THUNDERBOLTS 148 Page 18 by DeclanShalvey THUNDERBOLTS 148 Page 18 by DeclanShalvey
Splash page. this took me quite a while to get right. Really glad i composed it so that the arch of the wall framed the 2 floating characters and the solid black within the arc added much needed depth. When there's so much information in a page, i try keep things clear by establishing a solid black area. A solid white area too, if possible, which is why i left the sewer water at the bottom right. Realistically, it should really have been mainly black, with the strong light source, but i felt i needed an area of solid white to balance the black.

Which won't really matter when it's coloured I just realized as i type this.

D-'Oh!

Awesome work! I've avoided looking at the other pages cause I'm looking forward to the book but couldn't resist this one. Epic.

Awesome set-up Declan. Thunder-bolts versus the Hand, very cool. I love the splash work a the top of the page, Ghost looks awesome and the detail is just incredible.

The brick-work on the wall and the contrast with the characters...the angle...

This is brillo stuff Declan.

Cheers Dan; once i figured out to us brickwork the way i needed to, the whole page fell into place. Believe it or not, the whole page depended on it.
