This painting above is something I did for another portfolio piece, and to try and get more cover work. I'm really enjoying painting with this technique, and I thought since the last post involved DC characters, this one should involve Marvel. I chose to show the avengers as they've been seen sperately on screen (Thor has only been seen in previews for the movie next summer.) Also, even though Bruce Banner has already been re-cast for the actuall Joss Whedon Avergers flick, I though Ed norton did the best job so far. Neither one of the Hulk movies has really gotten my attention, but maybe one day they'll make an interesting one.
Anyway, this is also going to be my Artist's Alley background display at Supercon in a week or so. It's right here in Denver, and it's a gaming convention. It should be a lot of fun, even though I don't know a lot about today's latest video games. The artwork for them is always amazing and exciting to me though, and I think it fits right in there with comic book art and illustration in general. I'll post more about Super-con after it's done.
