Michael Turner Tribute by Superchica Michael Turner Tribute by Superchica
This was meant to be done a LONG time ago, but you know...life happened and it got pushed back further then intended.

Both Chasen and I were and forever will be Michael Turner fans, as well as continue to be heavily inspired from his work as much as we were since the moment we laid eyes on his art.

I would never be able to draw something this breathtaking and so I asked Chasen if I could have the honor of coloring his Michael Turner tribute, to pay tribute to him as well.

So here it is, please enjoy.

Pencils: Chasen Grieshop :iconparticle9:

Thanks Chasen for being patient with me and giving me the oppurtunity to color this. Love you. :)

Wow. I didn't realize until now that he passed away. I'm the type that won't buy a comic book unless I love the art and I definitely have some Turner in my small comic collection. This is a well done tribute thank you for sharing.

Awesome job. I still can't believe M.Turner has passed away, only found out today after being absent from the comic world. M.Turner was my favorite American comic book artist, loved his works on Witchblade, Tomb Raider and Fathom, he'll be missed :'(

Yes, I still can't believe it either even though I've known since the day it happened in June, I just can't comprehend seeing no new artwork for him after a time.

I absolutely love your coloring of this Piece. It is one of, if not the best tribute to Michael that I have seen yet. A moving extremely touching collab. Well done ^^ :+favlove:. Michael left behind an incredible legacy, and inspired many artists. He showed us you could be "The Man" without being "The Jerk."

He will be missed, but I have to say this.

He never lost his battle. In many ways he won. He will live on forever in our hearts.

great job dudette :). Me and my bro wanted to do something like that for our comic Gateway when it hopefully comes out in October in like an inside page. I love the way Aspen is colored. ^_^ Me and my bro would love to try to do a collage piece with you and Chasen next year at the con if you two go again. ^_~ i don't know if you remember me... I sat with Chasen talked about coloring pieces at the Chicago con. Anyways... i think it'd be a lot of fun to just hang out and colab with some friends :) Hope to hear from you guys soon and great job!
