WrathPosted: May 2, 2011
Welcome to this week’s Pencilflex. And to start off for this week’s theme, here’s Wrath. The initial inspiration for this piece is Adam Hughes’ cover for Wonder Woman #157. I loved the concept of an image imprinted on the shaded area of the main subject. But my version would have splatters in it instead.
I started with a pencil tool I managed to create in Paint Tool SAI. I sketched the overall pose and blocked the parts that needed to be shaded. I chose this pose because its imposing and it has a solid silhouette. Initially, the splatters were to be only within the shades, illustrating the rage from inside. But then I realized that the image look more dynamic when I started putting splatters outside, emanating from his skin.
I’m not sure if I fully captured the image I had in mind but I think it turned out ok. Hope you guys like it.
