So… there’s a new movie in town… Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Some people like it, some people hate it. I haven’t seen it. I tend to not see movies until they hit satellite or home video. That’s how I roll! But I was inspired to create a little thing here.
The characters are based on some movie stills of Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman. I was really only interested in doing bust drawings, but I went a little farther… Look ma, no hands! 🙂 Oh, and I realize Wonder Woman and a few other characters are also in the movie… but it was going to get complex fast if I drew everyone, so I just went with the two primary characters. Maybe I’ll draw Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman as her own picture at some point.
It’s all digital, vector art… from start to finish. No preliminary sketches this time. I didn’t time anything, but it felt like it all came together pretty quickly. Either I’m getting better at this OR worse at keeping track of time!
I think I generally captured the look of these recent movie versions. I probably could have worked a little more on the faces… especially the mouths and Superman’s nose… but I think these mostly do the trick.
