Avengers Assemble! Part 1

I'm working on a big painting that will feature portraits of all the avengers from the film (as well as the villain). It will be fun once I get all of these sketches done! I've got 1 more avenger  ( Bruce Banner) and the villain (Loki - in progress) to go before I can compile them all into one large composition for my painting.

Here are some early rough sketches of the portraits I've finished so far in a collage. :)

Cartoon break!

Ever since I first laid eyes on the character and actor who portrays Loki (Tom Hiddleson) in "The Avengers" (and "Thor"), I've loved him. Honestly, he's just too cute that even though he's supposed to be a tortured, evil soul, you just want to hug him and then slap him for being a jerk.

Just a little sketch I did.

Snippet, whippet, that one doesn't work.

Eh, so my lack of sleep is getting to me but I have been productive so it's all good in my book.

I decided to take the canvas sketch I did, do a basic color blocking on the actual canvas and then upload it to put the finishing touches on it via the magical tool, Photoshop.

I'm about...2/3 of the way finished but I decided to post a little peek into a section I recently finished.

Ok, time to tackle the basics with canvas and acrylics. It's been at least a year since I've worked with acrylics, which is odd since I love the medium.

For this first venture back into traditional media, I've decided to do a portrait of the actor, Michael Fassbender (from movies such as Prometheus, Shame, X-Men:First Class, Inglorious Basterds, etc)

This is a pencil pre-sketch on canvas (12 x 12) that will later be covered within its life with acrylic.

Tomorrow, I begin!
