very jae lee I like the background better than the fig.
I couldn't help noticing how child-like his face is. Intentional? Because he's got some pretty heavy hair on his forearms and chest. I mean the character himself occupies some space in between -- the emotions and thought process of a simple child (depending, of course, on what story-arc you're reading), but a physique of ultimate manliness (ridiculously so). What considerations did you put into the character when drawing him?

I agree with Mr. James--very Jae Lee, overall very nice. I love those cityscape backgrounds you do. Grounds his big green butt very well.I think it has a few anatomical issues I've tried to improve on a little. He just looke a little wimpy in the shoulders to me. and I added a little subtle edge-lighting to help define him a little more. Hope this helps. Or I'm full of crap and you can ignore me. It's all good.

I really like the sky, but it's bleeding into your forground.
You've combined two of my favorite things: the incredible hulk and telephone poles
Chris Noeth-thanks a lot..glad you dig it!! ^__^'
Scoot James- yea..the inking kinda covered some of the anatomy I had penciled in originally....."slap myself".....that's what happens when you don't follow the initial drawing..hehe
Mr Right-well....there was very little thought behind it , quite honestly. I was going for a teen HULK, then got carreid away drawing the hairy forearms (I love doing hairy forearms)...and it sorta turned into this mess..hehe.
Crawdad Jones-thanks for taking the time to make the corrections.....I used a Hulk ty as reference (was hilding a flashlight for the lighting)....that's why I got a bit carried away on the anatomy.....i actually had his whole body rendered in pencil, but decided to cover most of it with black ink...I'm really getting into these graphic (Frank Miller-esque.....or ok...ok....Jae Lee- esque) type of illustrations.....thanks for checking in. More to come soon
I may be thinking the shoulder is more forward than you intended, just guessing from position of the bicep. Swept back is cooler, more dynamic. I guess I would just expect to see more of his massive green teats if that's the case. But the vast majority is typically kick-arse!
the problem is that his waist is originally turned, making his right arm lean forward..unfortunately one cannot see any of that coz I covered it all up with the darn inks.....slap me next time you see me to remind me of my bad inking.....sigh.....hahahaha O__O
i think the inking is much stronger than the colors, maybe check out how richard isonave is coloring jae lee's upcomic work in the stephen king dark tower book, the stong shadows from jae lee and isonaves coloring really look great together, good luck
the uncolored is as said stronger. Infact the ink only one is quite the exelent, while the coloring is a bit lacking. I'd personaly like to se it in more of the style that the hellboy+lobster johnson pic in FF section is colored. Check it out. More earthy colors and no efects n sky. Just a personal request.
mikerion22my god..that jae Lee piece is beautifull........I'm so ashamed having posted my crap now..haha.You're right...the coloring killed it for me....it's the result of lotsa frustration..hehehe...thanks for checking in and sharing jae Lee's wonderfull work.
Orifice After seeing that Jae Lee piece.....I must say I feel like a baby that just spoke its first words....and there he is writing them masterpiece novels..hahaha....thanks for the crit buddy! And yea.....the hellboy piece....is kickass---yupp yupp
well i love it. Sean Phillips and Jae lee combined for me.. Rocks!
Check my sketchbook if you're bored
And my blog!
a bold purple sunset would make the hulk really stand out...your inking is bold so your colouring should be too.
(purple pants vs. green skin is a classic hulk colour combo...transfer it to the sky!)

but on the same idea, a red or orange sky would visually vibrate more when contrasting with green skin.Originally Posted by kingrobota bold purple sunset would make the hulk really stand out...your inking is bold so your colouring should be too.
