First of all, my grateful thanks to everyone for all the kind comments. I haven't had a chance to reply and will do so ASAP.
Another look at the Raiders 30th concept. This time I wanted to incorporate more of Amsel's coloring and his more subtle themes as well as a physical nod to his original beautiful poster by using a few elements from his one-sheet.
The piece on the left: Grey Copic markers and Derwent Burnt Umber pencil on Acid free paper.
The piece on the right: Copic markers and prisma color pencils on a inkjet print of the piece on the right.
I generally hate using graphite pencil and enjoyed the Derwent colored pencil/Copic mix so much that I wanted to keep the original drawing as is.
