NOT Judge Judy by spidermanfan2099 NOT Judge Judy by spidermanfan2099
The Judge!

This was a big piece for me... I really want to get a more refined look to some of my colours. I am aiming for a snippet of Bisley and Granov with these darker efforts... hoping it works.

Lines by the fantastic Ian Richardson ([link])... check out his gallery for some rad pencil work. Here's the original pencils too... ([link]).

Colours by Myself, 2099.

This was another of those experiments, kinda digi paint! I have come to the conclusion about how I will work on these from now on, and it feels good to have some idea at last :)

Took around 8 hours all in I guess (I dont keep track), alot of stopping to check it over and see how I could proceed. I had a massive migraine for the last hour or so playing with it... that was fun, but I had to get it done.

Pretty pleased with how its turned out, I feel like i've progressed in terms of the style and detail.

BG was fun too, if not a bitch at one point... grrr

Hope you all like anyway, I know the dreddites out there will ;)

Rad/Drokk

Edit - I got the colour of the waist pouches wrong, thanks to Metal-Truncator for the heads up.

That gritty texture you put on his suit.. Can you share it? or did you paint it in manually? Ive seen similar textures in comics a lot, and i wish I could use it because it's perfect. Help!

Its something I made up from a few textures, you can find similar stuff by googling 'vintage texture stock' and searching for a large file. I wont give out my own one as I use it so much, and I have to keep some personal tricks ;)

this is great. i love dredd. i got to do a 2000ad story ages ago. not dredd, though. in fact, it was probably one of the worst things they've ever published.

valkyries, or some nonsense. the story was truly dreadful and i'm ashamed to say i didn't do much to help it. nothing, in fact.

Well if the story was bad... you know what they say about not being able to polish a turd, so i'm sure it wasn't your fault haha! 2000AD does putout some seriously bizzare stuff from time to time ;)

joltinjohnnylucas Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2010
yeah. but as the artist you're supposed to find inspiration. i phoned it in. there are a few things i liked about it, but not much. i drew it about 7-8 yrs ago.

:iconspidermanfan2099:
spidermanfan2099 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2010
Yeah, I know how that works... sometimes there just is NO inspiration though (I get some duff stuff sent my way on occassion which is mind numbing!)

8 years of improvements from you though on the plus side though!

I would almost pay to see a comical piece of Judge Judy in Judge Dredd. Almost.

This one is nice though. :thumbsup:

Very nice work. There just isn't enough good Dredd fanart about, but you picked some nice lines and really did them justice with your colouring. This would certainly have looked great as a back-page poster on one of the old progs! ^_^
