Okay, so I have no freehand artistic talent at all, but I'm not bad at mucking about with Photoshop. Of late I've been working on superheroines - all based on photos of the same model, because I've got a bunch of photos of her with universal soft light and pure white backgrounds (i.e. very easy to muck about with in Photoshop), and as the guy in My Fair Lady says, I've grown accustomed to her face. I guess it's a bit eccentric to have a collection of superheroines all with the same face (rather like that guy in The Living Daylights, with all the statues) but it wouldn't be the first time it's been pointed out that I'm odd. (For those curious, she's Aria Giovanni - typically nekkid in front of a camera, but safe for work/kiddies in all these pics thanks to the magic of Photoshop.) Anyway, onward.
First one I did, Ms Marvel. A bit rough around the edges, but it turned out well enough, and I enjoyed the effort. The sash was edited in (and yes, I should have done it better, with shadows and stuff - we live and learn), but the rest was created from scratch - I think the lightning bolt turned out pretty neat.
Next up, Spider-Woman - not a character I've read much about (I had to Google for reference pics), but for some reason she just popped into my head when I thought about who to do next. I think she turned out a bit 'flat-colour-y,' but I was still learning.
This was one I really enjoyed turning out, especially the stitching on her costume, and the flares on her boots and gloves. The cape and that cord attached to her shoulder armour are edited in, the rest is newly-created. The soles of her boots could've used more work, admittedly.
Obviously there was no way I wasn't going to do a She-Hulk image, even though the muscular physique is missing.
I just discovered the images-per-post limit, so I'll continue next post.
