Here's another of my sketches. This one is a duo of Chewbacca and Mr. T. This technique is fun, but it doesn't scan well. The canson paper has a very nice subtle color but it gets dulled out when scanned :( But at least you get an idea... The idea for this piece came from a comic I wrote involving Chewy and Mr. T as roommates.
Supergirl print for cons! Or is it Superwoman?
Here I used purely photoshop, (which is odd for me) to do the shading techniques and so forth. I was playing with soft and hard edges. Just a little extra step in making selections before shading away.
The Mighty Thor in his official movie costume. By adding the ocean backdrop it made me think of the similarities between Thor and Aquaman. Blond hair, occasionally with beard, large iconic weapon, both drawing on King Arthur lore, related to a natural element, same status in their respective universes and Thor even sports a kind of scale-like pattern on his sleeves... I used black guache to do the washes.
Here's a Spiderman and Mary Jane Pin-up I did. I haven't drawn Spiderman since I can't remember when. I had forgotten how much fun it is to draw him. I think it looks better in Black and White, what do you think?
I picked this layout even though it diverts from the established theme. It captures every story element and provided me with lots of textures and challenges. The lighting and flames, the smoke, the stars, the animals (yes animals!) and glowing music notes and embers, etc... See below to see how it turned out.
