This is a SUPERMAN color graphic being preparted for my NEW and improved Lostonwallace.com site! I worked for years with DC Comics' licensing department, learning the animated styles and other methods of drawing. I love Bruce Timm's animated style, and like to see how I can push it in my own directions. This illustration was inked with a brush and colored via Photoshop. Hope you like!
When the IronMan2 was anounced that it was on the works, for some reason i thought Scarlet Johansson was goanna play Spider-Woman... When i was 90% done with this piece i found out that it was BlackWidow whom she would be playing not Jessica Drew aka SpiderWoman. But I still liked the way it came out so i left it just the way it was. I reallllly enjoyed working on this piece, it was something so out of my element as far as the lighting and the key light and considering that it was all done with a 300 soft brush (was a bit clueless as far as my options hah stupid me!).
This is for my friend Richard....I frakkin' LOVE how this turned out. He wanted a drawing of Cyclone...I didn't have too many references to go off of with this character, so I did my own interpretation. And this is the first time I've really had to make up the hair/clothing for a pencil portrait. I can still use improving but I like the way it's going!
