Saint of Killers.
Probably my favorite character from Garth Ennis' and Steve Dillon's "Preacher" opus. Aside from murdering all the angels and, subsequently, everyone's dear lord and savior, this was his coolest moment in the series. The whole thing turned out a bit more "painterly" than my usual sketches, which worked a bit to my advantage and, at the same time, a bit against me. It really pushed the explosion deep into the background and backlit the Saint well, but it also muddled up some details I wanted brought out. Going to try to balance the technique a bit more so as to keep the weight of the linework in concert with the malleability of the washed out back and middle-grounds.
