The Riddler by SeanE The Riddler by SeanE
This one was buckets of fun because I was trying all sorts of new things in it. First off the lightsource coming down from directly on top is something I haven't tried before and I was also using layer masks of colour and changing the layer modes (mostly to saturation with a red-tan mask) to see what would happen. That's how I go the brassy/gold look to the cane and washed out the intensity of the skintones.

I LOVE the loose feel of your style! Heh, normally I don't like renditions of Mr. Nygma quite like this - but I truly have a fondness for this one. ^^

His joints look a little bit too stylized, I think. I can't quite imagine the character on the same page as Batman. I like the expression, though.

I thought I had commented on this! Man, I'm such a big Eddie fan and there just isn't enough art of him about! This is so fantastically stylistic and the coloring is just really slick. That lighting and the gold's shine really give the image a lot as well. Really, this is one of (if not my number one) favorite Riddler artworks. It makes me want to lick my screen.

I can't believe no one has commented on this! I clicked on it expecting it to have about 100+ comments x.x people don't know what they're missing because this is wonderfully drawn [Kudos to Jon] and beautifully coloured, I don't know why people don't appreciate a good colourist more because you guys really bring the art to life!
Anyway, I love how you coloured this - the shading and highlighting looks so smooth and natural yet its also slightly stylised so it works very well with the cartoony style of the drawing.
You have my total respect and this definetly deserves a fav!
