Hey people. I am pretty new here. Like my buddy Vashy, I was also did a Thundercats piece. The original is huge- 32 x 17, but I reduced it down out of respect for your modems. All comments are welcomed.

Pretty cool, pretty cool....I dig the design elements.

A little more attention to color balance would probably "glue" the elements together better.

I wouldn't mind seeing a large version.

Got any more of these to post? Its nice to see different approaches like this!

Thanks for the comments.
You figure after 9 years of coloring that color wouldn't be my weak spot.
Steve: what do you recommend for better color balance?

Um. did you guys want to see a large resolution of the whole image or the figure?

well, I would like to see a close up of all the parts. its such a big ratio that
we don't get to see much of the details. like, I don't know what that
blue thing shes sitting on is. or the faces in the corner... break it up into 3 pieces, maybe.

Forgive the size.
I might get in trouble for this.
It contains real articles on women who kill men Boyfriends/ husbands)

One article is about Laura Bush who killed her boyfriend when she was a teenager.
The other stories are pretty ridiculous, but all are real.

DANG! From what you wrote, it sounded like she'd murdered him, not that he died in a car accident. I'm guessing that you only included Laura Bush for pure shock value, since every other woman in your piece is guilty of murder.

Beautiful artwork, though. :)

Who knew Michael Douglas was dead? or that he drove a doorless jeep... or didn't wear his seatbelt.

Somethine about the bright red on the dark green doesn't appeal to the eye, maybe darken the red or create a small gap around the red to reduce the contrast? Still nice piece :)

What colors do you suggest? Sometimes I wonder if I am colorblind!

what I want to know is why a chick who runs all day is wearing high heels.
