Commission: "In aller Ehrlichkeit" (Sir Gawain and the Green Knight)

i am back with a long overdue commission for a good friend. the finished drawing is called "In aller Ehrlichkeit" (means "in honesty and sincerity"). the assignment was simple: i should listen to a "King Arthur" audio book part called "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight", read the relevant selfmade comic pages provided by the client and do my thing... fan art so to say. ;) it had to be analog and based on his creation. since i love to draw with a ballpen, i thought i'd give my own branded "ROADSIDE PICNIC/David Müller"-pens a go (originally produced as a handout for my thesis-exhibition a few months ago). so here you have it, hope you like. :)

i did this for the awesome Walter Pfau, a german artist i met two years ago on the "COMIC SALON" in Erlangen. he's doing a comic adaption of "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight", check out his unique style and the ambitious project over here:

beside the finished piece i posted detail shots and some work in progress photos. my scanner didn't catch all the detail (lines that where too soft vanished unfortunately), but i still like the digital outcome. maybe i am going to do a coloured version later on.

(100% hand-drawn blue ballpen painting, DIN A4 - black and white version via cs3)

Du hast das Original dann in ein paar Tagen, Walter! Den Kugelschreiber mit dem's gemacht wurde, leg' ich dir wie angekündigt natürlich bei... auch wenn der warscheinlich so gtu wie leer ist. Was lange währt... ;)

Lovely! Do you frequently commission? I'd love to contract you for some work.
