one of my biggest art pieces and one i am most proud of. i love doing big group shots like this because it gives me the chance to draw characters that i wouldnt normally draw and that i have never even attempted to draw before. think about it, everybody draws guys like wolverine and spider-man, but not everybody has drawn captain marvel or cloak and dagger. this was all roughed out and drawn on adobe flash, then transferred to photoshop for colors. unfortunately converting the vector flash file to the rasterized jpeg image lowers the quality of the lines and blurs out some of the small details.

How long does it take for you to complete something like this? I'm always interested in the workmanship because that's what really counts in great artwork and this is amazing! I think if i did anything this large with this many different characters, it'll prolly take me about 4-5 days, with breaks and sleep with the occasional full 12 hours of work. And you draw it on Adobe Flash??? How may i ask would you have executed that, because i dont use Adobe Flash?

i've lost count, but it's probably like two to three weeks to do this. i really don't feel any need to rush my art since i don't do it professionally. i use adobe flash with a wacom pen tablet for the line art. i do it the usual way, i rough out the characters and the layouts first, then do the finishes/details. it's a vector software, so the lines are cleaner than if i did it in photoshop.

that's cool. 2-3 weeks??? really? not that i feel the need to get finish, but if i can finish sooner, i can start another project, at least thats how i feel. But i love how you did your work. It turned out really nice. I even liked how you made Professor X astral projecting. I also liked how you did Cloak and Dagger as well as Sue Storm. That transparent look makes it feel like your in their world. Howard the Duck. Funny, at first i thought it was Donald Duck.

yeah, not a lot of people know howard the duck. i've actually gotten tired of asking the question "why is donald duck there"? howard is actually a marvel staple, even having a movie in the 80's.

If he was real, and he heard that, he would most likely kill you. XD
