The Professionals by wingsofwrath The Professionals by wingsofwrath
A drawing inspired by a webcomic I only stumbled upon yesterday: "Lackadaisy" ([link]) by Tracy J Butler ([link]), a story set in St Louis during the "Roaring 20s".
Despite the fact my drawing does not use any of the characters from the comic, it can be definitely called "fan art" because it's set in the same universe.

Anyway, the story behind the drawing: A couple of "out of town professionals" are about to dispose of another potentially inconvenient ex-employee. You can call it "Social Security", Prohibition Style...

Also, for the gun nuts out there, the rifle is a Polish Mosin-Nagant wz.1891/98/25 carbine in the 7.92 x 57mm Mauser caliber.

The crowbar is just a piece of bent steel.

Gordon Freeman made the crowbar way more cool than it used to be.

True, but then again it is an useful weapon of last resort...

Wow, if I hadn't just rewatched the western "The Professionals" and then tried to find a nice fanart in Deviantart I would have never stumbled upon your fanart and from here to the webcomic.

So thanks a bunch.

cute cats... ma rog, in an ivil kind of way... :giggle:

imi place the blue light glow... deja te face sa te gandesti la un setting... chiar daca nu ai desenat si background-ul...

it was a blue moon night... :giggle:

heh. mersi mult de aprecieri. Chestia cu iluminarea albastra este un truc destul de vechi: o sursa secundara de lumina marcheaza conturul umbrit al personajului facandu-l sa para "3d" desi nu este... E o tehnica pe care am mai folosit-o inainte (vezi alte desene din galerie) dar de care uitasem avand in vedere ca de vre-o doi ani nu am mai prea desenat. Din fericire Tracy Butler avea un tutorial de pictura digitala pe site-ul ei si mi-a reamintit de aceasta tehnica.

In orice caz, intentionez sa imi dezvolt "skills"-urile de pictura digitala in viitorul apropiat, deci prevad ca o sa mai folosesc acest mic truc...
