Early Liefeld Hawk and Dove samples

Found some early sketches and samples from Hawk and Dove comics and thought I’d share them with the rest of you.

These were my early designs for Dawn Granger/Dove. I favored the first sketch on the left. I always campaigned for more hair. Eventually they decided on the pony tail look, sans the stripes down the side of Dove’s legs in the middle sketch.

This is one of the Hawk and Dove sample pages that secured the job for me back in 1987. I was 19 years old and had done 3 jobs for DC before I won the starting gig on Hawk and Dove. Very exciting times for a young artist. The Kesel’s story was amazing from start to finish.
