Client Christophe Palma (aka Kriss Palma) sent me his sixth commission, a blueline of a prelim drawing of Thor by Ariel Olivetti. This is my fifth solo Thor but my first work over Ariel. I found his final art for the prelim (in another medium) online and used it as a reference. I ink-finished or embellished it on 11X17 2-ply Kubert board with all of my normal tools plus added some dry brush. I completed it on 10/14/14.
