Midway through Lovember and finally we get to the Sensational She-Hulk, Jennifer Walters. I used my 2004 photomanip of Cindy Crawford as reference for this piece. http://www.localhero.org.uk/2004/05/wanted-litigator-apply-fisk-industries/
These roughs took about 30mins
The finished lines took about another 45 mins
The colors took another 60 mins as I was playing about a bit
Tristan Roach [link] was kind enough to give me permission to ink and color his She-Hulk sketch [link]
I hope I did it justice and Tristan doesn’t mind the extras I added to create the scene. Done in Paint Tool Sai.
Character: Marvel Comics
Time: approx 3 Hours
Found this over at John Byrne’s website and figured I hadn’t done Shulkie in a while. The background was a google find of Venice beach (hence the title) blended with some random noise sand in the foreground.
Ok, I wanted to do a follow up to my Elektra/Loss Adjuster pic for a while now, and when I found this pic of Cindy Crawford I immediately thought it would make a great base for She-Hulk, Jennifer Walters.
The source image was a bit messy so I had to do some tidying before I began. The first thing I did was to broaden the shoulders and deepen the chest using the free deform tool. This was then blended back into the original image. I then created a mask of ‘shulkie’ so I could keep things neat later. The background is created from scratch over the original murky black curtain. I used some mauve gradient fills to create a floor/wall join and to provide some lighting. I used the same effect to create the window behind ‘shulkie’ making a faux 3d effect to frame the image of new york street signs I found on google.
The spidey is taken from a pic of a statue of him peeking in another window. I shaded him to make him darker and as if lit from the room. Over spidey and the street seen I created a glass pane using the noise filter then motion and gausian blur to give it some interest, and a white/black gradient to make it look shiny. The brief case was another google find which to which I added Walters stenciling and a shadow and floor reflection to blend it with the image. All pretty simple stuff, but I just wanted to make sure I kept my basic skills up during an otherwise dry creative spell.
Just thought I would introduce the cast of ParkVengers, I plan to use them in a few funnies when I feel the need for a bit of quick comedy art.. (ie. when my main manips have me tearing my hair out)..got a few in the series to kick off.. the rest will appear as and when;) Note: IM you will have seen already, all the others are new (I redid Cap again from scratch, to get that chainmail look he has again these days;))
Well I have had this kicking about for months.. but it has never seemed ‘finished’ – I think the coloring on the skin doesn’t look quite right, you know a bit flat. Base model is Kirsty Gallagher. Was wearing a black vest and pants. So to get the blue suit involved messing with the lightness and saturation. The 4 chest piece was done in vectors and is probably the part of this pic I am most proud of. If anyone can think of what this pic needs for some extra pizazz let me know..
