Venom by AndrewTunney Venom by AndrewTunney
Venom in 'supervillain needless posturing situation no1.' :)
well, this was a journey. the sketch took about 2 seconds but the colouring was a mission.
i did 2 versions in painter, 2 in photoshop - all with meticulously painted muscle and gristle..then i sacked that off and painted it black. as usal, the black one looks best. it totally wasn't what i was going for but i like it anyway.
ive been trying for ages to get a real grainy, sunlit new york feel for my spider-man pictures but could never do it. the closest i got was in my Wankstas piece with the BG so i learnt from that and threw in some more trickery id learnt along the way and Shazam! here you go.
course that wasn't the plan until like half-way through the piece but you don't need to know that...

awsome at the bottom all those lines? is that a brush set an dif so where did u get it?

some of them are brushes, some are inks and some are wacom lines i did in photoshop. i use a combination of pretty much everything on all my pieces now.

and the brush set is something like 'random swirls' or something - from DA resourcses
