Concept Sketch: "Mack" by Cryptcrawler Concept Sketch: "Mack" by Cryptcrawler
Darryl's polar opposite and partner of 15 years; J.T. "Mack" McCarthy
I really got into this one too and had loads of fun trying to coax the attitude I wanted out of the piece, I think I did alright.
As you can (hopefully) already tell, Mack is roughly the same age as Darryl (45) and Mack is also an angry asshole a lot of the time, pretty much to everyone but Darryl - youll have to wait to find out why.

Ironically im probably going to have more shits and giggles writing for Mack than I am for Darryl, since being a stubborn, irish prick comes much more naturally to me than anything else! :giggle:

As always - thanks for coming by the gallery and giving me your time.
Best wishes,
Brad

Yeah im sure there is some stuff thats off. His eyes do look a little shunted off to the left, for sure.
These are rough concepts, not finished, polished pieces.
Ill be going back to fix some stuff on them for sure.

I had a few pictures up of actors I liked for this guy and kind of added them all together in my head: Kurt Russel, Jeff Bridges were just a few.
