Today's brief entry is a convention drawing I did of Puck, from Alpha Flight (see previous post). This is one of the best convention sketches I have ever done. Probably because Puck is fun to draw, but also because the guy I was drawing for, Milo, was friendly and jokey!
We joked about artists not usually drawing backgrounds on their convention sketches which is why Puck is happily bouncing through a detailed backdrop of trees and rocks. I commented that Puck was apparently always in pain because of his dwarfism. I had never heard that little people experience regular pain from their condition. I always thought of Puck as a fun character with a happy spirit. If he's in pain he hides it well. That is why he smiles as he says "Ow!".
I think Puck's legs are probably too long in this drawing which will upset Steve but it's too late to change it now.
