Color commission piece of a fantasy Avengers line-up by our very own Eric Henson. I tried to push some things, so hit me with your best shot.
C&C's for everybody!!!!

This was the first time I've really tried to use the motion blur over a character to show movement, so I'd be really interested in hearing your opinions on that aspect. This one had two versions. This one was a challenge because of the tonal pencils and the size of some of the characters. I ended up doing 100% color holds after playing around with the settings and trying different combos to allow the color to come through from behind the pencils.

I made some changes to my original image to bring some glows out on the demon shadow and incorporate it into the wall a bit better. I also put the building in the background into some more shadow to help bring out the foreground.
Just for goofs, this was the original direction I was taking with the image. I incorporated the changes here too, but didn't really play around with things much more than that, so I would still call this a work in progress if I was still going forward with a night scene.
Been crazy busy at work and at home. Here are some of the things that I've been working on lately. Love to hear what anyone thinks about them. C&C's are more than welcome.
Tonal pencils by Eric Henson
Working on pencils can be a challenge, but I think working with tonal pencils can actually be more challenging. The rendering (for the most part) is already there, so just putting some flats underneath it can give it the appearance of a fully rendered piece. I like the challenge of trying to find ways to bring more out of the pencils. Not that I want to work on it all the time..... :?

This was a lot of fun. Leonel's style is very reminiscent of Mike Wieringo.
Wow, this whole page is beautiful.

Matt Zolman did this pin-up f of Dyna-girl and some of the other cast from Fallen Justice. I liked it so much that I did some colors for it. I'm not wild about the background and am totally open to some suggestions for it.

Here is the follow up to the Big 12 Poker piece. A lot of the detail gets lost at the reduced size, especially the jersey mesh. Ah well. Yes, the A&M mascot is a male this time around, not the female it's supposed to be, but we'll file that under creative license. :) I also re-created the logo since I couldn't find one of a suitable size online that would blow up without looking too rough. Hence the font isn't exactly right.
C&C's more than welcome!!
