Black Omen


My madness day 2010 submission. Hope it does well enough to win in the top three places. Please comment to let me know your thoughts about this image. Be sure to check out my other artwork :)

I never really make art with black as a prominent color. I have to say that this was one of the hardest things to paint as black material doesn't reflect much light...unless it's Vader's chrome armor lol

What a very interesting artwork. This character is shrouded in many mysteries. The dark use of colours also helped with the effect, and with only red that is the second prominent colour, as it is high-lighted in the BG and their eyes, we can assume that whatever they were or did, it was not pretty.

Hank killed the bad guys and then there was blood all over the place! Weeeeeeeeee!!!

Very dark

OKso here is somethinggood, it is dark but i guess that was the theme you were going for, dont get me wrong i like it and like the drawing and the colors is good, but im thinking that more effects like with some "GLOW"on the eyes especially, but with some effects it could have that extra touch, But anyways nice work here, gooddrawing, so keep up the good work.

Add some glow effects mainly in the eyesmaybe some shine areas.


Wow, this is a truly awesome picture if only because you create a whole new spin on the Madness series. I have seen tons of imitators, but this is one of the best. It mostly works because you show this wonderful realistic reprsentation of what Hank would look like. If there ever was a depiction that tried to be as close to real life as possible, this would be it. The proportions are especially fantastic. There's a lot going on if you look closely.

If you look at the bottom part, you can see some dead Madness guys. The red tints in this are simply flawless! I love how you see this big hulking guy looking awesome. It takes some really hard looking to even find the inner details of this guy. You are an artist good enough to do the task. No wonder this is popular!
