Third and probably final piece in this series, just a chance to see the Bugle from Thing’s desk in a bit more detail. The hulk pic is a Jim Sweet picture.
Well I guess this could either be the sequel or prequel to my ‘Ben baiting Bruce’ pic. I think it works better as the sequel, given the newspaper article.
The Bugle front page was created from scratch using a black n white sketch of the hulk i downloaded ages ago which had a news photo quality to it. (I have realised this was by Jim Sweet). The banner (no pun intended) line logo was cobbled together from a couple of pics. The article text made up on the spot. The desk also shows a couple of my Derenick/Hulk related pics. The small corner visible on the right is an Alex Ross recreation of the first Fantastic Four cover. An excercise in perspectives, but fun none the less.
Theme day submission. This started from the previous manip i did of the Hulk (based on a combination of a Randy Bowen Bust and a Jim Sweet statue). I found some good explosion pictures and decided to do the Hulks origin in the Gamma Bomb explosion. The explosion layers were built up to give it more volume. Banner was added at the very front of the explosion. The smaller hulk forms part of the explosive cloud and came from a picture of a model i found on the net. A bit of blending, shading, and there ya go.
