My, my, I haven't thought about this show in forever. I must find it on DVD now (English dub, thanks). Anyway, I'd have to say this is a wonderful tribute to a great show. His face actually looks like a real human being and not a piece of plastic like most CGI movies do. The reflections of his beak visor are also well-done without being needlessly flashy. Although the composition is simple, eh, sometimes that's just what you want to make in a piece and it works. And as a guy struggling to master digital coloring myself, I can also appreciate the subtle folds of cloth on Ace's collar. The devil's in the details and sometimes the details are a pain but always worth it. Great artwork, friend.
No problem, John! I'm trying to clean up my gallery and get it ready to weather some critiques of my own (replace all those lazy screengabs covering my story deviations with my own art for covers); I can only hope to be half as good as your artwork.
Haha I'm not really; As I tag myself as a Purveyor of Pure Awesomeness, it is not a title neither a description; but more likely 'Pure Awesomeness' is the goal that I constantly try to achieve in my works and in life, as a person and as an artist.
