So, I’ve decided this is Father Robot during his little-known high school football years. Here we have him executing some deft maneuver before catching the pass to score the winning touchdown, bringing the home team victory over the evil town just to the south…
Anyway, this is FR with a little variation in design. There different elements to him here than in the comic, and the colors are all changed. My favorite are the wings upside the head.
I worked the pencils for this at Emerald City Comicon, the inks at Wondercon, and then added the colors and value with my treasured Copic collection this week at home (and at work). At first, I was sure this drawing was a lost cause, as I didn’t really like where it was going in the sketch phase(s), but I like how it’s turned out. You never know what a piece can turn in to if you give it a little love.
