A Comic Book Art Blog by Paolo Rivera
Cannot wait to see some images of Daredevil!
Anonymous, you sound like my editor!
ha ha..Go draw!
Cool timelapse. What was that "mini-palette" device stuck to your board (not the kneaded eraser), and is it magnetic?
Matthew—love your blog! To answer your question, it's 2 magnets holding a spare piece of bristol that I use to shape the brush and test color. I wrote a post about it here. I think I also mention it in the studio tour (part 1 or 2) at The Comic Archive.
Amazing Paolo, you're techniques are great!
Great work, Paolo! How long did it take you to paint the cover in real time? The background is so intricate, it's mind-boggling!
Great work, Paolo! How long did it take you to paint this in real time? The background details are mind-boggling!
Thanks, Ian. This time lapse only includes the beginning of the background process, which I had to finish up here in Florida. But according to my calendar, I spent 55 hours on it, from layout to scanning and post-production. Of course, the pose and idea had occurred to me years ago, so I already had a rough sketch of what I wanted.
Awesome time lapse Paolo! You're going to have to do more of those! Unless it gives away your secrets...
Thanks, Paul. I have no secrets—just potential lawsuits.
