Wonder Woman custom shoe 2 is all finished up. In this last stage of my process, I finished the hair up and the went back an added a few more highlights to the overall painting.
Wonder Woman custom shoe 2 process stage 3. The metal and leather strap was achieved by laying down the base color/flats in the digital world of painting. With the base colors finished, now I build up the values up slowly by going back & forth layering darks, midtowns and lights. I continue this painting stage with my crushes of choice and the technique mention in previous posts for this artwork.
Wonder Woman Custom Shoe 2 process stage 2. The face and body are achieved by laying down the base skin tone color or flats in the digital world of painting. Once the base color is done, I start building up the values by going back a & 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, size 2 angle shader and chiseled blender.

Remembering my life hero today! Prince has had a profound impact on my life in so many ways. When creating my personal artwork or working on commissions, Prince is a huge part of my creative process. Listening to his music helps to fuel my creativity. I remember discovering his music during Junior High School. The Controversy Album was out at that time. I listened to it and has hooked instantly to his purple punk funk music. I’m definitely blessed to have seen him in concert many manny times!
This year I have an Art Gallery Exhibit currently running and couldn’t think of a better exclusive piece to create than the combination of comic books and Prince, two of my favorite influences in life. Here is one version of Partyman 2.0 created in honor of my life hero!
Happy 60th Birthday Prince!
Here is the finished Partyman 2.0 an exclusive art piece for my art gallery exhibit “The Unique Realm of Pepe Melan” which started yesterday with an opening reception at the Palmdale Playhouse. I throughly enjoyed talking about the process, technique and time it takes to create piece of my artwork. I am very honored, humbled and deeply appreciate everyone who took the time to attend the opening reception! Your support means the world to me, Thank you!!
The Art Gallery Exhibit runs from May 3 – July 8, 2018. For more information, please check here http://www.palmdaleplayhouse.com
