Poison Ivy by spidermanfan2099 Poison Ivy by spidermanfan2099
Poison Ivy.

Lineart by the insanely precise Sky-Boy, the inks alone were what drew me in, but the actual pencil work is tight too. If you dont know Sky Boy (or Gary as his name is) definitely check over his gallery at...

And the original inks can be seen here...

Colours by myself, 2099.

Just a warmup between pages. I'm really drawn to that vintage/retro style of lineart at the mo... very clean and crsip, with wide open spaces, gives me more of a challenge in some respects. I tried to keep the rendering quite minimal on this as the lines were so solid, but push the colourholds more (like that old Colossus piece from ages back!)... felt more illustratory/graphical at times.

I left the BG completely apart from some gradients and the textures, all the focus is on Ivy.

Pretty pleased with how it turned out, love the softness and the vintage feel.

Hope you all like,

Cheers and Rad :D

Yes I believe you chose the exactly the right approach for this piece and did a phenomenal job putting colors on some phenomenal inking. Your colors enhanced the classical feel of the face and inks.
