ART TOUR on The Source with Doug Mahnke

By DCE Editorial Friday, October 7th, 2011
As part of DC Comics-The New 52 Art Tour, GREEN LANTERN artist, Doug Mahnke will be appearing at Source Comics Wednesday, October 12 in Falcon Heights, MN. Doug is enjoying the challenge of drawing Hal Jordan as a civilian. Here, Doug explains what feelings and emotions he is trying to convey in Hal Jordan’s face and body language. Check out his pencils and the final colored image of panel 4 on page 4 from GREEN LANTERN issue #2 below, and pick up a copy next week. In panel 4 page 4 I did the best to give Hal a look of disbelief and longing to reflect how badly he wants the ring and disbelief that Sinestro could in any way give him the one thing he wants more than anything else: to be a GL again. I am always happy when I get an upshot right, and in this case I think I did! Drawing Hal out of costume in the truest sense, ringless and down on his luck, has been one of the perks of drawing GL lately.
