Aspen Matthews by Forty-Fathoms Aspen Matthews by Forty-Fathoms
Well, I've been working on this one forever. You can just ask *Shigdioxin. You would think it would be the hair. Well, the preliminary was a real b!tch, but it was all the shading and making it look as smooth as possible that was proven to be the most difficult. Once again, because it hates me, my scanner refused to show the smaller details in the hair and face, but it's all I have to work with. Originally by CV, I really want to change things up and give some extra umph! to the piece, you know add my own spin.

Anywhoo, I really like the style of this picture, and I'm trying to expand my skill in shading.

Once again, comments are always welcome! :]

Time: Too long. ;]
Utensil(s) Used: .7mm mechincal pencil, q-tips for shading
Listening to: "Give A Little More" - Maroon 5

Fathom is the name of the comic and the comic is surrounded by the character, Aspen Mathews.

That's what I thought I read somewhere onece but wanted to double check for my own personal storehouse of trivia! My local geek friends and I are always trying to stup the other with trick comic or movie questions like that.

It's fine. Some people aren't familiar with the Top Cow / Aspen universe as those with the DC and Marvel. I personally care for TC and Aspen myself. Better story lines in my personal opinion.

Glad I could help. :D
