Title: Galactus approaches!
Name: Daniel James Cox
Country: Australia
Software: Painter, Photoshop

Galactus approaches! I wanted to use lighting and scale to suggest his human form and I thought it would also be good to use a limited colour palette, so I chose his traditional colour scheme of purple and blue. His glowing eyes were a no-brainer and straight from the comics (you can't beat the old glowing eye trick for drama). Hope you like! Thanks...Daniel

This is such a cool piece of art, I love it. Thumbs up!

Nice! A more traditionally artistic approach to comic-book material is always a treat. For such an ominous subject it's quite beautiful. 4 stars

Yeah, I wish they would have done this in Fantastic Four II.

Very cool!
