THE CLASSIC MARVEL FIGURINE COLLECTION - Owl Artwork

On the Classic Marvel Figurine Collection blog we were shown a great step by step process of creating artwork for the magazine, with the line-art posted for the inside cover. The editor mentioned he created the artwork in about 1-2 hours, so I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could create something similar in the same space of time.


So this is my attempt. It is quite rough and I didn't bother with any shading. The contents box is just a copy and paste from the actual artwork posted, but the artwork itself was around an hour to complete. I choose against textures like the editor used, as I thought the inks defined the texture of objects enough. I also just re-used an old background I had for a previous piece of artwork...so a little cheat there, but altogether for 1 hour I didn't think it looked too bad.

Action figure collecting can be a great way to reconnect with your youth, celebrate a favorite comic book character or movie hero and possibly, if you play your cards right, become a lucrative investment for the future.
