It Isn't Easy Being Green by AdamHughes It Isn't Easy Being Green by AdamHughes
Year: 2010
Client: Emerald City Comic-Con
Media: Pencil & PITT pen on Strathmore Drawing paper, then colored with Adobe Photoshop CS2

Here's a detail of the Wicked Witch of the West, from this piece: [link]

I'm showing the version from before I added the distressed, old paper Layer, so you can see the details. Merry Christmas. I really enjoyed the bevel effect for the lace of her top and the damask rose brocade of her corset; gonna have to use that again somewhere.

I love the way you gave her clothing various textures. Very nice. The skin tonal changes are very nice too. Green is hard to get to look believable and I think you did a valiant job of doing it.

Hey Adam. I didn't realize it at first, but I've been a fan of yours since Death Hawk. Are you going to NYCC this year? If I bring you my copy of Star Trek: Debt of Honor, would you sign it? Sorry If I sound like such a fanboy.
