Black Ice- one cold villain!

| November 30, 2012 | 0 Comments

Originally, I had a fiery, crucible type of character in mind for this, but when I reversed to b & w on the eyes he seemed a colder character. The contrast of black and white, and the harsh zig-zagging on his design just seemed to work from that point on. I apologize for the scan quality- the machine at work wants to turn scans into quicktime movies, so when you open the image it can’t be saved or converted. I had to do a screen capture, move that image into Publisher, resize, and convert to jpeg. Whew! The pains I go through for my art!
