Both entries are excellent!
Funkmachine deserves credit for the background and the imaginative use of tattoos on the arms and the armour. The blood stains on the armband is a clever addition, too.
JR19759’s entry has a nicely balanced and coherent colour scheme with subtle but effective shading, especially with the facial features.
My choice for the best colouring will have to be JR’s, but it was great seeing both of your takes on my design.
JR, let me know what character you want me to recreate.
And anyone is welcome to post a new colouring challenge for us 🙂
