Panthro!

 

PANTHRO. 2022. Ink & watercolor on illustration board, 4 × 6″.

I won't be at San Diego Comic-Con this year, but my art rep, Splash Page Comic Art, will be at Booth 4400 (just like old times). This recent Panthro piece (YouTube live stream) will be up for auction to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Even if you won't be attending, you can still bid on the original artwork here. Thanks!

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.

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.
