Nice diversity of styles, lighting, and moods. Very nice coloring.

I wonder in the first image if the blues at the top of the hood are not starting to blow-out to the point they will print more green than blue. You might check in CMYK preview mode just to be safe.

Thanks a lot Brian coming from you it definitely means a lot.
The thing about the blue cape is a good point I forgot that yellow and blue mix into green.
But I sent the final version in cmyk and it looked borederline ok, though if my monitor isnt calibrated perfectly it could happen =(
I hope not.


So yeah here is a little update.
I don´t usually try to color Bachalo´s lines because I find it very hard to find a good mix of keeping it sublte and ad fx without either make it look boring or ruin the piece.
But I felt brave enough last nite and this is what came out.

Boom (it would be great to know your real name),

You seem like you have a solid approach to what you do, but the first thing that jumps out at me is that everything, no matter it's depth in the picture, seems to have the same saturation/highlight strength (with the exception of the Wolverine in the Woods piece). This really flattens out the picture. With the Bachalo work I don't understand the need for the spotlight you added or the strong light from outside. While this might add drama it appears to go against everything that Chris and Tim has put in the lines. The primary light is actually coming from in front of the woman with the knives, slightly above her. There some hint on the guys shoulders of a secondary light from the window, but not much.

I like that you are not afraid to add your own thing to the pieces and that your colors really "pop", but I think you might benefit from paying closer attention to the line work and work a little bit more on mood and depth of field.

Hey Marc my Real name is Nicolas =)

thanks for the crit about the glow thing from the back.
I kind of agree and think it might be a little bit overdone but like you said the main light source is coming from the top and if you look at the figures alone I think its pretty obvious that the light is coming from the top e.G. the girls belly.

Anyways I see what you mean and I think your right about the saturation issue in my works I always have a hard time to push something out of focus by making it les saturated.
I ll try to be a little braver when it comes to this =)

So yeah thanks again its much appreciated =)

In the Spidey, Green Goblin and Black Cat one...is her hair blonde or is it white and the yellow light is making it appear that way?

Her hair is supposed to be white.

It's just a little distracting because as I look at it all I think about is how it isn't white.

Yeah her hair is supposed to be white, but I want to address another problem I see with this one. Right now all three characters are colored like they are on the same plane of existence. That would make the Goblin about 50 feet tall. Now we all know that he's not and it looks like he's supposed to be a meanacing ghost in the background of the image to me. So, I took 5 minutes and did a quick overpaint.
