I'm really pleased with the results - the colouring looks great! Thanks to the colour wheel picking the perfect contrasting colour to the various shades of deep greens used on the lush Shazamazon jungle (that is taking up two thirds of the background) - that colour being orange.

I also liked how Larry and Leeta are showing their athleticism on this drawing - they are actually hot on the trail to locate some rather prominent intruders who are causing a disturbance at Soumerca (home to the Wolf Pack Nation and the Pais Misteriouso). They were last seen deep in the jungle where the Temple of Shazamazon is hidden within it.

One can wonder what the Secret Freedom Fighters will discover when they've reached their goal! Find out in the next concept piece - 'The Missing Blue Chaos Emerald'.

The lighting is really pops-out in this! And the coloring is indeed fantastic. Can't wait to see your next Secret Freedom Fighters concept piece. I really hope they get another story arc in the Archie comics. :D
Talk about an intimidating look for Larry. =D

I agree about the coloring; I think it's one of the biggest strengths of this if not the biggest strength of this picture. The colors along with the shading help bring a massive amount of detail to this. I absolutely love how the characters came out, especially their poses along with the background and the sky (one area where I think the colors truly shine here).

Very nice, bud. Your realistic take on these characters gives it a very unique approach.

Thank you, that is what I'm aiming for - creating a Sonic Archie style of my own that could one day be used in the comics should I get some art done for them. 8-)
