And who says Aquaman can't be cool?? I had entirely too much fun with this image. And I was pretty proud of myself because instead of coloring the way I normally do, I tried to make it a bit more painterly (don't know if I succeeded, but it was still fun). And you can all congratulate me because I actually painted that sky! But I did use textures for the water and the rocks, but I did do the sky, so yay for me. Dig.
This is Flora and Oon from Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors. Since Flora is a girl created from a flower, I used plant motifs such as petals, leafs and vines as design elements for her. I also went with very intense and vibrant colors for this piece to suggest colors of blooming flowers.
While searching for references on Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, I realized the vehicle concepts are simply cars with power tools strapped onto them... The Lightning League vehicle show here is "Drill Sergeant", a two-seater vehicle with a drill on top to dig tunnels. But do you know that drill tanks are an impossibility and in real life can turn into spinning coffins of deaths? Oh well...
Another in the series of pieces I did for a recent gallery exhibition.
It's no secret that I'm a HUGE wrestling fan, and knowing that a lot of what was going to be exhibited by the other artists in the show would be very "thought provoking" and "challenging", I wanted to stand up and say, "I'm not complicated, this is a picture of two wrestlers. And I've made it look old because I think it's cool!"
Even so, many of my friends and family overheard attendees discussing the hidden meanings and messages in my work.
