“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

NEW YEAR OVERLOAD
Let's get the week's worth of images out of the way, shall we?
Here are some images I've done while I was away - toying around with the COPIC markers, some colored pencils and a tiny bit of PS/CS2. I just wanted to play with actual media again, yeah? That way I appreciate how much of a convenience PS truly is. Once you commit something to paper by way of markers, there's very little you can do to adjust or change the terrible, terrible color decisions you have made. I say this because I have personal, intimate knowledge of such decisions.
I must have done that Black Bolt and Medusa image four times (I really *do* appreciate PS a whole lot more now - when you have no idea how to use color, it's a life saver). The image of the girl on the Vespa was for a birthday present for a dear friend of mine - we call that her 'superhero' costume. Okay, more later.
