Darkseid by butones Darkseid by butones
I saw his image on a comic magazine and for the next 5 days after that my mind keeps telling me that I want to draw him for my art agent next... Man he does have very strange powers....

Went loose with the bg... finger was swollen and painfull since this was done sporadically in between 2 pages of Spawn within a day -__-

great pencil work on this! it looks really great! I think darkseid looks best when he looks really ripped and big like this.

Awesome work man! The lighter pencils on his hand, is that a different lead or do you just go lighter pressure?

Awesome O.o

I love the way you play with lines weight and the shadowing. I should learn a lot from that.

What kind of pencils do you use? Do you usenon-photo blue or work only with the black pencils? Don't worry if you cannot answer, I know how busy is an artist life, lol, and I was just feeling curious about ^^

no, just regular hb-2h pencils : ) i usually avoi dhb though.. personal preference : p hehe...

:icontoramarusama:
Toramarusama Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2007   Digital Artist
Haha, I do prefer harder pencils too (from 2h to 5h for the structures of the drawing). I don't like to use hb, it makes me feel like the drawings are dirty of something.

One more question (again you don't have to answer if you cannot): Are you the same Philip Tan that made the pencils for Taleweaver? If it is you, you have improved a lot since then. I'd love to improve that way myself ^^

Thanks for your answer. ^^

Oh, I almost forgot something: Happy New Year!!! Hope you have a great 2007. ^^

Yes, I remembered. I really liked Taleweaver. It had a nice story and good artwork with a very cool oriental feeling. But now your art is just awesome O.o. If I didn't read your name I could never say that you were the same artist. I hope your Spawn issues to be published soon here in Spain ^^

Oh, it's been a long time since you wrote that comment but couldn't answer before.

After speaking about it I went to my usual comic store and took a look to the last Spawn book (now in Spain we only have the tradepaperbacks) and it was yours!!! Haven't noticed that before makes evident that I am not an usual reader of the series u.uU (I got tired a long time ago, although I liked it on the beginning). I was very pleased to have the chance to take a look to some sequentials (you don't have any in your gallery ). I have to take a better look to that, but I liked what I saw, although there's the feeling that something is missing when you see the colored versions after having seen the pencils (i'm talking about a few covers). I always like the pencils a lot more than the inked or colored versions ^^.

Very nice job, keep on rocking ^^
