-Gilead and Jet- by Dualmask -Gilead and Jet- by Dualmask
Full color commission for :iconhulkdaddyg:, all done. He asked for an image showing the size difference between his own Gilead and my Jet Dancer. I'm flattered and humbled that Gary actually hired me to draw my own character along with his. Hope he likes it and you as well!

Gilead Gary Pope :iconhulkdaddyg:

Jet Dancer Jonathan Price :icondualmask:

Photoshop CS4, not sure how long, maybe five hours (mostly experimenting with different approaches to the lighting).

The coloring on this pic is really interesting- a good use of highlights and tones. The muscularity of Gilead is particularly well-represented (esp. on his lower legs, which is a challenging thing to get right). What I really like about the pic is the size comparison itself. Each character is substantial, and the difference in size, though considerable, "feels" realistic.

Thanks a lot! I don't draw men nearly enough. I had to look at quite a bit of reference to make headway with Gilead's build, and I feel good about the outcome. Jet was easy and almost pales in comparison to him... perhaps I drew him too well. Heh.

Thanks, Barry! I'm actually quite proud of how well I drew Gilead here. It's not often I draw a male character as well as I did here.

Glad you dig! :D Honestly, there's no secret. Photoshop...white highlights on an Overlay layer, shadows in dark blue on a Soft Light layer and the occasional Gaussian blur. Other than that, it's just practice. :)

I have always needed to improve my shading. Thank you for that tip.

Thanks, Rod! I was going for Jet being a little flirty but I'm not sure how well I pulled that off.

Heh I'm tempted to ask you to draw Jet with Ace Williams or my Lupin character now too. Nice job

Okay :). Er where do you have the commission prices again?

I really should have that price list more prominently displayed... ^^; It's actually not much of a "list" but now that I think about it, I should expand it some more.

Nice job! I really dig the way you did Gilead's face! I do see that this was out of your comfort zone though and I'm glad to push you a little. The colors and inks are quite nice, too. Great work on this, JP. Thanks!

Well, it wasn't THAT far out of my comfort zone. I'm not totally incompetent when it comes to males, especially since I actually have more male characters in my cast than female...I just draw the women more often. ^^; Glad you like it!

I have another sketch I need to finish up, a bonus just for your birthday, but that's going to be a little while longer. :)

The comfort zone was not the male, but Gilead's hugeness. I'm sure drawing Daredevil or Batman is far more appealing for you to draw than the Hulk. :) I love it, though.
Ooh, birthday sketch?? :D :D :eager:

You're probably right about that. My male characters tend to trend toward the average size, though I do have a few big guys here and there.

When you said you wanted Jet involved in the shot and that you wanted to see the contrast in size, I came up with a completely different idea that's a little more elaborate, but the reason I didn't go with it for the commission is because it puts more emphasis on Jet than on Gilead. But it'll be fun as a bonus freebie. ;) I'll probably have it done tomorrow, at least in pencil.

I think Gilead's wife Synapse might take issue with that... ;)
