Just went over my original Black and White artwork to add the red, just for the people that I said I was going to add colour to it ;)

Please view fullsize or download to see full detail :)

Sin City style :D

To do this, I used my original black and white art on a new layer, set it to multiply, and added the red on the layer under it. I like this version more than my original one now, which is here
and concept here

Thank you very much again. Glad you're still interested in my pics :)
Although, I just sorted out some unwanted attention with this one. Just got off the phone to some guy that was making money from selling it on ebay.
:frustrated:
Think I've sorted it though. He probably just thought he could get away with it and that the original artist would never find out, and then manage to track him down too :ninja:
:D

WOW... Such a shame that people have to go so low as to do this... But I'm so happy for you that you've gotten sorted out, and that you get that compensation he took from you! :huggle:


And I'm extremely sorry for the late reply; hoping that I'm not stirring up a bees nest here by doing that. :blush:

:heart:

DAMMIT!!!

Thank you very much for bringing it up.
Hmmm... Now, what to do about it.

I'm not going to report it just yet...
I'll see what I'm going to do about it first.
I'm going to have a word with ebay aswell.

Thanks again

The red draws attention to the helmet which is the core source of the character's power and charisma, being as he never takes it off. It's also a dangerous colour. Restricting the colours often helps add power because the garishness can distract.

This IS Dredd.

:) Thank you very much for the in depth look on this one :)

He was even intimidating me just painting the thing up :D
Mainly because I had no idea if it was going to come out the way I had it in my head. THAT was Dredd :D

In the end, it turned out to be a joy to work on. :)
