Very early color stage on this guy. He started off as an eeeevil Batman type, but as I drew him he just kind of evolved and warped in really fun ways. The goofy face was an accident in drawing, but I liked it so I started thinking more about who he could be instead of what I intended. That led to him getting a little paunch for a belly, like there might be some greed inherent to his character. Then his costume shifted -- bigger gauntlets, bigger boots, bigger gun -- and I decided to make him the internal strong-arm for the bad guys, the enforcer. I'd always planned on making him German so I googled the translation and ... Vollstrecker.
A friend looked at him and said he looks like Mok from 'Rock 'n Rule.' Big difference in characters but now I hear that voice whenever I look at Vollstrecker. I'm okay with that.
*** NEUFASSUNG DER VOLLSTRECKER!!! ***
I'm sure that's incorrect in German, but in English I'm saying that I updated the Vollstrecker. People really respond to this guy, pot belly and all.
