ULTRAMAN

Here be a picture of Ultraman that I drew for our (and by ‘our’ I mean some of my fellow Glyndwr Universtity post-grad chums) new Tumblr ‘Lines Of Work’ which you can find by following the link. In pretty much the exact same way as the WeDrawStuff blog, this is a little project to keep us fresh, keep us drawing, and keep us in contact with each other, and is updated fortnightly with a new theme – this week’s being ‘Superman Villains’

Notes:

I’m really pleased with this piece – having never drawn Supes before I found that I suddenly REALLY wanted to, so to keep with the theme I chose the evil alternate version of Superman, ‘Ultraman’, and after a quick google search chose this costume as my favourite (there were a few variants). I went very heavy on the shadows with this one, and in someways not heavy enough – the idea was to keep the character as clean and simple as possible to help with the monotone colour scheme I had in mind, but by adding so many small shadows I’ve gone a long way to highlight my slightly dodgy idea of superhero anatomy… perhaps a flatter shadow would have done a better job to cover this up. All the same, I think it actually looks great, and the city background and slightly art-deco like font really help tie it all together. I’d like to make this into a tee, but I’m not sure that I’d be allowed :/
