For the last few years I have been working on the DC Universe online MMO with the super talented crew over at Wildstorm. Once in awhile we do some work that gets scrapped , this was such a piece. Maybe next time Lois.
Yeah it definitely looks great as is. Alot of people these days tend to go straight for the flashy digital effects on their artwork just because it's so widely available now, whether the artwork needs it or not. In this case, I really don't think it needs it. The artwork is great just the way it is. Everything from the colors to the perspective to the flat old school comic look with just a hint of `70s exploitation, is fantastic. Keep up the great work!
But still better to be flexible and have other art forms other than solid ones. Sorta like being a magician; can't always cast fire-based spells you know. A good mage can cast ice-based spells, among others, as well.
