I started this painting a couple of weeks ago but never got around to finish it. But today I picked it up and a couple of hours later it was done!

The challenge with this was to take the original Martian Manhunter design and try to make it more current. I had a blast with this. I hope you guys dig it! Enjoy!

This is sick! I just finished one and I wish I had made it a bit darker. I didn't realize how bright the colors were. What program did you use? And brushes?

I went and checked it out. I like your version. Very true to the original. I use Photoshop with a pen tablet. For the brushes i just use soft round.

Thanks for the input! I've been working on a new piece using a combination of hard round, soft round, and one of the pointed ones for CS5. I typically don't use the blend tool but I find myself applying it on certain parts. Seems to work well. I'll link you to it when I am finished if you'd like.

Hey! Glad to hear that. Every artist has their own style to render in and that's the great thing and the thing that will seperate you from others. :) You be sure to do that.

Checked it out! I would say that this is your strongest piece so far. No doubt about it. I love seeing progress like this. Keep at it and work hard! :)

This is amazing! I love it! My only problem is that you're showing his age; LOL But the detail is simply amazing!
MattiasFahlberg's avatar
Hahah! But he is old! :P Or atleast he could be... or... I give up. ;) Glad you dig it.

Martian Manhunter kicks ass!!! He is neglected way too much
MattiasFahlberg's avatar
Yes he is! I hope we someday get to see a movie about him. :)

Totally agree; 100%! He is way under-rated...
