I know its been a long wait for some of you art fans out there; but it’s great to be back into the mode of art. Here he is!! The Mighty Thor makes it’s appearance for you enjoy.
As of right now I’m calling the steps “Lightning Strikes”!! Yes; what a title for each one. Not yet complete, but felt a good teaser would be great for the moment!
The face was the initial Lightning strike as it set the tone for the rest of the piece.
The arm included a lot of detail as I had to used careful measurements to make every piece of the puzzle accurate. It was quite an enjoyable task.
Note that the arm and the chest piece gives it a kind of a 3-d appearance to distinguish the two different parts of the body.
As I continue to work in each area, I also worked on the black background. As of right now I have used ten black color pencils. They are all Prismacolor as well as different tones of gray. Final piece coming up soon!! Stay tuned!!
I believe I used a total of twenty two black color pencils. Quite possibly my second drawing with the most dark background. A very enjoyable drawing to put together. Of course the touches of gray gives it that shiny black and white look. What do you think art fans? Does “Thor” measure up to the artistic look of either “Iron Man” or the “Joker”?
Before completing the final lightning strike I decided to take one more photograph before completion. The contrast I think its quite striking and the red cape gives it a more domineering display. Once I completed it I ran across to one of the most challenging tasks; “The Letters”. What to say and what to put together? I decided to keep it within the Spanish theme. Marvel, comic books and movies are universal; so the decision came to keep it within the beauty of the Spanish language.
The final piece is complete for you Art fans to enjoy. Of course you aficionados know the movie release was May of this year (No; that has nothing to do with Mayo) and putting the release date on top displays a more powerful glance. The movie motto was “COURAGE IS IMMORTAL.” I think “EL VALOR NUNCA MUERE” (COURAGE NEVER DIES) demonstrates a more of a role model to everyday life’s motivation.

Who is your favorite Super-heroe or Super-villian?
I used different tones of gray to give the mask a shiny metal appearance.
The color contrast from light to shade makes the eyes stan out more.
The hand was the most detailed part of the drawing as each finger had to perfect.
I combined the reds with different tones of brown to display a more solid view.
One of the most fascinating steps in completing both Dark Knight and Iron Man was the foggy background effect. I simply used cotton and rubbed Prismacolor led on the poster board paper.
As you could see how the background fades from the foreground of the Joker.
Part two was before adding the letters.
One of my students gave me the idea of creating the movie poster in Spanish. Being a comic book fan; both are a representation and appreciation of two great films.
