Ghost Rider - Coloured Pencil by StingRoll Ghost Rider - Coloured Pencil by StingRoll
Alright. This is the Ghost Rider picture I have been working on as a part of :iconheroescorner:'s Character of the Month for November.

This was inspired by Clayton Crain's work on the Ghost Rider books through Marvel.

For those that are interested;
Sketch is here: [link]
Inked Version here: [link]

Basically this is my done by hand version, coloured with coloured pencils, I did give the background a quick touch up though as it was a bit dirty looking :P

Ghost Rider certainly was a challenge to do and I do plan to digitally colour the inked version at some point in the future, but probably not for a while yet.

And before anyone starts... I'm sure the motorbike isn't completely up to scratch... I have no idea about Motorbikes :P

Anyway, as per usual I am most interested to hear what everyone thinks :D

What a fantastic job on this drawing. Your pencil work overpowers what a digital artist could do normally, with ease.

I myself have never seen Ghost Rider, but I'd sure watch it if it looked like this! Fire looks 'real' and the skull is very menacing (I hate skulls :(!). There's nothing I can see to critique badly on, and I'd say my favorite part is the coloring of the sky.

I sure wish I could draw like this, let even more so color it like that! You are one skilled artist, and I will favorite this along with critique because I actually do look back at my favorites.

This is one of the best things I have critiqued so far!

What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
11 out of 15 deviants thought this was fair.

I just remembered I got a premium membership recently! let's see what I can do with this....
I feel like once you were inspired, you just ran with it and was able to crank out this beauty. :]

Of course, we've seen some images like this before around: some sinister looking fellow riding a motorcycle... but the way you pulled it off is something I've never seen before. You obviously have the colored pencil technique down very well. I only feel like the motorcycle looks a bit unfinished in shading when put in contrast with the figure...

The flames and chains are rendered well and compliment the whole piece a lot.

My favorite part of this piece is probably how the shading on the shirt/vest/jacket is :]

I just feel like this piece is missing a definite light source though [but that may be because of the flames all around casting lights of their own...]

overall : really good job :]

now to go off and practice more of this "legit" critiquing that's not in comments ._. ... or something

*pretends that first venture was mildly successful*

This is quite nice! 

The dark parts definitely pack a punch! It's quite hard to get color pencil that dark.

It's also quite hard to add highlights for color pencil - you'll find the digital version more flexible and forgiving ;)
