Badly coloured.... Better by spidermanfan2099 Badly coloured.... Better by spidermanfan2099
Hmmmmm....

I'm undecided on this!

Lineart done by the exquisitely talented David Williams/Brohawk, great work, really loose and flowing and really leads you in. Check his gallery... ([link]), and heres the original... ([link])

Colours and random arm thrashing by myself, 2099.

This was just an experiment, I hadn't worked on Brohawks lines before (does it show!) and really wanted to stay loose and 'get outside the box' as everyone keeps saying.

I'm okay with Bats and Cats, but I hate Huntress, maybe that shows... aaargh, its sooo damn hard loosening up with your work you know?

It was all about only allowing myself 2 steps back at all times... if it looked odd, or unclean I was all like 'leave it, leave it, see what happens in 20 mins'

1 texture used and only 3 colours for a pallette (apart from some muted flats).

I'm off to drown myself in the kitchen sink (I am quite a short, it should be perfect)

Rad!

Edit- Took in what Wade said (see comments) and tried to pull Huntress out a little more, and tweaked a few bits! I think it looks a little better, I dont think I can take it any further, I am getting the itch to move on now.

I think it looks okay. I certainly like the look of Batman. But how he's bending at his abs just doesn't look natural. Maybe if you positioned him falling from the sky with his upper torso positioned how it is already, it'll look 10 times better. I also think the sky should be a different color. Maybe something darker like blue or purple. Just in my opinion ;D

The Lineart is not mine, its Brohawks! I'm just a colourist, and the challenge for me was using a limited palette! I like the sky myself, I tried a few different colours and liked this the most in the end. Blue didn't seem to have that violent Gotham feel to it for me. Thanks for the input though :)
