Horrible Rivals by RocketShoes Horrible Rivals by RocketShoes
I really love Dr. Horrible. I listened to the soundtrack like 50 times while working on this one. Tried out some things with the coloring and lettering. <3 It's been a long time since I've done color holds.

Otakon commission for Rio, who was nice enough to let me take this one home for prints.

Dr. Horrible and Captain Hammer copyright Joss Whedon.

I prefer Dr. Horrible in his red labcoat and black gloves, it makes him that much more threatening and menacing. Just imagine those black gloves being splattered with Hammer's blood... [insert evil laughter here]

I think that's the whole intention of the design. His white clothes in contrast to Hammer's dark ones shows who's actually the good guy in the story. In the end, Dr Horrible turns... diabolic. :P
