Wow! I really like how you use your darks. I was wondering can you tell me of any resources that will help me get better at light and shadow. I keep hearing from other artist that my foundation and basics are okay- but I need to imrove my rendering. When I look at other comics and art I notice that most of the rendering is done on the underside of the muscle. Is this just some rule or just a stlye most artist prefer.

Hey Tony… The best way to study light and shadow is to look at real life! Also, if you want to study high contrast shadowing, I suggest you track down some old black & white films. The cinematography is quite different from colored films, and you can see how the filmmakers utilize black & white to their advantage. As for comic book artists, the best at shadows (IMO) is Alex Toth. He doesn’t need fancy rendering, but he can still make a comic page stand out because of his excellent sense of light and shadow. David Lloyd is also a master of shadows, and if you want study rendering take a look at the works of Nestor Redondo and Alfredo Alcala. Hope this helps!
