Color Me: DEATH (star)!!!

Scary title, eh? Yeah, I know! Here's the colored version of yesterday's work. I tweaked Han's leg a bit. The knee was off and the hatching didn't follow the shape of the thigh that well.

Also, Mike Manley pointed out that Chewbacca's other hand was missing. Well, actually he thought the hand I had drawn was the other hand and that my Wookie Anatomy was off...! Anyway, I thought with the angle I had drawn that the hand wouldn't show.

It's really hard to justify standing by your art when someone points out a something that confuses them. Unless your art is intentionally vague - it's your responsibility as an artist to "tell the story". So - I changed it immediately!

Sadly, there's probably a million other things wrong with it but I'm content for the most part with how it came out!

Very nice Dan. The colors turned out great.

I didn't know you were here. It's nice to get an insider's look at your work. 'Death' turned out nicely.

I'm so stupid, I did a google search to find out what kind of pencils you were using. Now I remember someone talking about Cintiq.

Drink & Draw Social Club? When I drink and draw I do it alone -- a sad lonely misanthrope artist. Nice drawings from the sketch club. Great blog!

Looks great Dan,
Love the progression with each stage bringing so much more.
You have every right to be content, in fact I'd say down right proud of this one.

That's a good Chewbacca likeness, Dan.

Hi dan.
Wow, the color version is even better than the BW. Great the idea to put the orange line around the characters.
Great pic!!!!
