Young Avengers by ChristopherStevens Young Avengers by ChristopherStevens
This was a commission for the one and only Jim Cheung, so it was both awesome and intimidating. It's the second time I've been commissioned to do characters that the client designed and it can be nerve wracking. The first being the Conquest for Ryan Ottley. You look at the references and think "Damn man, how am I going to make it look anywhere near as badass?!" I decided I can't so I just do the best version of these guys I can and hope they don't hate it. So far so good...or they're both being kind..either way, Jim seemed happy and that makes me happy.

Prismacolor, white paint, color pencil on vellum bristol

Your work simply rocks socks!! It must be terribly flattering to have the character's creator commission you; says a lot about your skill set.

One day, I will add on of yours to my collection. One day...

Thanks. No blender. I hate those things. They just make everything bleed and mush around.

Interesting. I am currently giving Prismacolor markers a try and not having the best of luck. Practice practice I guess :)
