@TheRealDetectiveChimp @Viciousdark @biff_pow thanks for the kind words! :blush: Trying to do the demon some justice :+1:

Same :sob: and the months almost over…womp
Your piece is lovely! Very clean. And the goggles look amazing.

@Batwing52 like this work especially the chess piece and the coloring is great too with hints of shading. But I ah dont know who that is? Royal flush gang member??

@TheRealDetectiveChimp love this. I just started reading JL dark with the chimp so I get some of the choices i.e the helmet and the drinking problem. I’m starting to enjoy this character! Well done man.

@ImpulseMaxMercury nice dude. I liked that you merged two character designs and the wings are nice. Is that Bronx hes standing on by the by?? :+1:

Well, I suppose I can give it away. It’s not really a secret, after all. It’s a helmet off one of the Knights from the original ‘80s Checkmate series.

Looks amazing! Kind of feels like Mike Mignola by way of Ben Templesmith.

No worries. It’s fairly obscure, so I don’t imagine a lot of people would get the reference without the chess piece. Anyway, thanks for the kind words on the coloring and shading! I don’t really work with professional art supplies so that kind of thing isn’t always my strong suit. I usually just leave my drawings in black and white.

Thanks for the compliments!
And yes that’s Bronx he is standing on. Of course now that I think about it, Batman mostly went out at night so Bronx would not be stone but I still liked the look

Thank you :blush: @jsmsiggy, I’m glad you like it. I gotta get out and make copies of my art don’t worry I’m gonna be doing something where I’m gonna be giving away a copy of a bunch of different art pieces I’ve done . I have to figure how I’m going to do it but you’ll definitely know when it’s gonna happen.

@Viciousdark that picture was amazing! I could feel the power emanating from the scene and it looked like it just came out of a splash page in a comic book. When I draw comic book characters they don’t come close to looking like that. Great job

@stefanie.m the little Etrigan was such a cutie! He’s so adorable for a rhyming demon from Hell, maybe he spouts nursery rhymes?
The assortment of weapons and King Shark reminds me of when I put a lot of obscure items in my pictures. I like it as without references I was trying to guess which is fun

@TheRealDetectiveChimp I love the drawing! It really captures the chimp’s personality and I like the addition of the background objects. Sometimes animals can be tough to pull off but he looks good!

@Broken-Knight I really like the detail in the Talon drawing! It looks so much like the reference picture and the inking of it really makes it pop. I could not tell which was which. Really cool!

@Batwing52 another person going for the obscure? I love it. I knew it had something to do with Checkmate but beyond that I was lost. Did you know of the character off hand or did you have to look up references? I usually try to put some obscure items into my drawings but I usually need reference because my memory may think of it but not exact how it looked. Great job!

Thank you :blush: @ImpulseMaxMercury, just years of drawing. Never stop practicing, I try to make something everyday even if it’s small of simple just to keep me practicing something. But your art is awesome keep it up.

Well, I knew the ‘80s Checkmate series and liked it, but I hadn’t revisited it in a bit. I wanted to do something spy related, and that’s where my mind went. I did have to look up the mask shape and the chess piece logo for reference, though.
