    comrade hero



    I saw the original colours to this one by kieran oats and immediately went *holy crap!! - how'd the heck did he do *that* bit (the clouds) and then ....how'd he do *that bit*? (the body colours of the CH himself)... and then again...(the smoke cloud)..* well you get the idea...

    It took me 7 hours and 3 attempts to get the background looking semi-decent. Most attempts turned into smudgy blurred messes. The smoke cloud though was really easy and I can see that's how I'm going to be colouring those sorts of things in the future!

    So I got onto supermaorifulla on deviantart.com for which CH is his original character and asked him if he had the high res inks... which he did.

    So putting aside the alvin lee chun li pic that I was in the middle of flatting I set to this one, simply to get it out of my head! :P Plus my wife comes from one of the former USSR republics and so I've always wanted to do a soviet/USSR based hero-type. The Russian at the bottom says "Comrade Hero"... roughly. My wife helped me with that bit! :P

    anyway..

    Nicely done Sean...like the rich reds on this though the lighting looks off on his face...shouldnt the flag be blocking it?if there is another source on the side then his glove should have a bit of highlights to match.

    Isn't that first word Tovarisch?

    Yeah the 1st word is Tovarisch. My russian is very rusty but the second word is just hero. Well closest phonetic the Cyrillic alphabet can come to the word hero.

    background is a bunch of stuff. Mostly a sunset photo that has been tweaked folded spindled and mutilated but also some painting over the top of it all and a bunch of various gradient fills set to various modes.

    here's another (much better IMO ) CH where the clouds are purely painted -->

    Cool. Both of these artists are really good. I'll have to check out their stuff.
    Money can't buy you happiness, but it will pay for the search.
