Did this for fun and practice. The original that I used as a reference was done by the great Michael Turner.

Can I get a high rez of this?
I would love to try and color it.

That is really impressive.

Why do this? Does it make you a better artist? Don't get me wrong I don't intend to insult you, but why?

Agreed. Especially from Michael Turner. Not to dog on him but his skills aren't exactly study material.
Let's see some original work by you. Can't crit a copy.

I think that Gauntlet's version is a lot cleaner.
I can see what you mean by copying Turners work, but I think that Gauntlet
by cleaning it up made it a lot better.

Didn't really clean it up so much as didn't add the fringe details.

i like yours better! :) nothing wrong with mimicing the styles of artists that inspire you. it gives you the chance to duplicate the process of someone you like and hopefully get a glimse into there heads. i've worked with a stable of 10 artists when doing caricatures and we would swap out ideas i'd color there stuff,they'd color mine just to break up the grind of always following your own strokes.take what you like ,leave the rest evolve and adapt! :thumbs:

Hey you did a good job on that piece. So what if you referenced it from Michael Turner. A lot of artists in one point or another have referenced from another piece by other artists.
Keep up the good work and throw some inks on to it.

Thanks for the replies. I actually did this drawing to give to a friend for Xmas who has picked up some of the sketch cover variants of the Civil War comics. I don't know if he'll like it but it was nice practice for me especially since I have not pencilled much of the established characters out there.
Oh, and I didn't really mean to make it a comparison. I meant to show the reference image that I went from to draw mine. That is correct that I chose not to add the fringe effects and tweaked a few minor things here and there based on what I felt like adding to mine. I have always liked Michael Turner's stuff (especially his early Fathoms) but it was chance that he happened to be the cover artist of the image I picked to copy. Thanks again!

Really, copying other people's work with a creative eye on why they made the choices they did and working on reproducing their techniques, it's a fantastic learning tool.
Except for Wolvie's head looking a little off, you did a great job.
