Eddie Somewhere in Time

By JJasso
1K Favourites
when I saw Iron maiden's somewhere in time cover back in the 80's I totally was amazed by this awesome character, Derek Riggs is the original designer and this was based on his work here:
this time I wanted to create my own version, a more photo real look and make it look gross,scary and like a total badass, I avoided the exaggerated hero pose for a more natural pose, because I wanted this to look like a frame taken out from a movie
I'm a matte painter but from time to time I enjoy painting characters :)
mixed media, lots of photo manipulation, some 3D and lots of 2D painting as well

This is amazing one of the best versions of Eddie I have ever seen!  Bruce and the boys would be proud.

I'm a fan of Derek and I descovered that even earlier than my maiden records he had done Alvin's Lee one

Unbelievable! Eddie could walk right out of that picture and kick a$$ & chew bubblegum and he's ALL out of bubblegum!

Fantastic work! Five Stars!
