Wow. I really like that.

Ever read Scud The Disposable Assassin?

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Awesome work as usual Eric!

  I like how you used a different style than your previous piece to differentiate which aspect of the written Question you are portraying...yet here you didn't simply emulate the exact style of that era's associated artist. 

I look forward to seeing your next illustration.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Very cool, here are some of my rough sketches.

This one is going to be painted:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v414/chicopancakes/scan0001.jpg

This one I stole the idea from a film noir poster (bonus points to anyone who can name it). I want to paint this one as well but it could work digitally colored:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v414/chicopancakes/scan0002.jpg

This one is the one I'm having the most trouble with, I keep playing around with his body mass but nothing clicks. I want him hunched over but not so muscular... anyway:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v414/chicopancakes/scan0003.jpg
Yeah that one is not very good but it's just a sketch! heh...heh....ok back to work.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Here's a color mock up I threw together to act as a guide for myself while I do the real thing...

oh and here's another stab at the horrific one from my last post.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Ran into trouble with my gauche...so I'm stuck for the moment. However I'm almost done with my first page (just need to touch it up in photoshop). Sorry for the delays...but because I have school and a art job my time to do these pieces is very limited.

I totally understand, I was just messing with you when I saw your last post was the 16th, then nothing smile

Take your time, we're not going anywhere.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

j3h and I collaborated on one of my lines. It's pretty rad, if I do say so myself, although I'd love for him to have the honors of unveiling it.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Thanks Flash 8)
I have to admit, this came together really fast...

Here's
"A non-tempered weapon struggling to remain sheathed."
by Flash1087 & j3h

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d68/j3h/SuperHeroes%20other/flashQuestionl.jpg

We used Flash1087's costume pics from the gallery here and touched them up, made them look harried, flipped one, and created the light colored coat in the "grabbing" frame to keep continuity.

After making it, I realized I made it sideways to the dimentions we set earlier in the thread...so when it gets lettered, it will need a 90 degree turn.

As it is, it can be used as a wallpaper.  big_smile

Flash, I'm still interested in doing another version or a new one if you take updated shots of your costume.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Finally....

"Who Am I?"

I can't choose between these two...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v414/chicopancakes/who.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v414/chicopancakes/who2.jpg

The difference is the smoke placement.


Also if you have anything to say about how it looks please do because I did this using something I haven't tried in a long time.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Additionally those are without my signature (just realized this) so once there is a decision on which one should be used, I will add it.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

I like the second one better, the fist looks more like part of his hand and less like part of the background. Either way, though, that's a great picture.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

I too am torn between the two...it makes sence that Q in enveloped in the smoke (the first pic), but you lose the hand's details. I like the clarity in the second pic, but the smoke seems more accurate in the first.

Re-looking at them again, I think I'm leaning towards the second as well.

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Finally! I finished another page(though I have no clue how to photograph this....). Once take a picture of it that I'm happy with, I'm going to fiddle around with the colors (the yellow in it has a strange green tint that I need to get rid of).

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Is it too late to try to do one of these?

Also, while I'm getting better at sketching, I sincerely doubt my abilities to ink, so would it be possible to post up the black & whites to have someone ink?

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

Not at all...Please do contribute! cool

And don't worry about pencils vs inked...I'm sure someone here can step up to the task if need be.

here's the original "claimed!" post bumped back for easy reference to wh has done/or is working on (in theory anyway) wink

the official CLAIMED! post...

Question the Existential Splash  (cover)

I am a man with no face.   (claimed by "ERIC")

A man who’s past is lost like a puff of smoke.

For the public, I am a journalist.   (completed by "ERIC")

A sounding board of right and wrong.
 
To some, I am an idealist.
 
I am a voice to un-muttered philosophies.

I am a faceless visage of hope and justice.
 
I am violence.

A non-tempered weapon struggling to remain sheathed.   (completed by "FLASH1087" & "j3h")

To my allies, I am a crack pot.   (claimed by "FLASH1087")

A truth seeker wound too tight.   (claimed by "?")

Some envision me as something mystic.

A urban shaman listening to the city’s pleas.   (claimed by "ERIC")

To most, I am an annoyance...

To those who partner with me,  (completed by "j3h")

And to those we fight.

I am a victim.

A victim of my lack of origin.

A victim of the tobacco industry's statistics.

A victim of nature’s cruel fate.

Who am I?

With a touch of Rodor’s gas,

I am the Question.   (claimed by "?")

make the art 768 wide X 1024 high (pixels) in jpg or bitmat format
all pages will be lettered after they are submitted to keep clarity and consistancy (in case project is resized as well)

I think I can safely say for all of us that we look forward to seeing your creation!

and ?, I'm definately looking forward for your newest!

Re: Who is the Question? - Sequential Group Art Project

While it does take me forever to turn these out (though I already have a idea for the final one....), it shouldn't take more than one night for me to ink something....so, I'd be happy to ink for you. PM or email me the images when you can and I'll send you back a reply with any questions I may have.

Once I'm finished I'll send you what I've done (or just post it here...).

Hope that helps!
