sophie's choice 2

so... reaper liked the bottom pose, but i thought it looked too stiff. so after a bazillion redraws, here is the final comp, and rough colors. i know it's odd, but i'm particularly proud of the inking on the bike -- everything except the tires was inked freehand, a fun exercise.

Oh crap! I want one! ...But, demon-spawn biker-chicks are just never into me.

Seriously though, this is great! Hard to believe those smooth bike inks are freehand.

I love the flat colors too. The shades of line knock outs you used really gives the feeling of volume without any overly complicated shading.

The whole thing is amazing.
