Kick Ass - Hobo Extravaganza by Rahll Kick Ass - Hobo Extravaganza by Rahll
One of nine illustrations commissioned by Ignition Interactive for the Kick Ass comic/movie property which I worked on with `adonihs. I ended up having to do each of these in less than a day back in January, which was a real rush compared to what I normally do, but it was a lot of fun.

Not sure if I really need to explain this one. I think it's pretty clear that these hobos are having a good time, enjoying a nice trashcan fire and pondering the mysteries of life. Please ignore the syringes, they're just diabetic hobos, nothing to worry about.

Hope you like it, take care!

BUM 1: I'm tellin' you Bogo! This is how you cook a rat!!!!

Bogo: "BAH!!! I've had better!"

Bum 3: Will the both of you be quiet! I'm out of booze and TRYIN' TO GO INTO A TRANCE OVER HERE SO I CAN FORGET ABOUT MY PROBLEMS!!!!!

Sorry,...it was too tempting, the story was already there so I had to do it, LOL! This is a very beautiful pic. Nice job! The welsh of the colors remind me of an advance children's story book meets a pre-rendered background from a classic PS1 game. I'm sure you have projects back to back, huh?

Nothing more tragic than diabetic hobos. Nice work, especially the light smoke and flame coming from the can.

The lawn chair is by far my favorite part. There are a lot of hobos around where I work, and I see this scene just about every day.

Gotta love hobos. The hobo in the lawn chair should be careful, he could easily get shanked by another hobo envious of his massive homeless success.

Can't wait to see some more kick ass stuff.

Awesome as ever, love the way you did the light in the top right corner, and the bricks look really good as well, and of course all the crazy insane details. It's like a scavenger hunt for little objects scattered throughout the piece.

Great stuff!

Looks badass, sir. But I must say the title put you up for something you don't get :P. I was totally expecting kick-ass to be nailing a bunch of hobos with his batons, haha. This is rather good tho. I will critique once I get my good comp back.

Even though the overall look and emotion in the picture is stunning
the Hobo's bodies look awkward and almost look like they are cartoony
