Joe Kubert passes away at 85

Joe Kubert has been a massive influence on me over the last few years
and it was sad to hear that he had passes away on the 12th August, it is
incredible to think that he was right their at the start of the comic
books industry in the early 1940's and at the age of 85 was still
producing comic pages like a hungry young hotshot, with know sign of
slowing down.

here are some drawings based on Joe's own drawings of his character TOR,
I just love Joe's use of his brush line in all his work and have tried
to achieve that similar brush line here, i have lots to learn.
