Don Quixote by AxelMedellin Don Quixote by AxelMedellin
Sketch and inks in the scraps section...

Well, I fiddled a lot with the colors, I tried to get a more "fantastic" feel than usual, didn't mind much for the realistic details but for the overall effect... this was colored in about three hours. It was fun doing this, I hadn't drawn a character from literature before. Maybe I'd do it different if I had more time, but anyway... there you go.

First part in a trilogy...

Awesome design and use of color make Don Quixote by ~nancynismo worth taking a look at. Don't miss the rest of this deviant's gallery while you're at it! ( Featured by silentkitty )

I wonder how they would sing,
it would be totally cool to go see "Man Of LaMancha" with a set design like this.

That's amazing. His journey has made him so haggard he ceases to be a man.

Hey nancynismo,

Sorry for not responding. I finished this a while ago. I'm not used to checking my messages. Here's a link to the coloring job I did if you're interested:

Your work is really fantastic. Thanks for replying.

Really awesome. It's really spooky, but somehow comical.
