Creative Mondays 191 – Deadpool

“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.”

I’m really hoping Ryan Reynolds does some justice to the Deadpool character. I won’t speak of the hideous appearance of the so-called ‘Merc with a Mouth’ in Wolverine: Origins, it just isn’t worth it. So the anticipation is high that they can bring another Rated R Marvel character to the big screen.

Meanwhile, I figured I should give this guy a place in the silhouette collection. Two thumbs way up.

I have to be honest, Ant-Man is not a superhero that is on my radar of superheroes. Even when I heard that Marvel announced an upcoming ‘Ant-Man’ film I barely became interested and again watching the trailers I was still mostly unimpressed. But cynic I may be, I think I’m slowly coming around to the idea of this character. There’s some decent buzz coming out about this film and in juxtaposition from the latest Avengers film (which I felt was a little too big) this tiny-sized hero may be a breath of fresh air!

So needless to say I’ll check out the film and I figured before I go, why not add another Marvel character to the silhouette collection!

It’s been a few weeks since I tackled one of these so the Marvel Character Poster Collection gets another addition! Ororo Munroe, otherwise known as Storm is featured and adds another X-Men to the group. I think this will be my next group to tackle so I’d be happy to take any suggestions as to which mutant I should create!

I’ve been working a great deal on my silhouette style this year but most of it has featured iconic characters within popular culture. This week I figured I’d scrap all that for a change and create a scene made from scratch. There’s certainly more I can add to this technique but I like discovering how far I can push it. I could see something like this being used as a book cover, there’s plenty of potential!

Creative Mondays 177 – Luke and Vader

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do a Star Wars themed piece for today’s Creative Mondays. It is the fourth of May after all. I took some inspiration from one of my favourite scenes in ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and couldn’t help feeling that there might be a few other iconic moments to capture down the road!

Happy Star Wars day folks… May the fourth be with you (sorry I know… I said it).
