This builds very nicely from a technical point of view - a great tonal exercise. As a composition, however, it has no definite primary focal point or center of interest. Don't know if that's to be at the top or the bottom - its ambiguous. If it's at the top, at the apex of the mound, then an accent of contrast would help to decide it (silhouetted sword and figure?). In any event, it is still very nice work and it would probably help my understanding to see it in context.

Thank you -- knowing how it would be coloured I trusted the focal point would remain at the top of the triangle composition. Here's the final page [link]

Oh! There you go!
I only see what's in front of me at the time. I don't count on the work being a team effort with others, like colorists, to play a part.

I notice how some pencilers and inkers rely heavily on that team to make important decisions about contrast and tone. Don't know how much of this is currently dictated by the industry. In any event, your work stands on its own, so this one fooled me. Oh! well.

Thanks for explaining. I appreciate it. (It's sad when one is just so happy he didn't piss off the artist!)

No worries.

I knew the colour artist going in, so I had a good idea what he'd do!

That has the blessed stench of "The Studio" from the 70s. Love that killer detail, Richard.

Thanks so much -- I was trying to get a little Buscema/Alcala vibe going too.
