The second installment in the series. Much fun was had with this one. Can't believe this my 50th post. Sheesh.

Nice piece, although I kinda like the layout of the rough better as the two side are looking directly at each other. Gives the scene more intensity.

Love the colors and the general feel. Looks like you're having a lot of fun with this series.

Draz - thanks man

Benton - I agree the rough has the characters interacting more , but I was a touch conflicted , because I also wanted to show more of the main character's face. Thanks for stopping by :)

that is *gorgeous*

the balance of angles, shades, shadows.... it really works beautifully.

Nice one - & great to see the process

R.Dress said...

Very cool!!!

Yeah the final feels much more about the main character Vs the dudes at the table. Really draws you into the story with the way you handled the light against his face.

Very nice series! The two illos make me curious about the characters and the stories behind. In this one I do prefer the final version, I feel more tension between the characters.
