Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern Sketch Cover Painting Stage 4

I started this stage by working on the Lantern symbol. I did’t like way the symbol was looking so went back and reworked it. Then I outlined the symbol with Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens. From there I painted the lantern shape first and then the outside circle.  Next I painted the white area and then the shadows. Lastly I touched up the outline areas of the lantern symbol to finish up this stage.

PLANET OF THE APES GREEN LANTERN SKETCH COVER PAINTING STAGE 2

Face Process

I started this stage by painting the face with a brown undertone. Then I moved on to painting the light base tone. After that I painted the face area by slowly going back and forth building up the skin texture with dry brush technique. Next I outlined the eyes & nose with Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens and painted in the eyes.

Hair Process

I started painting the hair with a medium brown first. Next I painted in the dark areas and then added in the lighter tones. Lastly I painted in the highlights and outlined the outer hair with Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens.

PLANET OF THE APES GREEN LANTERN SKETCH COVER PAINTING STAGE 1

I was going through a box of blank sketch covers and came across a Green Lantern one. Finding it gave me the chance to paint a sketch cover inspired by Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern crossover graphic novel that I’ve been wanting to do for some time now, especially with the 1968 Planet of the Apes movie being one of my favorites. Below is the process to painting stage 1.

I started this stage by filling in the background area with Copic Black Marker. Then I masked off the logo area and figure. From there I took 1/2″ & 1″ cheap exterior house painting brushes and layered in the blue & black until the cloud effect was achieved. Next I used Liquitex free•style splatter brush to create the star field. Lastly I added burst and glow fx to various stars to finish off this stage.
