Mina and The Monster by AdamHughes Mina and The Monster by AdamHughes
A LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN drawing, done at HeroesCon in Charlotte this past weekend. The quickest way to get a decent sketch from me is to pick subject matter I love. LEAGUE is my favorite comic, hands down.

Done in a bound sketchbook with Copic markers.

AND if you read the darn comic, you'd know he's not copping a feel, he's feeling her heartbeat. :-)

****Update*****

Wow! Lots of comments on this one! Just to clear up some things, for those who have no idea what's going on...

SHE is Mina Murray, from Bram Stoker's DRACULA.

HE is Edward Hyde, from Robert Louis Stevenson's THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE.

Those shapes in the back ARE the Martian Tripods from H. G. Welles' WAR OF THE WORLDS.

You can find all of them (and more!) in THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, Vol. II, by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill.

Really wissh that they woudl do another volume/mini-series of Extraordinary Gentlemen, then they could hire you to do the whole thing (covers & interior artwork).   Your depictions of the classic characters are brilliant.  And for the record, I got the whole artwork before I even read your comment, and everything was and is pretty clear, especially the classic Literature references.  Until you pointed it out, it didn't even occur to me that Hyde was copping a feel.  Hah!  bet he did anyway.

The film's been a naughty pleasure of mine (I can't help it. Rodney Skinner and the Dante-Beast kick major booty). But Hyde....I love him so much more in the comics then the film. Yes, he's an animal, and damn was he a brute with what he did to Griffin (though I shed no tears on that. The Invisible Man had it coming a mile away), but damn he's the face of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I miss his border-line Cockney attitude. :(

Nonetheless, I absolutely love this picture. The Hyde in the comic seemed to regress into a more human form once he started to realize his "love" for Mina, but this image still has him as a goblin with enough humanity in him so as not to look like a full on monster. Bravo! :iconbwavoplz:

Amongst the things a man could ask for before being horribly burned by alien invaders, groping a woman's breast has got to be at least number three on the list.
