I just can't beat something that's stylized so well. Dan Paladin is one of my favorite artists ever for his work with the Behemoth--and i've heard a lot of comparisons to influences in my style (which is very true.)
Here's my expanded take on the four (sans king. i guess i left him out.), that was colored entirely in flash (which is a change, since i usually do most of my inking in it these days.) and effects were added after with photoshop. (and an added lightsaber, just to prove that yes. it was me that really did this.)
I'm happy with it. i wish i would have made the left side as comprarable to the right as far as symmetry, but. eh...what're ya gonna do?
