homage: CRIMSON by theCHAMBA homage: CRIMSON by theCHAMBA

here it is.. i likes it... i likes it alot..

i've been holdin out on workin on this.. dunno why.. but yeh.. it's done..

Aswell as Campbell and Mad! being influences to me.. Ramos was also a major influence on me.. and to show full homage, i even adopted his 'thick eyebrows' for this piece.. ehe..

yeh, i think i did justice to the character of Crimson.. well i hope i did anyway..
there's 13 characters here... wanted to do more, but yeh.. whatever.. 13's enough..

to see the lineart click this [link]

this is the '3rd artist' installment of the 'Homage' series...

yeh.. that 'honourable mentiones' piece was jst that.. more of a side-piece.. still part of the series, but not a major part.. obviously..

anyway.. here are the previous installments of the 'homage' series

homage 01 'J.Scott Campbell - Wildsiderz' - [link]
homage 02 'J.Scott Campbell -' - [link]
homage 03 'Joe Madureira - Battle Chasers' - [link]
homage 04 'Joe Madureira - MAD!.pt.02' - [link]
homage 05 'Honourable Mentions - [link]

anyway... who's next.... hmm.. ah'dun even kno yet...

it's prolly either Jim Lee and Chris Bachalo(possibly) .......... or a possible 'Ramos pt.02' maybe....

-----SIDE NOTE------
few days left in me contest... for more info check me journal.

My art teacher brought a few books (don't know if you'd call them that, but whatever) to school because of my makeup phase, saying I reminded him of one of the characters (Joe, I believe) and I really want to start reading this but I have no idea where to get it! You're amazing, though! XD

This is awesome! This comic actually got me interested in drawing. I don't know what I'd be doing if I hadn't picked it up at the grocery store. And I had the pleasure of actually meeting Oscar Pinto(one of the original creators of this comic) a few years ago. That was fun and I learned alot of helpful drawing tips from him. Good job on the homage!

Loved the Crimson series, though the end was very confusing. Very comprehensive character choice with composition relating connections.
