Blackest Night: Batman was so intense! I almost cried at point but it's just so freaking awesome I just finish read the first volume and can't wait to get the second Btw when Tim brought the plane to help the words 'Badass' just pop into my head lol
Well, the whole page looks really great. But I'd love to know how you achieved the realistic effect on the smoke without obliterating the lines. I can't seem to get it right, though I use many different brushes to experiment, I'm never quite satisfied. Can you tell? Thanks a lot.
I just don't know what the limits are as regards going over the lines. When I have to paint smoke, fire or clouds it happens the same. Some say it's disrespecful with the penciller, some say it's ok as it looks more realistic. I should ask the artist. Do you ask? Or do you just apply your good judgement?
Gritty Batman--that is just cool. The teeth have been mentioned, but not be me, they look great love the smokey debris cloud I imagine it would be rather bittersweet to work on the last of anything, On one hand you are a Batman-fangirl so I know it was fun for you to do. Haven't read it personally, but I've enjoyed the images you have shared with us!
great tension in each individual shot. I would just critique that it looks like the tension is lessening, because the "camera" is moving out, as opposed to in... probably a question of taste, i think i would have gone in and then finished with the last shot that is the last in yours too (the vehicle hitting the ground, i mean)... but just excellent artwork as always. coloring is superb.
