The Magnificent Seven by J-Skipper The Magnificent Seven by J-Skipper
40 Hours inking, 30 hours coloring, coming to a total of a 70 hour project, one of the longest (maybe THE longest) I have ever done! But I took my time, made sure I was pleased with how this turned out. I think it was worth it! :) Love Jim Lee's work!!

I actually have an image (done by J Scott Campbell) with those characters and much more, in my "to do" list. Don't know when I'll get to it though.

dude, I am officially disgusted by you!

That is some damn fine work right there, really top-notch work!

You are the newest name on my 'must develop the skills to over-throw them' list!

Only thing that doesn't flow as smooth as silk, Aquaman's shirt - I think all it needs (on both flats and shines) is a little more pop and the piece is masterful!

Wow! Thanks!! Haha, glad to be on your list... I guess? :shrug:

Now that you've pointed that out it's kind of obvious. if I get time I'll work on his shirt a little more.

If you don't mind me asking - well, I'll ask here and if you would prefer to reply in a note:

Do you use any fancy tricks for your colour work?

Like I've gotten some good results using a brush/gradient set to screen and paint on a layer set to overlay

You do something similar, or straight up colour work? (just curious)

J-Skipper Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, sometimes I experiment with blending modes, but mostly it's just straight up color work.

It makes me kind of happy to know how many hours were spent on this as I often think that if I had more talent, the artistic process wouldn't take so agonizingly long, but I guess that's not necessarily the case.

Looks awesome, but maybe you could have drawn Green Lantern in a way that didn't make it look like he's doing the Hitler salute.

I didn't draw this. I just colored it.

Alright. But still, Jim Lee should have paid more attention to his art.

I don't think I'll ever get used to the new design of Superman's costume. The new dark color scheme has really taken away from his 'The best in all of us' vibe he used to have.

Maybe it's just too close to the look of The Eradicator's outfit from Rise of the supermen. I dunno.


Still at least all the other characters look heroic.

Good work there.

Yeah I have yet to accept the new look. It doesn't look like THE Superman but like an alternate Supes. But it's a good modernization.

Yeah, Like I said, it's the most amount of time I've ever spent on a piece! It took forever!
But I'm proud of it, so it was worth it!
