylish book covers, the Grindhouse posters and the genre he loves is the same as what I love.  He's inspired me to keep doing my artwork, regardless of how crappy it might be.  In the end, that's what he's given me.  Just keep posting.

I've met with Sean through Facebook and through happenstance, I've learned that he's gotten a terrible illness.  I won't say what it is; I'll leave that up to him and the privacy of his own family.  So with that, I wanted to do a picture for him in the style that I've become quite good at.  Below is the image based upon his business card "replica" of himself.

So in my corner of Superheroes, and super villains, I give you The Dark Druid

Free some the confines of Limbo, the Dark Druid has returned to Earth to seek revenge against the descendants of the towns folk that wiped out his clan several hundred years ago.  Breaking into the Templar Armory, he obtains Pistola Laser Del Diablo and the fabled CrossStar Saracen sword to fuel his weapons supply.  Reunited with his familiar, Righteous Steve, The Dark Druid is ready to revenge his clan and woe to anybody who stands in his way.

I wish you all the best, Sean.
