Dark Judges by SebastianvonBuchwald Dark Judges by SebastianvonBuchwald

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?
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
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. :)

Awesome work there and the Dark judges are the best ever and is worthy of their own series and movie and not just Dredd but oh well that is my opinion xD Great work there!
I prefer black and white and is making Judge Death and such, and my costumes of them :D

I have the black and white version of this obviously. I'm just not a big fan of posting b&w stuff of things I know I'll be coloring.

Thanks to people letting the awesome Dredd movie fail at the box office. :icondoublefacepalmplz:
Also fantastic work! :thumbsup::D

Yeah, man. Urban pulled off a really great Dredd and, worst of all, they did say they would've used the Dark Judges in a sequel. Real bummer. :(

Well actually it was meant to have them in the third movie ;) Well me and the Dredd group have so far managed to get many names in our petition to make a Dredd 2 movie and it sounds like they might do the second movie if we go on like this, I hope you have signed it!
