|SPIDER-MAN STYLE GUIDE. 2016. Gouache &|
Acryla Gouache, Photoshop on bristol board, 11 × 17″.
Marvel asked me to do a style guide pin-up of a certain popular character and I was more than happy to oblige. The only stipulation (besides "make it look cool") was that the figure had to be on a separate layer from the background. That being the case, I painted the main figure in gouache and the buildings in Photoshop using Kyle T. Webster's brushes (mostly the gouache set, and a few mods of my own).
|Come at me, bro!|
I wanted the figure in direct sunlight, so I took my handy mannequin outside to get the right light. I had to take a couple different pics to get the effects I wanted. I've also been working on a pair of legs in Sculptris that I lit in Photoshop for highlight information.
I have no idea where this will end up, but keep an eye out for it... and please let me know if you see it out in the wild!
