The shading is well done and I can't help but that menacing jaw remind me of the Mouth of Sauron.

(it contains a spoiler but at the same time it's sorta not a spoiler because ..well.. things  take a diff turn after this scene etc)

This is just... neat. If they ever do a sequel to DREDD 3D featuring the Dark Judges this is exactly how I would want Judge Death to look. Again... neat.

oh cool, thanks :D 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.
Reply
:iconbobbygaga:
bobbygaga Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
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.)

KeanKennedy Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012   General Artist
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 :P
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 :)

Great job! I like the lights and the shadow work on the blue leather (and especially the boney pads) and the fact that you whitened out the background arm and leg:thumbsup:.

thanks a lot dude. i was pleased with the rendering on this, although i feel that my use of colour is still too conservative, and i'd like it to be more expressive.
Reply

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.

KeanKennedy Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2011   General Artist
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.

:iconcyrus-crashtest:
cyrus-crashtest Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2011
yeah -i agree totally.

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.

heheh

you should maybe do some 'fan comics' as free downloads - if you have the time and inclination
