Avengers Assemble by sdowner Avengers Assemble by sdowner
Another SDCC 2009 poster drawn by the great Mark dos Santos ([link]) and colored by yours truly. I'm really happy with this one. Oddly, I think my favorite thing about it is Black Widow's neck. :)

Good call, Matt.
The reflected light is in fact green; I originally had colored the bedspread a dark forest color and the client asked me to change it.
Tweaking the skin tones toward red (just a tiny bit- about 5%) really helps, though. It makes the reflected light seem more golden. There were a couple other things pointed out, so I'll probably throw a revised version up here sometime this week.

Assemble for a what, pillow fight? ;)

I think my favorite part is the gold breast plate on the Wasp. Not because it's a boob (you perv) but because you just did a great job with the rendering!

I was a little surprised when I got the art for this- I was told "it's an Avengers piece", and the high-res file was named AVENGERS_ASSEMBLE.tif. I was expecting something all actiony, and instead it was total cheesecake. (Which is totally fine with me, especially when it's as well drawn as this.)
I had a ton of fun with it and learned a couple things. I tried not to get too carried away with rendering- in fact, the shading on the bed is just a series of progressive fills with no blending. I should throw some more red into the skin tones, I think- somebody on GutterZombie mentioned that they looked a little bit jaundiced.

Hm, more red in the skin tones? Yeah maybe, but that didn't jump out to me as a problem. If you were to change the hue of anything in the skin I would say it should be in the reflected light. That seems a bit greenish I guess (I'm terrible at naming colors, which is pretty bad considering what I do for a living). The Wasp's left (her left) side of the face for example. Maybe it could be reflecting the warm color from the sheet in the lower right corner of the image.

That may have not made much sense, it is getting a bit late.
