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.
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.
Been wanting to illustrate some Elseworld characters. So went with one of my favorite Elseworld characters. Here is the Flashpoint Batman Sketch Cover Pencils all finished up. Will be adding color to this in the future.
Doctor Doom Sketch Cover pencils all finished up. Looking to add paint to this soon.
Happy New Year!!!
A huge thank you to everyone for your continued support with my art! I hope you all have an amazing 2019 of success and prosperity!!!
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.
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 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.
