Collossal Kirby Mitts

Here are the pencils to yesterday’s inked FIRESTORM commission. If you compare the two, you’ll notice the hands are a bit different. That’s because the person I was doing the piece for pointed out that I’d given FIRESTORM gigantic hands in the manner of Jack Kirby. Sometimes you can’t help your roots, but I was happy to rework the art so the hands were more in line with actual anatomy.

    Big hands, big feet, big ears…it’s a guy thing.

    As if the guy who commissioned it knew any better. I personally find it offensive that he would dare say anything like that. I think the hands look great in the pencils image.
