Sorry for the little delay on the Grendel piece here, but I tried a couple of different things with the colors, as you can see. I think this piece came out even better then I thought it would, and a lot of my coworkers agree. They said it's "looser" then my usual style and they think the blacks really make it stand out from a lot of my previous pieces. I wasn't able to REALLY capture the extreme perspective that I originally wanted to for this piece (see the sketch), but it IS on a slight angle, so close enough.

Only other thing I think about this piece I wanted to mention, is that I wanted to make it really dark and eerie, and scary (much how Grendel should be), but like most of my colored pieces, they come out kinda bright and colorfully happy looking. Go figure. So I wasn't able to do that, but oddly enough, it kinda works, so I'm very happy with it. I hope you like it. I also hope you like the process of getting to the top, finished piece. I wont show the process for every piece I do from here on out, but felt these last few pieces were worth showing. I really like this process though, and I will most likely continue doing this in the future, even if I don't post it that way.

Last up we have DARKHAWK from the batch of work I've done recently! It'll be up soon, don't know when, because I may wait for Steve Wands to finish his inks on it. I will still do my process like above, but this Darkhawk piece will be special because Steve will be inking a version of it too! YAY! Can't wait to show you, cause it's a cool piece too!

Until then,

Dude, the final colors really make this piece rock.--Great job.

Thanks Steve, I meant to call you over to show you this one, cause I knew you would dig it!

So thank you! How's Darkhawk coming along? lol

Have a great weekend, say hi to the family for me!
