Wolverine watercolor painting



 It's been a while since I created a new painting, so last night I sat down and forced myself to create something... and I'm actually pretty happy with the way it turned out.  It took me around 5 hours from start to finish.

I have always been a bit of a comic book dork.  Wolverine was always my favorite character, so I had to try him.

I think I may have goofed a little bit on his mouth but I like the way the eyes turned out!  What do you think?

I am going to try to get back into creating something artistic every week... I hope I can stand by that!  I always feel so much better and less stressed out after creating something new.

A couple progress shots

Do you like comic books or the comic book movies??  If so, who is your favorite character?

  10. Wow you did an amazing job. I love Wolverine too, and I don't think you messed up on the mouth at all. Even if you were working from a photo and it wasn't exactly the same, so what? The end result really captured him. Also very interesting to see the progress pics.
