Karate Kid vs Karnak by spidermanfan2099 Karate Kid vs Karnak by spidermanfan2099
Karate Kid (Val Armor) vs Karnak (of the Inhumans)

Pencils and inks by Ian Richardson :iconpencilsandstrings: check his gallery for more of this goodness :D

Done as a commission for Travis Ellisor :icondoughnut42: and then Travis passed it on to me for the colour commission.

Check out Travis Comicartfans gallery here for more Karate Kid goodies...

I'm just pushing the cuts rendering as much as I can at the moment to take things to their limits I guess, find a middle ground. Looking at alot of Dodson's work which is clearly making me do it (not influencing the style, just the approach). Lots of fun this one, took a while though fiddling about with a bg, Travis liked this and so its the keeper.

In my opinion... Karnak might win this one, well i'm a Karnak fan so i'm a bit biased (always loved the character and how mysterious he is!)... I think I might have threw that suggestion at Travis ages ago... what a fight!!

All I seem to be colouring is Karate and Kung Fu and Ninja's lately... thats a pretty sweet deal I reckon haha :D

Hope you like guys.

Cheers and Rad

I really like the lighting work you did on this one--the little shine you threw on Karnak's head is a nice touch.
