Wonder Woman custom shoe 2. Here is the process for custom shoe 2. The main image area for the second shoe is primed, pencil drawing transferred and ready for the painting process.
I’ve been meaning to post this earlier, but been busy knocking out commissions and working on my indie comic magazine. I have 3 pieces of artwork on display at the Generations Art Exhibit which is currently running now through Monday, October 29. Everyone’s artwork on display can be seen at Legacy Commons and Palmdale Playhouse.
Wonder Woman Custom Shoe 1 is all finished up. This stage 3 of my process. I added the gray metal to the gauntlets and brown to the hand wrap. After all the painting is done.I went back and added a few lighter tones to some areas to complete shoe number 1. Up next will be shoe number 2.
Wonder Woman custom shoes progress stage 2. The face, body, hair and gold metal is achieved by laying down the base colors or flats in the digital world painting. Once base colors are done next up is building values by going back & forth layering of darks, midtowns and lights. Main technique used is dry brush. The brushes I used for this stage are the 5, 10, & 18 spotter, 1/8 angel shader and chiseled blender.
Here is my painting process for Wonder Woman Custom Shoes. This is first of the two shoes. The main image area for the first shoe is primed, pencil drawing transferred and ready for the main painting process.
Here is the Ant-Man Sketch Cover finished painting. For the final stage of this sketch cover painting I worked on the finished black part of the costume. Then went back to the helmet and finished up all the red areas. Lastly, I painted the red parts of the costume. The brushes I used for this stage are the size 5 & 10 spotter, size 2 angle shader and chiseled blender. I continued wit the dry brush technique that I talked about in previous posts. Dragging the paint with dry brush also achieves a satin feel to the painting.
Here is Ant-Man Sketch Cover painting process 2. Started the metal painting stage. This stage is achieved with dry brush layering. Going back and forth with adding the darks and lights. The brushes I use for this stage are the size 5 & 10 spotter, size 2 angled and chiseled blender. The reason I use dry dry brush technique is it picks up the grain of the paper and you get these subtle imperfections that add value to the overall feeling of the artwork.
Ant-Man Sketch Cover Painting is underway. Here’s the beginning process. I masked off the Ant-man with tracing paper and painter tape. Next I layered the paint background with sponges, cheap $1 paint brushes and Liquitex Freestyle Splatter Brushes.
Here’s the finished up Sinestro Sketch Cover and the last step to my process. This is my favorite part of the process, adding all the little things that bring the artwork together. I add yellow to the energy with marker and acrylic using dry brush. For the ring power glow I use the same technique. Plus I went back to enhance the in the eyes.
Here’s the next step in my creative process of adding color to this Sinestro Sketch Cover. Topic’s are very similar to watercolor. You have to start with the lightest color first and slowly build up layers of overlapping darker colors and tones. Like with watercolor paint you need to use the white of the paper for highlights throughout your illustration. So here is progress shots 2.
