Here's another method experiment. This time over Joe Lalich's Hulk sketch (http://www.digitalwebbing.com/forums/showthread.php?t=108719). C&C welcome.

This works...but don't stop. Push the darks further to really make the highlights pop. Even by making the darker areas more so, you'll see a big difference in where the light areas need to be and you can go form there making the colors more defined. You could go "full digital" with this one if you have the patience.

Good work. In my vision it only lacked more a little of shadows in the volume.

I was comparing the two back and forth between your colors and Joe's original. I have to say that while you have the color basics and the shadows done well, you additions seem to have short changed the mood portrayed in the original.
Maybe address the piece in simple inks, black and white first. I think the contrast would provide a postive insight as to the proper way to layout the colors to maintain the mood.
One of the contributing factors to this is the loss of fine line facial work detail from the pencils to the colors. I am uncertain, because I can not blow your pic up as large as I can the pencils, but that seems to be costing you some of the intensity in the face.
I think also think that the pencil effect that the coloring seems to have is not really the best medium for this pic. Deeper (and maybe more shaded or muted) colors would give the picture a better effect. The colors here seem a little bright.
You also seem to have lost some of the intensity of the physical dimensions shadows. Your coloring should amplify these effects, not subdue or relieve them. Again I think with a black and white effort first you could better understand your coloring effort
Just some thoughts...
Good effort though

Okay, I won't stop, Spacious Interior. :) How's this?

Hey, your post wasn't here a second ago, W. Smith. However, I agree that I didn't catch the mood right in the first version. I tried to take it farther into the painting realm this way, so most of Joe's original lines are obscured now. An ink version may have helped me though since I am an inker most of the time so switching from B&W mode to color is sometimes at odds. Thanks for the crit.

This much better one. . .
But it tries to avoid to work with the pure black color.
When it takes for impression of the always problem.
Work with a close color only.

Much, much better. The heavier blacks really do give it the depth the pencils ellude to. Well done.
