Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 271

Gouache, watercolor, and acrylic on bristol board, 13 × 19″.

The Marvel 75th anniversary Special #1 hits shelves today. (You can read more about it here.) I was tasked with painting a young Peter Parker, so what better way to do that than by dressing up like Harry Potter. Obviously, a lot of other reference went into this painting, but I'll have to share it all at a later date.

In related news, you'll be able to see a step-by-step breakdown of the entire painting in Modern Masters Volume 30: Paolo Rivera, due out in January from TwoMorrows Publishing. It will include an extensive interview and tons of process art — you know I love to share.

Madman 3D Special!

Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

If there is a royal family of comics, it must be the Allreds. It would be nigh-impossible to find a couple with more talent, drive, and all-around awesomeness. I'm very happy to say that they invited me to be part of the family with the Madman 3D Special, which will be out next month, right before Thanksgiving. My contribution, along with all the art in the book, will be converted to 3 groovy dimensions. I'll post a reminder — and a behind-the-scenes look — when the book finally hits shelves.

NYCC 2014 — Joker

JOKER. 2014. Ink & watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

Issue 2 of The Valiant is nearly done, and several sites have posted an extensive art preview. In addition, Bleeding Cool has an exclusive look at my process for 4 of the digital pages from issue 1 (done in Photoshop with Kyle T. Webster's brushes). I'll have to save a full explanation for a later date, but those familiar with my previous posts will recognize the tried-and-true steps. Below is a traditional page, inked by my Dad, and colored in Photoshop.

And if you haven't had enough of The Valiant yet, here are 2 different interviews, Newsarama and CBR. Have a great weekend!
