It’s been awhile since I posted a piece. I was adding some Bruce Timm images to a Pinterest board, last week, and I found a Spider Woman (Jessica Drew) that he had done. What struck me about was the simplicity. The line from the should to the knee inspired me to take a shot at re-drawing the piece.
I added more detail, moving away from the simplicity that had so inspired me. It worked out though. Usually I go way overboard, and become tired with it. This one was fun to do. It’s nice to get back to my roots, pencil/pen to paper.
I am not one of those detractors of the series who whines about the kid friendly content. The series airs on DISNEY X/D, a children’s network. There has been some silly moments and outright comedic ones this season. The “Inside Man” has very little light hearted humor. It is a dark episode that should make my friends on the Force Center Podcast and Collider’s Jedi Council pretty happy ( some of the aforementioned whiners😁). I have nothing but love for those folks.
Today, my wife surprised me with this awesome gift. She had purchased the graphic from a second hand store. It used to be a T-Shirt. I love how she constructed the background. It makes the 21×16 inch piece pop. It made my already good day 😍
Playing around a bit with my progs last night, and came up with this.
From time to time I enjoy placing myself, much like I did when I was an over imaginative youngling, into the worlds that I enjoyed. While my imagination isn’t up to the same high levels of my former self, I find it relaxing to create myself into old favorites.
I spent a few hours today playing with my “self” portrait in vintage Kenner Star Wars style. I like the Naruto design of the cloths so I stuck with that motif. As I look at it, the face is a bit too over shadowed but I’ll stick with this for now 🙂
