Mortadelo y Filemon - Hardcore!

If you're reading this and you're not Spanish or German, you probably don't know who Mortadelo y Filemon (or Mort & Phil, or Clever & Smart) are. Imagine the silliest, goofiest slapstick comic, bar any deeper substance, consisting of 100 % comic violence and sight gags.

If there's one series that never needed a hardcore, dark 'n' gritty makeover, it's this. So I made one. Read on to see the full image and closeups of each character. Bonus sketch included!

Character: Erkan

Nothing fancy this time - although I tried to get the idea of a loose, badly fitting leisure suit into the picture. This guy is a concoction of all the standard mobster clichés you can think of, with a bitchin' mustache to boot.

Character: Susanna (+ sketches)

Other than lovely Susanna here (inspired by the artwork for a certain strategy video game about... wars of the advanced kind), this time you'll also find her earlier versions and a handful of shapely figure sketches.

Sketch Collection 2 (digital drawing edition)

And in my neverending quest for some decent ability with "light" drawings (I won't dare call it realistic), here's a few sketches. From latest to most awful.

Both faces are done digitally with a rough line sketch. Reference was used for the lighting.
