oh cool, thanks actually i haven't been to see dredd 3d i wonder if it's still running. might wait for the blu-ray and see it in 2d... hmm i noticed recently that mortis' pads are actually very similar to this.
Yes, it is similar. Was it intentional that the edges of the shoulder pad look like teeth (oh, and the bones on the pad mimic the portcullis on the helmet)? Nice touch if it was as it invokes to me Brian Bolland's original Judge Death character design (the rictus grin with big teeth.)
no, none of that was intentional haha. Hmm as I remember I was playing around with how to make the bones structural rather than superfluous in the pads, and then I came across this drawing by an artist called guy davis: [link] so I took influence from those ribcage pads.
Ah well, intentional or not your Judge Death is still really, really cool. If you ever get the opportunity (and this is pure wishful thinking on my part) I would love to see a complete set: Fire, Fear, Mortis and what the hell... Phobia, Nausea and Judge Kraken too.
I´m not exactly normal in what type of what I like Well the dark judges, Judge Dredd, Megatron, Shockwave, Lordi, Michael Schumacher, Jason, General M Bison, Rommel, Guderian, Patton, and many others but in comics it is mostly the dark judges which fits me perfectly in my taste
Well this looks fine mate. I find that gaining expressive colors is something you obtain while coloring a lot and looking at real life everyday colors and pictures. Once you start seeing how principle lights, secondary rebounding lights work and how color tones on distant and foreground objects react, everything starts to becomes instinctive.
awesome! was thinking of doing some old 2000ad characters myself - but i havent read it since aboiut 1998 - when everything started to go poo with it. figured noody would know what the hell i was on about! heheh
lol yea... i used to read 'em as a kid but stopped... been reading them a bit recently tho. one thing that strikes me is the very british storytelling- it doesn't follow hollywood moral rules, it's quite spiky, has an ever-present sense of anarchy, celebrates revenge without hangups, and likes to throw below-the-belt punches at unexpected moments. lol doesn't seem to be running many stories about the classic characters atm.
i believe that 2000ad et all was bought out by some shitty hollywood type corp after the dredd film, and it went down from there - only to be bought out as a failure some years back by a bunch of enthusiasts.
having seen what i have since then, theyve still not done anything good.
im just glad i have a whole set of back progs from the 80s / early 90s. re-readable until the apocalypse.
you should maybe do some 'fan comics' as free downloads - if you have the time and inclination
oh is that so? lol yeah i remember really enjoying things like missionary man, (i see you're a fan of frank quitely) i loved his art on that and shimura. one of my all time favs. oh yeah and there was devlin waugh with siku... that was pretty amazing. quite a few awesome artists in the early 90's
yeah the storylines atm are hit and miss i think. some i'm really enjoying but others are kinda one dimensional and lacking in flare.
ah yes - deviln waugh. that was a classic. halo jones, robohunter, durham red, strontium dog, killing time, rogue trooper - the list goes on and on...
its all like some bloody dream really - all the great stuff from bisley, ezquerra and all the others - i doubt any comic will ever have such an amount of hard quality art and writing again - particularly a 'compilation' piece like 2000ad
