Evan "Doc" Shaner said...

Beautiful work, Nathan. The black and white is really good, which I think is a large part of why the colored one looks so great. Fantastic palette.

Ron Salas said...

Awesome piece, Nathan! A real study of contrasts.
I love the b&w version as well but I actually prefer the coloured version just because it gives you a better sense of atmosphere.

Declan Shalvey said...

Me too, i think i prefer the coloured version as you really did something interesting with the light-source that isn't in the black and whit version.

Fair play man.

BEE-U-T-FUL sculpted coloring there, almost ala moebius (it's a compliment :D)
Love it!

Cheers,

Beautiful stuff, Nathan - you really nailed the louche, black-hearted bastard.

And I agree about the colours - they're great!

Mitch Gerads said...

Awesome Nathan, you continue to be a master of the understated moment.

I also agree with Evan, the colors work so well because the black and white is so solid.
