Unfathomable by Forty-Fathoms Unfathomable by Forty-Fathoms
(Dumb title name, I know, don't judge me.) My goodness, I spent so long on this picture and I bet you weren't expecting to see another picture from me anytime soon, huh and colored 'to boot! I really have been wanting to color again and the scanner didn't screw up the picture too much this time. I got myself some Prismacolor pencils finally and I've been having a blast with them.

Originally by the late Michael Turner, I wanted to redraw the picture in my own style and color it the way I want it to look like, or at least, sort of look like. It's a very old piece of Aspen Matthews from Fathom, but I still love it all the same and RIP Mike. :[ (I've also had this picture sitting on my desk for about three years now. I know, shocking! :P)

On a happier note, please tell me what you think. I love feedback from all of you and it always makes my day, or night, depending when I'm on =p

Utensil(s) Used: .7mm mechanical pencil, 2B, HB graphite pencils, Prismacolor pencils.
Time: Roughly 5-6 hours approx.

Awh, thanks! I think so too, it took forever though. I had the picture sitting on my desk for around three years before picking it up again and doing something with it. Thanks again!

The colours are perfect :) But...what is she, water? She looks like water, but I'm not familiar with her I'm afraid :-P

It's okay, not many people are. Her name is Aspen Matthews from the comic Fathom and she has the ability to use water to whatever she wants and she also has the ability to change into water at any given time and yet keep her human like shape at the same time if desired. Glad you like it! :)

Yes, Aspen Matthews is quite interesting. Turning into water whenever you want but still look human-like is very interesting. Thank you for the comment! :)

Fathom is now woened by Aspen comics. Since Michael Turner's death, a new artist has taken over. Turner also created Soulfire and that has been take over as well by Aspen comics. Both comics are still up and running. :]

Thank you! :)

I like the title. However, if this piece of artwork is to depict someone I am not sure who. But I am not a know it all. I don't even know who Michael Turner is, God rest his soul. I think you should do more artwork that stray from your usual stuff. This certainly falls into that category.

If you don't know how Michael Turner is, you won't know his characters, so that is why you're not sure who it is. This is Aspen Matthews from the comic, Fathom. She has (one of her powers) that she can change to completely water at any time. But still retain her human shape if desired.

What do you think this art piece falls into (category wise)?

:iconsaber4734:
saber4734 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well obviously it would fall into comic related. But not your traditional comic related art like say Poison Ivy would fall into. And seeing as how your gallery consists of a lot of Tomb Raider stuff I still think this is different than your usual stuff.

I like the title. Maybe just "Unfathomable" would work better. Still, this is a gorgeous piece. The whole water-entity effect you used on Aspen looks gorgeous here. The colours are very vibrant yet calming, and she's got a nice expression going too. Happy new year Sarah, keep drawing just like this.

Some people aren't too familiar with the comic, "Fathom" rather than who Aspen Matthews is. So that's why I put both in. Kind of ironic because of my username too. =p Thank you very much. I tried my best. I don't color that often, but I might start to do more coloring if this gets enough positive feedback. :) Thank you.
