SK and Femto look particularly incredible, and the sword is amazing. The glow is perfect.

Your work is awesome, but it needs color garmony.
Sky, SK, Femto, Zodd and Ganishka looks like them were taken from different pictures, and stuck together.

Do you mean color "harmony"?

I'm not sure personally, I think I see what you mean, but I think there should be a fair amount of contrast since its 3 different textures; fur, bone, and demonhide, and they are being affected by different light sources.

I think as for tying all the images together, for me it would just be that I think Zodd should be casting more of a shadow on the part of Ganishka he is hulking over.

*gasp* Holy Gorsh! PHENOMENAL!!!!!

The dimensional slice, the color choice for the sky, the Beherit sword. All masterfully executed. You took a really challenging 2 page spread and made it look like child's play. Not in terms of just laying down the colors but actually dealing well with the exisisting line work that, IMO, was a real head scratcher in terms of adding color. (I'm sure you're following what I mean)

A big round of applause for you. I'm floored right now.

If we have red sky, it must be red light on all objects in picture. Or sky isn't red? Probably its dark, and white lighting shining Ganishka.
Or it is sword?)) Zodd isnt so ultimate brown, possible color of Femto and Ganishka is the same but Ganishka's darker, because of second plan.

Well, you are probably right about this.

Interesting color choice for the hydra, I never even considered it could be red (thought of it more in typical green-brown snake colors I guess). Looks pretty good though, I'm expecting the finished work! :guts:

Pretty nice, Like Aaz said the red is sure an interesting choice. Red = stops, here not the case. If you see read GO!GO!GO!

Looks good!

Those Hydra pictures have a lot of potential for creative thought bubbles or added dialog. The expressions on their faces are priceless when looking at the unicorns.

Now I ride with the mocking and friendly ghouls on the night wind
And play by day in the catacombs
I know that light is not for me, save that of the moon
Yet in my new wildness and freedom I welcome the bitterness of alienage
For I know always that I am an outsider...an outsider...stranger in this century...for a time
A stranger among those who are still...men

ok, here we go with some new stuff on imageshack.

First up:  unicorn draft is done!


ok, ok, I'm kidding.   :troll:   Here are your real choices as clickable thumbnails, with light and dark versions, the better to handle your monitor's color profile, my dear.  And quick color washes for the 'from spaec!!!' pages.







yeeey  :guts:

Wow. First off. Keep the Hydras green with teal underbellys, IMO. (Cuz that's the color I was making them!)  :mozgus:
You even handled the grass the EXACT same way I did. This is so awesome to see because it's SO very close to how I was handling it. Great minds lady! ;) I feel like I got into the DeLorean.

The red hydras are fun but, and I hate to say this, the green are more believable.  :ganishka:

This is precisely how I pictured this spread looking if it were to be colored. MUY BUENO!

The 'world' pages are simply perfectly executed.

I'll get you next time Lith...next tiiime.

Thanks guys!   :guts:  I'm glad you like em! 

Proj!  Noes!  Didn't mean to scoop you.   :griffnotevil:  And your dragon is fucking gorgeous.

I did a quickie from 306 as well (light n dark versions)..





And another color wash, didn't end up looking like much but whatever, I uploaded it  :casca:




Working on a few others as well.

Lol. Aint no thang. Yours came out better anyways.  :slan:

The link for Void's close up doesn't seem to work.  :???:

But the light version of the Ganishka-Tree O' Light is simple but very powerful. Lovin' it!
