I started doing another piece before this one, and ended up abandoning it. I’ll come back around to it some time in the future, but I moved on to this. So, lets get started.
I began with the concept shown in the very beginning , and went from there. For what I wanted, there was going to be a large background, similar to the one I used in the Patriot picture. So, I took the Green Hornet emblem, and made a large poster like picture from it.
Next, I started on a picture of The Green Hornet himself. The outfit is only similar in that he’s wearing a fedora & trench coat. The details on the outfit overall where added as I illustrated it.
Here, I began illustrating a Tommy Gun. I know The Green Hornet, carries a stylized pistol, but I wanted to give him a weapon that represented a sort of mafioso feel. And so, the Tommy Gun it was.
Kato was literally done exactly like The Green Hornet. I just made up the costume as I drew it. All I knew was that I didn’t want it to look exactly like the chauffer uniform Bruce Lee wore. So, I gave him the Chinese vest with the hornet emblem on the back.
Then, I started Lenore "Casey" Case, Brit Reid’s secretary. The only thing I changed here was from the original concept piece. Here, her dress is red instead of green, and her hands are in her lap, instead of back in the resting position.
And finally, The Black Beauty. I don’t really do much outside of people & landscapes, and I had drawn this car like five times before buckling down to do it. With that finished, it was time to put everything together.
Well, that’s about it, The Green Hornet, with Kato, “Casey”, and The Black Beauty. The music tracks are all from the Green Hornet OST from the T.V. series, all except the last one, which was the full theme.
