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.
Here is the finished Flashpoint Joker Cover. On this last stage, I stared with a base green color. Form there went back and forth with the different shades of green layering until the hair was complete. The background was lacking something for me so I added lightning to bring the whole cover together. Lastly, I didn’t like the way the yellow on the logo looked with rest of the cover so I decided it needed to change. Since Flashpoint Batman’s logo is black and red, I decided to change the logo to match that style. The change was made with a red copic maker by going over all the yellow areas of the logo. Once it was done, the cover come together fully. Rendered with Faber-Castell PITT artist pen, Liquitex paint and Posca paint markers.
The art cave is busy with prepping for SDCC. Working on painting some sketch covers to have with me at Booth 1330. This Flashpoint Joker is currently on my art table.
Slowly making a little more progress on this sketch cover between various projects. On this progress stage, I moved on to rendering the the face area with dry brush technique to create the symbiote texture.
I’m slowly making a little more progress on this Venom Sketch Cover between various projects. With the background all finished up, I moved on to painting the mouth area. I started painting the tongue first and built up the color layers with dry brush technique. Then I moved on to rendering the gums with the same technique.
Started working on this Sketch Cover. With the Venom Sketch Cover pencils all finished up, I moved on to painting the background. Here is the process behind the work in progress 1. The background was laid down by layering different tones of red upon each other. Once the look I was going for was achieved, I moved on to adding more texture with Liquitex free•style Splatter Brushes.
Been busy with knocking out projects, commissions and conventions so haven’t had a chance to share the finished painted Doctor Doom Sketch Cover. Here it is all finished up. Rendered with Faber-Castell PITT artist pens, POSCA paint markers and Liquitex paint.
In honor of Prince’s birthday, I decided to create a painting inspired by the 1999 time period. I listen to Prince while creating my personal artwork and his music helps to fuel my creativity.
Happy 61st Birthday Prince!
Almost finished up on this Doctor Doom Sketch Cover. This stage moved on to rendering the hood area. Lots of going back and forth with layering build up to get a cloth texture feel. Rendering with Faber-Castell PITT art pens and Liquitex paint.
Here is a little more progress on this Doctor Doom Sketch Cover. Finished up all the metal area and moved on to the inside hood area.
