Demona Creation Video

I haven’t done a video of me working on a piece in a while as it takes a long time to edit together, but I recorded enough small snippets of me creating my recent Demona/Gargoyles concept to put together a short video of the process. Enjoy the show!

Gargoyles Demona Concept

demona_sample

Without doubt Gargoyles was one of the best animated shows of the 90’s, maybe second only to Batman The Animated series, so it’s surprising to me Disney hasn’t tried to get make a movie out of this series, especially with all the nostalgia marketed movies that are being made nowadays. This concept is of the character Demona which is well and truly the most difficult manip I’ve even completed, something close to 30 hours of work in total putting her together.  I imagine if something like this was to ever get off the ground it would have to be a combination of practical effects and CG effects.  I’m going to leave the actresses face a mystery, no real reasons for why I picked her, just wanted to see if people could figure it out. Feel free to speculate who it may be.😉  Full image below.

Daisy Ridley as Lara Croft Concept

lara_croft2

So rumour surfaced late last week that Daisy Ridley might be in line for the Tomb Raider film reboot, so I decided to create a manip of her in the style of the most recent Lara Croft game that was released a few years back.  About 8 hours in total to create.  Personally I think Daisy would make a great Lara Croft.:)

Wonder Woman – Dawn of Justice illustration

Hello all!  This has been a project I’ve been working on in my spare time over the last 6 months.  It was a slow process due to work and life getting in the way, as well as being a lot of repainting as I was working outside my comfort zone using airbrushing instead of acrylic paints.  Made a slight change this morning to add a new background to be more inline with the Wonder Woman promo image that got released yesterday.  I may turn this into a series of 3 featuring Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.  About 35 hours of work in total.

Batman v Superman – Batgirl Concept

So rumour surfaced a few days back that Jena Malone’s secret role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may very well be Barbara Gordon (possibly as Oracle).  So naturally the idea popped in my head to whip up a possible look for Batgirl in the DC movie universe using Jena as the model.  Given this DC movie universe is adhering more to comic book designs for its costumes I followed along the same lines giving her yellow/gold accents to her costume similar to what she’s traditionally had in the comics.  The Robin suit in the Batman v Superman trailer seemed to have the same texture as the Batman suit so for consistency I used the same texture for her.  Also altered the logo slightly and the belt to be a bit different to Batman’s.  About 12 hours of work in total. batgirl_bvs

The base for this concept was a promo image from The Hunger Games and the textures from some shots of the new Batsuit.

Phase 2 Lady Avengers Wallpaper

So something of a happy accident occurred in the making of my Phase 2 Lady Avengers series that I didn’t notice until today and that was I created them all with the light coming from a similar direction.  With all the images having a similar lighting direction it gave me the perfect opportunity to combine all four pieces together to create a massive group image.  Only some slight tinkering was required for each character in order to put this together, a couple had to be flipped around and a few body parts here and there moved.  The character placement wasn’t easy especially with Lady Hulk taking up so much real estate.  The lighting doesn’t match perfectly because I never intended for there to be a group shot, but it’s good enough for the purpose of being a desktop wallpaper.  Enjoy!

If Women Ruled the Earth – Age of Ultron Edition: Iron Maiden

The final of the four main Phase 2 Lady Avengers is Iron Maiden, again portrayed by Sandra Bullock.  The last one was a bit of a mishmash of Iron Man suits cobbled together, this time around I specifically tried to remain faithful to the Mark 43 suit in Age of Ultron as much as possible.  Probably about 7 hours of work involved with this one.  This is all the artwork for this particular series I have planned for the moment due to time constraints, but should some more free time come my way I may do a few more.
