Like Judge Dredd in 2000AD,sits around with his helmet on !! I suppose Bruce Wayne does all his bat thinking with his cowl on !

Tony C. said...

This make me feel better about my staying up WAY too late to draw. Of course, I don't wear a cowl...most of the time.

Great concept, great execution!

Thanks for posting on my blog. You do terrific work, and your digital paintings are very inspirational. Now that I have a Cintiq I'll be studying your work to see what I can learn.

Sebastien Gallego said...

Great lighting Mark! Love this pic.

marcobucci said...

Thanks for the comment, Mark! Although I was hoping I'd find your caveman on here as well - it's sweet-ola! As for that photoshop painting, I found a big picture of a rock surface that had some nice pure colours, ranging from oranges to violets. I set that layer on 'Overlay', and painted b&w on a layer underneath that. That gave me some pretty subtle and appealing hue shifts for free! Then I duplicated the rock texture layer, desaturated it, and set it to multiply over the entire painting, just to give the texture more depth in the dark areas. The actual brush I painted with was just default round. Fun to sketch that way...although it totally felt like cheating. The textures did most of the work.

mackaydesign said...

Wow. Your work is unreal. I love the subtle lighting that still suggests noir but without the expected hard edges. Really effective mood illustrations!
