I had promised you time ago, my dear friend Tarp, that I would draw you something...something especially for you.
I really could not think of anything else you would like better than this!...
It might seem alittle odd, that's because I used coloured pencils in most of the picture, to try this material I'm not so used to, in a character who I'm not used to draw either...I really took all the time I could to get him as right as I could...
Did I make it??? Does Abe look good for your taste?
I hope he does!...Though I wonder...Is he waving at you, or would he touch you to capt your memories and such?...
Enjoy it, my friend!:iconsmeagolsmileplz:

I'd LOVE to see the female of the species:"Babe" Sapien!! ;)  A cute girlie pose with her webbed feet kicked-up behind her would look divine!!

Love this character!!

His personality, skills :D

You've really captured his spirit in this one. :D

Love the pose, the shadow over his face and the way he holds out his hand. But we all know he can read minds with those hands, so that gesture can be interpreated a whole lot of ways. Beautiful. Simply, breathtaking :)

I do too, he's my favorite from Hellboy! ^^

Thank you!..I did all I could to get him right, I have rarely drawn Abe! ^^

Thanks a whole lot for saying this!...I tried my best to make the gesture half undecypherable, it's ambiguos precisely because of that: is he greeting us?...reaching out to read into our heads?...just offerin g high five?...we're left to guess!

I feel flattered! thank you again! :bow:

:D I'll admit to a mild crush on him, and Hell Boy too.

And yes, it's a gorgeous gesture.

:iconhellboyplz: Oh great, it's her again.
Abe: Who? (focuses) Oh, Lady Despair, I do so detest being near her, she does radiate painful waves for me to read.
:iconhellboyplz: Well, it aint pleasant for me either. I've pumped enough silver and holy water into her to kill a thousand werewolves and vamps, and she still keeps coming back

Those two are so GREAT CHARACTERS...Each in their own way!

Juicy sweet pecs! :drool:
Did she like it? O.O
That Abe's a casanova!

Casanova? Abe? I don't think Abe would know what to do with a woman if she sat naked in his lap!
Oh great! Now there is a vision I could do without! :no:
.
He seems to be a bit of an innocent. That is part of his appeal.
.
He doesn't get much romance. :(

Nommo?...LOL...That's Abe from Hellboy...Have you seen some of that series?...He might have come out strange, for I had never drew him in color before.

Oh ya, I remember him in Hellboy! Ya, he was cool had gadgets and had to swim againt the demon things.

Nommo's are the children of Amma the dogon sky god. Dogon's are a mysterious tribe of people who new about the two suns of sirius A - B before anyone could possibly have known the second sun was there. When we look at sirius we see one star, but if you use the hubble telescope it is actually a binary star system.

Exactly! That was him!...My friend Tarpalsfan adores him, and the Hellboy series, so I made this picture as a gift for her.

And the strangest thing is Sirius is my guiding star. :)
Yes, they're actually two...still, they're positioned in a way we can't distinguish it by mere sight...fascinating isn't it?
I didn't know about nommos or Amma, thought I'd heard something about Dogons...I'll find out more! They sound very interesting...And I love ancient cultures.

You did very well for a medium and subject you aren't used to. It has dramatic lighting, and you got all the details. Looks like something straight out of the hellboy comics, but more specifically shaped and illustrated. Bravo!

Wow Sweety! :eyes:
You should have heard me squeel when I saw this! (scared the hell out of Cat'! too! :evilaugh:) You should have seen me-I jumped up and licked the monitor! (POO! it is/was very dusty and not very Abe like at all. Not that I've licked him before..:( ).
Anyway, I LOVE this-He really is beautiful! You say that your not used to colored pencil? I can't agree! The colors and reflexions are incredible. You drew him better that I can! The details, honey! You ought to draw Abe more often-you have down pat girl!
I want to put him in the Gungan Cafe, and some other clubs too! He deserves LOTS of love! :dance: Wow I love him! You made my day, dear. Your honestly did! I really can't say how awed I am be this! :faint:
