Ode to the Metabarons by bear65 Ode to the Metabarons by bear65
This was a lot of fun to do. I learned a lot in the process, must keep going! I looked at Frank Frazetta and my Metabaron comics by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Juan Gimenez for inspiration.

Photoshop.

I have yet to read the Metabarons, but you've managed to capture the feel of it rather nicely. So excellent work!

How is it I hadn't seen this looking for Metabarons fan art or inspired art? I'm also a big fan of the comic, I love this picture of yours.

Hmmm.. I can't help thinking that the background gradient is kind of weird; the background is dark and the top, light in the middle and dark at the bottom. Shouldn't it start off light near the top and gradually get darker?

Kudos on the color choice. The bright colors really stand out, and her armor looks lovely.

Juan Gimenez is amazing. I can't believe he can paint comics the way he does, it's godly.

I hadn't seen the Metabarons before reading the origin books by Gimenez, but I can say the world he has helped create is amazing.

that guy could make magic, need to learn more form him. he creates a lot of tension with how his figures are positioned. always caught in a moment, not really posed. i need to try that.

Yeah, I recently got the book, Frazetta:Rough work. It has a lot of his developmental sketches in there, and it's very interesting to see what he changed and didn't change in his final paintings.

i don't think i've seen anything quite like this from you before B! very cool and impressive that its all Photoshop. i like the pops of neon in the fore/mid ground while the bg is very watercolor-y....sorry started my online classes at SCAD and i'm all in critique mode

I'm about half way through the semester with Illustration Techniques and Design Methodology. And just registered for Typography and Drawing for Illustrators. So far so good, it takes some getting used to but you still get a great level of support and feedback, small class size, intelligent professors, so still SCAD quality.
