A few days ago I posted the rough for this commission. Today I present the final art. This piece was done for Vincent. He had requested Aquaman in battle with the fire haired Karla. Since Karla is a favorite character of his, I wanted to showcase her. The composition is a rough circle with Karla framed in the center. In the original rough, Topo the octopus' tentacles were coming in from the bottom right. That wasn't working because it would draw the viewers eye down and off the page, looking for the rest of the octopus. So I made a change to the composition to bring Topo onto the full page. This helps complete the "frame" effect I was working towards.
Thanks to Vincent for this (and many other) commissions! The final art was done with ink on a sheet of 11" x 17" Strathmore Bristol Board.
