Jean Grey – Super Model

3rd piece in my Jean Grey series.

This would be the Grant Morrison’s New X Men version of Jean. The period where they all decided that spandex was not practical for the X Men. I personally think it is a funky/modern take on their costume. This was especially for Jean, whom I think would look like a hipster Super Model in the outfit.

With this piece, I am attempting to create a piece that looks like a magazine spread. There are 3 elements in here that I am experimenting with but was never very comfortable with:

1) Fashion piece (because very simply… I am a guy…)
2) Typography… hope it looks a magazine article’s
3) Black and White renders (I always like colors more… so in the end I succumbed and added a dash of colors still…

Jean Grey with Love

2nd piece in my Jean Grey series. First piece can be seen here.

This one goes waaaay back when she was “Marvel Girl”.

I wanted to recreate a retro pinup piece. Sort of like one of those photos wives/girlfriends used to give the soldiers just before they go off into war.

Probably a piece I might revisit in the future when I get a bit better. There is a sense that something is still… “missing” although I cannot put my finger on it.

Any help in this area would be GREATLY appreciated.

Deadly Cherry Blossoms

I wanted a more “basic” look for this piece with Psylocke. I like her Asian mythos, so I went more oriental for this piece as well.

The kenji in the background means “Samurai”. I know she is not one, but the word “ninja” just does not seem to fit well into this image. Call it my little bit of… creative liberty.

Flight of the Supergirl

Supergirl, dc comics, dc, kara zor el

This piece was very much inspired by Alex Ross’ piece of Clark Kent changing into Superman. Thought I’ll try it out with Kara Zor-el.

For this piece, I (again) experimented with adding a background to the piece. Think it gives the piece more “life”. It’s also the first time I am trying for a more photorealistic face for the subject. I was going for Keira Knightly… Not sure if I succeeded.

Justice Jam

Justice Jam, Justice League, Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman[link]

This was the one that started it all… I just thought that Superman’s new design, with the jeans looked pretty… “grunge”… like he should belong in a rock band. So I did this piece and I kinda got carried away and did a band jam piece for the whole Justice League…

Justice League, Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder WomanI am a big sucker for combination panorama comic covers, so I wanted this to be the concept for this series.

Batman:

Joke of a Bat


What if Joker became the Batman? inspired to do this piece by the Flashpoint version of Batman.

One of the critiques to one of my previous piece was that the background was not exciting enough, so decided to try my hand at doing some background work… a shambled down Gotham with a Bat/Joke signal in the background…
