Deadshot

definitive

My personal definitive way of drawing iconic characters

Man, I was obsessed with Deadshot before it was cool. Does that make me a hipster?

I remembered him from the DC Who’s Who, and when he showed up in Suicide Squad I was fascinated. When Ostrander did the miniseries around ’88 I was hooked.

Luke McDonell laid a lot of groundwork for how Deadshot would look, but I have to say it was Geoff Isherwood’s simplified design that really resonated with me, and really informs my take.
