MM Core- Combat by ChristopherStevens MM Core- Combat by ChristopherStevens
Original rough and final penciled line art for a full page illo in the Mutants & Masterminds 2nd edition core rulebook. Planning a scene with so many characters in action and making sure it's not just a mess can be quite a chore.

Daily Deviation

I chose this piece over the finished colored version because MM Core- Combat is a beautiful demonstration of how the mind of a comic book artist works. Given, not all of us have a knack for placement quite like *chriss2d does! It's chaos with a method to the madness that's almost graceful... like a dance. Be sure to check out the finished piece along with the rest of *chriss2d's impressive gallery! ( Featured by y2jenn )

Wow, what a great response:) Thank you guys and thank you y2jenn.

These types of shots are always a bit of a challenge. I tend to treat them as one on ones. I focus on each pair that are fighting and figure out what each will be doing and just try to work it all in until it sorta fits. What I like about these scenes is that there's not alot of hard and fast rules for doing them. You can just have fun with them and try to come up with something that's fun for the readers to look at.

Thanks again for all the great feedback
