Made a little more progress of this Halloween inspired Batman Red Rain painting. In this second painting stage, I used dry brush technique. I like the way dry brush picks up the texture of the paper while layering the paint. Next up will be finishing up Batman and then adding in the background.
With my favorite holiday just around the corner. It’s got me inspired to create some creature artwork. So I’ve been wanting to paint this Batman from one of my favorite Elseworld stories. Haven’t done an illustration on black paper in some time and thought this Batman illustration would look good on it and capture the atmosphere I wanted to express with this piece. Here’s the beginning stage of my Batman Red Rain painting on Strathmore Artagain paper.
Gearing up for WonderCon with this painted Flashpoint Batman Sketch Cover. I will have this and other sketch covers available at my table in Artist Alley C-56. Rendering with Faber-Castell PITT artist pens and Liquitex paint.
Here are some of the highlights from my 2018 SDCC experience. I did a couple portfolios this year. I saw the awesome Joe Jusko, he’s the reason I decided to pick up a brush and start painting. His new art book “Joe Jusko’s Marvel Masterpieces” was on sale and I was able have it signed. I visited my art friends booths, had a look at the many exhibitors, took pictures of cosplayers and hangout with family and friends while I was there. I took way to many pictures to share them all so here are some of my favorites.
Batman commission is underway with layout pencils all finished up. Up next is the adding tones process.
The 2017 SDCC was busy as always. It was great seeing all the exhibitors, artists, friends and family. Here are some of the highlights from this years convention experience. My personal highlights was getting pictures with Joe Quesada, Greg Capullo, Scott Snyder and Robert Kirkman. They are all super cool dudes and I deeply appreciate them taking the time to take pictures with me!!!
Here is the finished painted DK III Sketch Cover Artwork.
