Man, it seems like I’ve been having a lot of unrelated conversations about Silverhawks lately, and I haven’t had much time to sketch for myself. So it’s high time I scratched both itches!
WINDHAMMER Pencil, brush pen, and crayon on 5×8.5″ bristol.
I plan on talking about this at length in a future Lean Into Art Cast, but Silverhawks is, in my mind, one of the most creative cartoon series ever made, hands down. Maybe the acting was a little stiff. Maybe the writing in the later seasons didn’t shine. But in terms of overall concept and design, I have yet to see an equally creative action/adventure cartoon. Don’t believe me? check out the intro!
Oh, and if you liked this sketch, I’m holding a commission sale for a limited time, and in limited quantities! What 80s/90s cartoon character would you like me to draw for you?
