Okay so do you remember the time that Matt Fraction described Clint and Kate’s relationship as ‘The Avengers (UK) of The Avengers (US)’?
Obviously I thought that was pretty badass, and had a jolly time drawing dapper-as-fuck!Hawkeyes.. it just took me awhile to figure out how to get Clint and Kate rocking a believable Steed and Mrs. Peel vibe. (If Clint’s suit looks familiar, congratulations, you get the other half of the joke.)
Starry-eyed gratitude to an archer (yes, that one specifically :D ) who very graciously provided reference images and general archery consultation. Seriously, this was way less cool before I begged him for input. Thank you, Archer!
Musical inspiration: Tank! (yeah, no, I couldn’t resist) And if you’ve read all the way to the bottom and are still confused, Hawkeye. Matt Fraction. David Aja. It’s a thing. Read the thing. Thank me later.
