WOW!!! You did one heck of a job on this. The cape and chains are alive, the pose is powerful and dynamic...there is nothing that I don't like about this. Very strong piece. Great work!


PS, they'd love this over at the Pen & Ink forum, also.

Whoa almost gave credit to the wrong person... anyway nevermind... THIS IS GREAT... If you've got the time I say go for it... How would you plan to color it? Pencil, watercolor or digitally?
I'd love to see it go the extra mile...

was thinking of CP and digital.... a guy in my game clan has access to a 36" scaner at his wifes work so I'm going to have her scan it for me and when I get a chance I will get my feet wet in paint shop pro.. and as for the CP duno, I'll have to think about it. I will more than likely leave it b/w.. I like that way

and i am glad everyone likes it, I am working on one of the pit now (a hole lot smaller scale) should be done in a few days... I will post it when I'm done

wrong person???? is there a fellow spawn nut here, if so point me in their direction....

Is this an original illustration or rendered from existing Spawn art? If you did do this out of your head, you should be working under Todd McFarlan instead of making us lightweights jealous with your professional skill. You might as well try your hand at coloring it (obviously save a copy of the original b/w). Color would only amplify the magnitude of this illustration. One critique however...You can clearly see the pen strokes in the large expanses of black at the middle and bottom of the piece. You could either use a fatter tipped marker or digitally clean it up in a graphic editing program. Well done, hats off.

No the pose is not unique to my brain but to Todd's. Its my enlargement of an orig. print that Todd had done for the first spawn rel. with some changes to the shadding. The guy with scanner in my club was an apprentice under Todd for a few years. He has an orig 11 x 17 ruff sketch fo this signed and framed on his office wall, along with a lot of other sketches, story boards, etc..from his time at image that he won't let me touch with 10ft pole. the pitt i'm working on it all me though.. useing several posses from existing art work as a ref.

yeah the lines do show up but when i do the digital work to i will do a complete clean up of all the color. when i showed it to the guy in my club he said to get a paint brush and some water and blend out the marks that way next time as i do the inking. he said the only way to fix this would to re-ink it with a broad tip tech pin and blend it out as i go... think i will just leave it be and clean it up with the pc. for fear of messing it up.
