This time around, I want to see what kind of Herald for Galactus you can make (do not include Galactus in the image, or it will be disqualified).
 
voting will begin at Noon on June 18th, and end at midnight of June 20th.

@Omegaman10:  
  1. Show the feet. The hands are covered and you don't want to fall into the Liefeld zone. (I don't need to explain that right? Your an artist and a comic fan, you know)
  2. the line pattern looks great and follows the contours of his body well except for the stomach; The way the lines are on the stomach makes it look like a beer gut.

@Omegaman10:  I like the hands as light constructs.  
 
For those not i"in the know": Appendages are tricky to get right and Liefeld can't draw accurate anatomy to save his life, SO, he hides them behind things and/or off-panel.

Here's my entry.  If I had to come up with a name, I would call it ... Moonsoul. Or something like that. If anyone else has a better name for it, I would be interested in hearing it, I kinda suck at name creation (My first thought was to name it Harold. See what I did there?). 
 
At any rate, if someone wants to color this I have the linework alone in my image gallery.

Omegaman10 yours looks Regal. I really liked ur original also and really did not see a problem with the design around the stomach area. A little changing of the line design would have worked too. 
 
Just to let everyone know that your entries look great! There is good use of layout and positions in each. Proud of everyone for the effort in the design of their characters...

5 minute sketch plus another 5 for colouring... Sorry if I did not put much effort. Look at it this way, it's a bit different with the other entries.... And only my entry captured in its essence the word "herald"! Hehehehe! J/K... peace!

@ssejllenrad: This guy's got a Tron trail, and I'm liking it. And the sad part is that I'm contemplating what use a horn would be if the fella can move faster than the speed of sound (ignoring the whole no sound in space) because he would outrun his own heralding. And writing this is just making me more sad still.

@LT1085: Wow! I think I've seen that space background before in a space in photoshop tutorial circulating in the net.... Damn mate I can't perfect that technique and you nailed it! Oh wait! Are you the one that wrote that tutorial? If so then kudos and tons of gratitude to you! I've learned so much from that tutorial.
 
If however, I'm mistaken and you're not in any way connected with that tutorial then much merit to you still cause that work of yours is AWESOME!!!! Your works are so realistic yet deeply surreal at the same time.
