I started painting again in 2016. A perfect storm of heartbreak, sudden free time, and Mel Ramos Google searches put it in my head that I should try painting some of my favorite comic characters in Mel Ramos’ style. I chose to start with Hawkgirl not just because she’s a personal favorite, but also because Ramos never painted her, just Hawkman. Figured why not start by completing the Hawks.
The pose is based entirely on a panel from Hawkman #9 (Oct, 2016) by Murphy Anderson.
