Wings of Rain

Nightwing in the Rain

Nightwing

Took a long break because I just quit my job and am now travelling the world with my wife! (True Story)

I had a lot of fun with the rain effect. It’s the second time I am attempting this after a try on Daredevil:

Devil Rain

Used a lot of brushes/layers and spent A LOT of time on them, but it was a great learning experience.

This is still one of my first works.. Still trying to find my “style”

C&C most welcome

Thanks for viewing

The Devil You Know…

My latest model – Matt Murdock aka Daredevil.

Surprisingly, I had less trouble with the full body modeling of Daredevil than I had with Green Lantern.

A portrait. The hardest part for this is definitely his eyes. Daredevil is supposed to be blind and his mask covers his eyes. How do you make a model emote without eyes?

And finally… an action shot…. Felt the previous modeling’s were pretty “static”, so decided to try an action shot. Not sure if this translated well into pictures.

I was caught in the rain today…

I cannot believe it’s been so long since I’ve experienced rain. It’s incredible, but true. It’s been dry season here since I arrived. And for these people, dry season really means dry season. Not a drop of rain fell for the past 6 months. None that I’ve noticed anyway…

So I was really caught off guard by the sudden downpour.

And it was one of the best feelings I’ve had for a long time.

There’s something incredibly liberating about standing out in the middle of a downpour; slowly strolling in the rain and just making a general fool of yourself. What made it even better is that there is no one here to chide you for not being “sensible” enough to come out of the rain.

If being foolish feels so good, I say Screw Sensibility…
