Latest in my digitally colored and textured series. This one was a pencil drawing by Jose Vicente Torres Hernandez. The eagle eyed among you may spot a background i have used before. The hardest part of the whole coloring was deciding how vivid to make the backdrop.
This started out life as a Francis Manapul sketch I downloaded off the net. Digitally colored, although im not sure the highlighting is working. Tried to make it look like the cover of the comic. The logo was originally taken froma jpeg of the comic cover, but only the ultimate part was relatively clean. I used the vector tool to draw a new spider, and added new spider-man text. new drop shadows added. the spider looked a bit flat, so i used the vector to create a selection, which was used in eye candy to create a chromed layer for overlaying. Turned out not too bad for just over an hours work.
I was looking through some old files and came across a sketch for an animated style Cap. I can’t remember where the original idea came from so I’m afraid i can’t credit the original. I decided to do some simple coloring in Paintshop. I think it turned out quite nicely. I might even try my hand at a bit of shading on it.
Albea’s great work in the Timm style inspired me to do a quick manip of a few of his pieces into one scene. I thought the poses of the characters would be great to illustrate the rift between Nightwing(the original Robin) and Batman (& the new Robin). Let me know what you think, this was just a quickie to see how the pics would look together and I think it turned out quite well. As usual all characters by Albea, layout and background by me.
Well i thad to happen didn’t it. Death & Dream visit the small mountain village of South Park. Death meets Kenny, who she thinks is kinda cool. But the course of true love seldom runs smoothly, and when they hold hands the inevitable happens. The rest of the story is pretty obvious. We have Death (with Kenny), Dream, Kyle, Stan and of course Wendy. I used the page applet to get the basics done, then tweaked and added stuff in PSP. Brought them altogether at the bust stop (which i extended a bit). I think the dialogue works well;) Info: Ryanarya posted this link to a page where you can create your own characters in the South Park style: http://www.comedycentral.com/southparkgames/character/
Ryanarya posted the link at the bottom in the no topic thread to a page where you can create your own characters in the South Park style. We had a big influx of pics of our very own artists done in this style. And I got a wee bit of inspiration. Thanks Ryanarya. Here we have The Endless (L-R Destruction, Delirium, Despair, Dream, Death, Desire, Destiny) This was a lot of fun to do. I used the page applet to get the basics done, then tweaked and added stuff in PSP. Brought them altogether on a nice hill under the stars. Hope you all like them.
I thought i would expand my repertoire(sp?) a little and have a go at using my tablet for something a little different than smudging photos. Here is a digital painting of Superman done only with the tablet and pen, the pose is based on a scan of a page i found on the web. I used this for the basic shapes and to give me an idea of where to put some shadows and highlights. I didn’t get round to doing the legs, so a bit of motion blur will had to do… Let me know what you think.
I got caught up in the thrill of nostaliga caused by the Thundercats theme day, and couldnt resist throwing this teaser poster together The logo is my own vector drawing, metal effects by eyecandy, light glow by animation shop [i did an animated one, but accidentally deleted it 🙁 ] anyways… enjoy;)
