Hellgirl by Franchesco Hellgirl by Franchesco
Woooo, Scary Kids!!
Okay, not so scary... but fun to doodle on!

From the Fresco Vaults:
Graphite with India Ink Overlay, on Bristol

Please don't judge me too harshly... it was drawn ages ago. I can't recall the last time I actually inked my artwork... feels like a lifetime ago. If memory serves, this was the very first piece I ever colored 100% digitally.

Good times!! :D

You must've used 3 bottles of ink on this piece lol. It still looks good even if it is your old stuff.

Always liked this piece. Seems like if this was Silver Age DC you would hand in this cover and a story would be produced to match it. Cool to see the original layout as well. Amazing colors right out the blocks on your first time. That's just freaky God given talent right there!

Hey, this is an excellent work. I loved it!
And by the way, this week I bought the DVD of Hellboy - director's cut. The deleted scenes did an interesting difference in the history, so with the extended version of Ghost Rider (Yes, I like the first movie, and I hopefully the next one is even better).

you know i always love your stuff so dont take this the wrong way but i feel that you went a tad bit overboard with the inks maybe less black for hellgirl would have been better but the colors look great by the way but i have always loved your pencils they are a true sight to behold. as im always trying to learn from others i always look at art as a fan first and student a close second and looking at it that way i analyze pieces for my own benefit.

What are you talking about man it looks great! Plus it features two of my fave comic book characters of all time! Hellboy who you turned into a female for this, way cool. And of course Ghost who I just totally love! Another one I wish was a print.

Folks really seem to like the idea of Hellgirl. Has she ever actually existed or is she just a fan creation folks love to draw?

As for the piece, darn beautiful as usual. Vampire Batgirl threw me for a loop though. I guess you wanted to get a demon, vampire and ghost all in one. XD

Not sure... far as I know, PYRO... Hellgirl has never existed in actual continuity, or part its mythology.

Way back when, a bunch of artists thought it would be a good idea to all get together and draw "a Hellgirl" So I joined in on the fun... threw in a Ghost and a Vampire-bat in there too, for shlitz and giggles. Ah yes, the good ol' days... when I had time to draw stuff, just for the pure fun of it.

Thank you for the kind words on the pic, my friend! :D

Hey there VALKYRIE :wave:
Missed you guys too... I was off the grid for a while... feels good to me home.

I totally hear you, and I am right there with you: Maybe its why I love deviantART so much... getting to see stuff that's not so called "finished" but just as cool if not cooler... than the stuff we see all done up at the Comic Book Shop.

Glad you digs it my friend!

Thank you mon ami... and dang it... folks can do that now can't they.

Thinking of how it would have been like back in the day:

"Will you marry me!"

"Um, see I totally would, like so very much so... if only we could... but its like, not only frowned upon, its actually illegal... as in written in law books and everything... so its like do it, and you are breaking the law and stuff... so, um... much as I would like to, darn it... I just can't... bummer!"

Now folks can't use that excuse anymore...
whose the genius who got rid of that automatic get out of jail free card?

(All kidding aside, thanks for the props on the pic, MUAD... and I totally would marry you, but dang, its like illegal and stuff, no really, it still is... don't listen to those folks on the news, they all got it wrong... bummer!)

Haha if you really want to get out of marrying me
you could always move to Iran, they wont let anyone
have any fun^^

I wonder about your process at times, the shadows
and things like hair seems so planned out. But i
wonder if you know it so well know that it just
flows out of you... you need to make a video.
And not the kind of videos you made when you were
low on money in the 80s

Wishing I could say that there is a means to my madness... but I just go and do it all on autopilot. I am sure there are some basic guidelines I follow on some level... but for the most part, its like, hey that looks kinda cool... and I go with that, only to look at it years later and regret those choices... but it was the best I could do at the time, with what I knew at the time.

And no problemo, Muad... those tapes can be found in all better video stores in Iran. I am like the Jerry Lewis and Hasselhoff of France over there! Yes, I am that famous over there... feel free to idolize me!

Now that is the right way to make art. Just go
with what feels right. Its why i try to do with
my inking and writing. I got my core rules but
otherwise i just riff away.

Oh really? I would have thought the north koreans
would like you better.

I had to do a double take and smile... at first glance, I thought you were putting me on. (Your post showed up right next to one from SculptorTim... literally). So I was like, hah hah funny, then I remembered you can't see my Reply Stacks on your end... so I got a kick from the irony. So I'm typing "Yeah, I know of Tim's work..." as I am seeing his Avatar right next to yours, that never happens. Small world :D
