ON THIS DAY IN 1977

On this day in 1977, one of my all time favorite movies was released, “Star Wars”. The first time I saw it was at the drive-in theater with my family. hard to believe that was 45 years ago!

BATMAN BACKGROUND TAKING SHAPE

Here’s a glimpse of the digital background painting process taking shape on this traditional/digital hybrid Batman poster illustration.

THE BATMAN TRADITIONAL PAINTING PROCESS ALL FINISHED UP

Here’s a look at the finished up traditional painting process on this Batman piece rendered on black illustration board. It was fun experimenting with this type of rendering using acrylics. next up scanning and adding the digital background.

THE BATMAN PAINTING EXPERIMENT

I started on this Batman piece recently. It’s painted on black illustration board. In high school this was one of my favorite types of illustration, but back then I used colored pencils to render the subject. it’s great to experiment with this type of illustration using acrylics this time.

LOVESEXY WAS RELEASED TODAY IN 1988

On this day in 1988, Lovesexy was released. Lovesexy was the first time I was able to see Prince in concert. It was such an amazing concert! This artwork is inspired by the Lovesexy music videos and concert.

HAPPY STAR WARS DAY

May the 4th Be With You!!

This piece is a hybrid of traditional and digital art. Boba Fett was painted on a Star Wars Sketch Cover with acrylics. I scanned the painted sketch cover and removed the background. Then I rendered a different digital background to create an 18×24 poster with you can see in my artwork gallery. I’m looking forward to seeing more of him in future Mandoverse series.
