The upcoming movie Suicide Squad is a great inspiration for artists. I see a lot people who make 'fan art' of The Joker (played by Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), or Deadshot (Will Smith), but another interesting character of the movie is El Diablo (played by Jay Hernandez).
El Diablo "A former Los Angeles gang member who can summon flames. Hernandez sets his character apart from his teammates as he "just wants to stay out of the fight", while "most of the Squad members are happy to get out there and kill people"
So far I haven't seen any artwork of him. That's why I thought, Why don't I give it a shot?
For my design, I used the picture of El Diabo in the official cast photo.
I tried to draw (in Adobe Illustrator) El Diablo as realistically as I could. It was kinda hard with his face tattoos.
I got a lot of great responses on it, so when the official artwork for the movie came out, I used my artwork to match it a little with the original.
I hope you guys like my post.
