Inked version...Lost in Space

I finished inking the earlier penciled picture. It turned out OK, but not how I thought it was going to look...I was hoping for a more "integrated" look, so Warlock is almost blended in with the stars.

...maybe if there was more shadow on the shadow side?
You could probably do some quick experiments in Photoshop if you wanted...

I like it as is, but if you want him to be more transparent, try making his left eye a planet or moon.

Like Norm suggested, a quick Photoshop cut & past will tell you if it works.

I like the way you did the planets. Very nice!

I always forget that Photoshop is a tool to try changing things around with with out having to take whiteout brushes from the drawer :)

I am going to give it a whirl and see if I can get it a bit more...cosmic.

Jack,

Thank you. I have been looking at the way Al Williamson rendered space scenes in his Buck Rogers comics (there is a new reprint out) and I am using a bunch of his techniques here.
