This one was a trial, the skin tones were very cool and I took a little more time to sooth out the values, I was sweating a little with this one.

Color Comp

This is the final stage before going to finish, the black and white comps could be taken in so many different color combos, so it important to let the art director know what you're thinking so there are no surprises when the final art arrives.
