Hey Guys. I've been working on this for a while. Some of you may know I released a song called Vigilante a while back.. well the theme of the song made me create a character called Frank. Before I got into the guitar, drawing was my first love. I hadn't really kept it up but I started again recently. I'm a bit out of practise and my art is never going to win any awards but I think the rough and ready approach works for what I want..

Anyway, I plan on expanding this story. I know where I want it to go and it's going to be one hell of a task but it should be worth it when it's done ! I hope you enjoy. biggrin.gif

awesome dude, Im a big comic book / graphic novel geek so this is right up my street biggrin.gif
first impressions gave me a bit of a ' mark millar' vibe to it, which is very cool. I'd definitely be up for reading more smile.gif
artwork is really good, hell I've paid for graphic novels where the artwork wasn't even half as good!

I find hands very tough too.. in fact, they're probably my nemesis ! wink.gif

Not played it but watched it all, yes !

I think Frank's brutally honest thoughts and phrases are reminiscent of Payne.. and I guess the close protection job for VIP's too. Although the security job and ex forces thing is more inspired by books I've read about real people smile.gif

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.

indeed smile.gif very good.

have you done this kind of thing before or have you got a bit of a graphic novel collection? Im just curious because the 'camera' angles ( or layout ) of the panels is really good, It really flows well visually.
I liked the part when his adrenalin kicks in, I get the impression you are well up on the mechanics of self defence and confrontations.

liked it a lot dude.
