Neat, dude! My only advice would be to maybe push the fishinees even further. Smile

Thanks! Yeah it's been bugging me, maybe give him one big back fin or something. What do you recommend?

sorry this is so rough, but i wanted to take a sec and sketch out some ideas for the fishier direction i was talking about. i also modded the costume just slightly to give a more alien feel. anyway, it's a great idea for a character, and i hope to see more of him. Smile

Ahaha! Man, that's great! Here's a pic of the design I had set for him a while back. But today I thought "Grrr, he's got shorts and leggings and is fishBOY just like hellBOY." Maybe I'll call him Fish Man or "Burt" like i intended. He materialized in my head when I realized I'd never seen Creatur from the Black Lagoon, the other night I finally did and man, it was gorgeous. Now I'm really into the fishy man stuff Razz

very nice! PERSONALLY, i'd go with the fun orange color. orange isn't color often used on supercharacters in general, and the greenish hues have been used on a few too many fishguy characters, like abe sapien and lagoon boy.

okay nobody remember lagoon boy.

so what's the plan? gonna set up a webcomic or something? let me know and i'll rock you some fan art. Smile

Wurd. I was thinking of doing a 1-shot book or something. But I guess I'll try putting it on the web first and then printing it sometime. Gotta outline a story first, the ideas have been swimming in my head but there's no flow for it. Thanks again dude. I'll stick with the orange!

Okay, I cranked out the first page! Here's what I've tried to color so far. It's dark so I tried to make the sky purple, and try to make sand in panel 2. Maybe I should make the outer parts black? I'm still trying to color in PS7 so if I can make this better let me know, your way better at it!

I say absolutely go with the orange. It contrasts well with the background.

I did a grey toned version http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisgraves/105162682/
I guess I'll stick to that, feels like sin city with tones.
