Hulk fan art_illustration

Hulk coloured up in Photoshop. Yay!!!
The background was done also on the ipad using adobe ideas. One such item found here on my pinterest board helped me heaps when trying to figure out how to do the explosion. Pinterest by the way is a great site. A reference depository of absolute greatness. Hopefully going to the link will bring up the smoke cloud. If not directly just scroll down till you find 'Thinking 3-dimensioanlly when designing smoke clouds'.

As always thanks for coming on by and visiting. 
And please feel free to leave a comment. I would love to know what makes your world tick too.

Have a great week.

Tools used:
  • Adobe ideas
  • Photoshop CS3
  • Illustrator CS3 for the The Incredible Hulk text

Hulk fan art_inked

Avengers age of ultron is on this weekend. So can't wait to see it. And it just so happened that I was doing some muscular studies. One thing lead to another and....boom, the Hulk appeared. Hello Mr Hulk.
Always struggle with hands so I did a little reference gathering. Thanks Ipad camera. Luckily for you the viewer I didn't have to take off my shirt. Thank goodness for that!!!

Hulk inked on ipad over sketch using the wonderful adobe ideas app.
Happy friday everyone (that's tomorrow) New Zealand time.

Take care and thanks for visiting.

Tools used:

Character Concepts no.2

In between doing the Star Wars fan art with Han and Chewie I try to do character drawings. Not always studies as such but just here they are. 
I feel this keeps me fresh and also breaks up stale moments I have (and I have plenty) when on a more focused piece like the Star Wars Fan art.

As always, thanks for popping on in. Go Monday!!!

Tools used: (both on ipad)
  • Adobe ideas
  • Procreate

Star Wars fan art_Concept completed

Han, Chewie now all setup with background elements (AT-AT walkers). Next is to ink these guys up following Patrick Browns tutorial. Then it's onto colouring. Really looking forward to that.
The AT-AT walkers were sourced from Sketch up and finished up in illustrator.
I am thinking probably a Endor feel for the colour palette (forest colours).

As always, thanks for visiting. Happy Wednesday!!!!

Star Wars Fan art_Chewbacca Sketch

Continuing on from a previous post  - click here - I have developed Chewbacca. I will post up soon both Chewie and Han together in a background. As I love the AT-AT walkers from Empires Strike Back, they will definitely be in the shot somehow.
Thanks for visiting, hope you had a nice easter. Love holidays!!!!

Bye for now.
