Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 416

Here's yet another peek at the reference behind the Justice League: Classic poster. There was just so much that went into it, I've been breaking it down figure by figure. Since, the Atom didn't have an analogue in the modern version, I had to acquire some new reference. The Light probes and action figure were more of a general reference for the entire scene, which is why he's missing some of the highlights in the final rendering. I figured that Wonder Woman (behind him) would've blocked most of the rim lighting.

Comic Art Live


I'll be part of Comic Art Live later today! Tune in at 10 a.m. PST for an hour-long chat (and some live painting if I can swing it). Splash Page Comic Art and I will have some new original art for sale, including 4 (maybe 5) new 4x6" head shots and an 11x14" Wonder Woman, inked by my dad, Joe Rivera. Hope you can join us on YouTube!

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 415


Here's a detail of Green Lantern from my digitally painted Justice League: Classic print. The pose isn't too different from the modern version, but I did have to switch ring hands (not to mention Hal's face for John's). My pose above was mainly for the hands. I used Kyle T. Webster's Ruffin brush (with my own mods) for the glow, as I still wanted it to look like traditional paints.

Superior Spider-Man Prints

Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

I've got a couple new prints up in my shop, and they make a halfway decent set. These were produced by Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn (my old neighborhood) and they turned out great. I even cleaned up a few boogers that I missed when they were first published. Each Artist Proof is 16x24", will be signed and numbered (edition of 14), and ships in a heavy-duty tube. They're $45 each, or $80 for the set. Hope you enjoy!

Oh, and the originals are still available from my art dealer. You can also see the reference behind the art here and here.
