As part of an ongoing series of posters featuring some of the more iconic super heroes, and villains, from the Marvel Universe we present the latest painting – Wolverine.

Starting with a basic drawing of the costume in illustrator, we are able to define the proportions we need in the series. Once that is established, we take the file and begin working in Photoshop for the painting portion of the illustration.

Once imported into Photoshop, we start adding textures, patterns and begin working on the depth of the painting. This involves lots of layers and painting as well as a limited use of displacement maps.
