After the Con ( Watchmen)
Well, this WAS supposed to be finished before Comic-con to show there, but as they say, the best laid plans of mice and men....
Anyway, this is something I did as a potrfolio piece, using acrylic paints and colored pencils on illustration board. The original is fairly large (2'x3.5'). It was a lot of fun experimenting with this one. I thought that the Watchmen movie nailed some of the characters and totally missed the point on others. I chose to use movie reference for the a few of the guys, but I did my own versions of Viet and Silk Spectere (based on Gibbon's comic versions) I also chose to mix movie and comic versions of Nite Owl.
And, since I think the Comedian's face turned out the strongest, here's a dteail of it. Click on it to see it at the actuall size it was painted.
So, to get back to talking about Comic-con San Diego 2010, this year was AMAZING.
