Looks like it's coming along well, Tawm. Well done. :) You must have spent all your red just on Belasco's cloak. :lol:

Hmm. Who are the other people (i.e. on the back cover, then)? I can see a woman with golden shoulder-guards (epaulets?), who is strangling a guy with a widow's peak. Just above them is a pterodactyl, a sabre-tooth tiger and ... a giant, I guess? To the right (just to the left of Ka-Zar) is a cave opening (I think), in which we can see another guy and some kind of demonic-like ... thing? (Or maybe it's a gargoyle?)

By the way, the woman to the extreme left (who strangles someone) originally had golden epaulets. In your version, she has bronze ones. (Deflation, perhaps?) ;)

The Sabretooth Tiger is Zabu (Ka-Zar's best friend), the green flying guy is Sauron (villain), the "purple giant" is just one of the beings that live in the Savage Land.
For the life of me, I can't remember the other characters on the back. This was the only issue (I remember) ever picking up of Ka-Zar, and it was solely because Belasco was on the cover (and he had appeared in Uncanny X-Men #160, in one of my favorite stories there). The X-Men have gone to the Savage Land (a portion of the Arctic that's not frozen, and actually still has dinosaurs, and other extinct animals, like sabretooth tigers) plenty of times, and always encounter Ka-Zar; but the rest are characters unique to his own comic series.

As for the coloring difference; sometimes I will change the color of something, if I think it makes it more ... dramatic... or contrast in colors. Like if I use too much "yellow/gold" - I will make someone's an off shoot, just so it looks different.

Hold on just a second... Sauron (a villain)? :shock: As in this guy? :lol: All right, he named himself Sauron (after the villain from the LOTR books), but I'm just thinking... how come Tolkien's estate didn't sue for breach of copyright? ;)

Well, I don't think they can sue for a name... especially since this Sauron isn't a wizard, and has nothing related to the Tolkien Sauron, other than both are villains. :)
