Digital Coloring of Frank Cho alternate cover for second printing of Black Panther #8 Color/Effects in PSPX2
It is my first attempt at this sort of thing that but I wanted to give it a go. It was done in Fireworks and PSP(First time using it!!). Background was created in Fireworks. Base image copied and greyscaled to create the hair, then the rest of the picture was removed to reveal the colour image below. The hair was then smudged to give it a better look. Belt buckle added in fireworks and resized and adjusted to match body angle. Eyes added and illuminated in PSP.
Local Hero Comment: I may have some competition here…
My latest piece was a request from my parnet. I removed the jewellery from the base picture. Added the uniform. the hair is a negative of halle’s own hair messed about and smudged to give it a better feel. added the piping on the uniform. the eyes were done in a couple of stages, first drawn and shaded by hand over the original eyes, then the glow was added using PSP starburst function(thanks Sue for pointing that out). the lightning added and softened in the back. finally the title was added. regards LH;)
