Maxx by ChristopherStevens Maxx by ChristopherStevens
Still learning things about markers every time I work. Such as a saturation limit. Especially if you work with Prismacolor, the black ink is a bit different from every other ink. At some point, if you layer it too much, it won't be absorbed by the paper any more and you get streaks like you see here. from anywhere other than straight on, the light doesnt catch it, but it's nicely visible here in the scan. Things like that drive me bananna sandwich.

Anyways, a 90's classic created by the beast known as Sam Kieth. I always wanted to take a crack at him, so this was a cool one to work on.

Prismacolor cool grey and white paint on vellum bristol board.

Unreal! very nice. Best rendition of this charcter since Kieth's original art!

I like the look of the claws--dare I say it's better than Sam's version, IMO.

Marvelous depiction of a thoroughly underrated comic book character.

man, outside of sam himself, this could be the most awesome take on the maxx i've ever seen.
i guess i'm not quite sure about what type of prismacolor you're using.
i think of prismacolor as color pencils.
you seem to be referring to a type of ink. i'm not familiar with a prismacolor ink i guess.
and i've used quite alot of inks.

this is massively badass.
