Omega Red by ChristopherStevens Omega Red by ChristopherStevens
Another first for me. I only know him from a short storyline that Jim Lee did in the second X Men series, but there seems to be a lot of fans, so he must've come back for more. This is based on his original Lee design with some subtle changes on my part.

Prismacolor marker, white paint and color pencil on bristol

Это просто фантастика! Так динамично. Этот арт производит просто невероятное впечатление! Простите, что на русском, просто я не могу выразить такой восторг на не родном не языке. <333

Looking back through some old FAVS, and still blown away by your worl Chris. I nohis this peice looks alittle "lighter" than the rest. Did you stick with lighter shades of Gray tones (which ones), or is it the scan?

Thanks, Karl. I think this one's light because of the snow. I was going for the winter cold look and figured it would be more effective with a lot of white and not as much contrast. I remember being pretty happy with it back then. Like all of my old pieces though, its a lot harder to look at now.

I am guessing the gray helps the colorist? I only use black and white on my book but always wanted to use gray tone. I have been told not to use gray. What is the run down on this? Why do you do it?

These aren't for publication. Just private commissions. But, you can definitely add color to greyscale artwork. Alex Ross, Travis Charest, Adi Granov and a bunch of others do it. In my case, I prefer hand done artwork and my coloring skills are lacking, so greyscale is a nice in between.

An email? I dunno. I did however find you one the statue forum website. I saw a few pieces I don't recall seeing here on DA. Quite a treat. Just waiting till you next list opens. I'm so on it! Take it easy Chris.
