You should really experiment more like this. It really shows your versatility as an artist!

If you look in my gallery, this is pretty much the norm for standard traditional work.
(standard being greyscale etc)

I only really do these when it's requested of me.

Pretty slick looking. Curious to see what you'd do with his original design- when Nova's legs would disappear into speedlines when he flys. Keep up the good work! :)

Good ol' bucket-head.

Dude, did you really manage to put that level of lighting and detail, using pencils, for an armor that is completely black??
That's something.

only thing pencil is baselines (which were levelled in PS to show you here otherwise it would've been too faint to see)

Great Nova Pic! Nicely done! I've put it on the pending list to enter in my features gallery at Nova Prime - the group for Nova and Marvel Cosmic fans - link below if anyone would like to visit and say hello and see more Nova fan art here at Deviant Art. It's also home to the fan produced Nova619 comic. Daz/UK
