Creative Mondays 139 – Doctor Octopus
“What is Creative Mondays?
Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.
So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”
Doctor Otto Octavius, one of Spider-Man’s greatest villains get’s the silhouette style treatment in this week’s Creative Mondays. After doing several superheroes I thought I’d have a crack at a villain and Doctor Octopus has the iconic look that I think applies to this style perfectly.
I built up the imagery in Photoshop but the metallic arms were a little tricky and I decided I could get the necessary detail I needed in Illustrator. For now, I’ll be continuing with the superhero designs but I may throw in a few other villains every now and then.
