Dark Judges by SebastianvonBuchwald Dark Judges by SebastianvonBuchwald
BLOG - TUMBLR - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS

These guys are so freakin' metal.

I did this specifically for London Super Comic Con and I'll be selling prints of this along with the original art there. Just one more drawing I want to finish for print purposes (hint: it's Kris Anka Psylocke and Storm) and I'll be off to the presses. The deadline is looming in but I'm feeling confident. 

But anyway, these are the Dark Judges: Death, Mortis, Fear and Fire. I penciled and inked it traditionally as I mentioned but colored it digitally. I quickly realized that my usual cartoony, hard-edged shading style wouldn't fit with these dudes and the line art I did so I went with something that was a bit more render-y. Worked out well, considering it's a not a method I use often. Seems a bit dark but I'll be sure to make print tests to make sure everything looks great on paper.

This is amazing!  They all seem to be missing or hiding one of their arms. Any particular reason for this?

That's an interesting observation. You can kinda see Mortis' arm behind Death a little but yeah, it wasn't intentional at all. With Fear I definitely wanted to do a Batman kinda thing where only one arm is exposed and the rest is covered by the cape. Death's natural arm placement would be below from where I chose to crop him so I guess, in hindsight, the only one where I probably should've worked the other arm in there somehow is Fire. He definitely seems like he's missing it as opposed to it being behind his body. :)
