Punisher Max 19 Figure

I did this when I was in Italy working on a film. I wanted to do a digitally painted background so all I really needed to do for illustration was this figure. This is one of my personal favorites. In the storyline a mobster (Nicky Cavella) has desecrated the graves of The Punisher's wife and children. The scene is shown on a local newscast where Frank Castle sees it while having some grub at a diner. I wanted to show a subdued rage boiling beneath the surface with this shot. Like The Punisher is the Angel of Death, stalking Cavella to punish him for his brutal act of sacrilege. I think the black and white illustration gives the character more impact and rawness then the color could provide.
