Another Valiant piece that I did as a commission.
I love the double figure composition and some of the interesting angles that come out of that. I stole the idea of the circuit board design on the back shamelessly from a Captain America piece that was reproduced at postage stamp size in Steranko's History of Comics. It worked so well with the concept of Rai's floating Japanese nation that I simply had to use it. I also like the idea of Bloodshot, who is usually presented as a gun-happy maniac, presented in a more relaxed, if wary, state.
Inked this up to work well in black and white, using the tight crosshatching that gave me a good greytone on Rai's body and face. Tough to do if you're not having a good day with the brush. They actually used to have a zipatone for that, so you could literally get away with murder and not have to do any of the rendering yourself.
