BLACK TARANTULA/ WHITE TIGER






















Looks like i'm on a Daredevil buzz again. To be honest, between this and The Hand piece that i did a few weeks ago, i'm really just working towards doing a good Daredevil piece in the near future. So, in the meantime, this is Black Tarantula and White Tiger, two supporting characters currently in the comic.

I wanted to colour up this bad boy so i thought i'd play around with coloured half-tone again. Also, i added a *tiny* bit of rendering. Decided to try see if black splatter turned white in colour would work too. I think it turned out pretty well in the end.

Very nice portrait of the current supporting characters. I'll be watching for your Daredevil piece, that's for certain.

Be honest Dec. You just used your own white splatter didnt you!

Edward Kaye said...

Hell! That looks amazing!

Excellent atmosphere there Dec, a lot've it down to the nice, moody colour-choices.
Really would love to see you on Daredevil some day, it fits you like a glove.

Are those fingerprints I see?

The sky and building silhouettes are working very nicely in the composition. That goes for the color palette too.

Chris said...

Looks great, sir!!

Declan Shalvey said...

Thanks folks,

Lauren, yeah, there's fingerprints there alright. Saw someone else do it; stole it. I use prints a lot, but rarely as obvious as say, on the bricks in this piece.

That technique's gonna come back and bite you on the ass when the cops use your artwork to identify you for one of your nefarious sex-crimes.

Declan Shalvey said...

Ix nay on the ex-crimes say.

Dude, sort out your signature, it looks like it says Declan Shalvey 1/10, like one of ten. When it's clearly a 6 out of 10 piece.

Declan Shalvey said...

Heh, yer dead right Bob; i never noticed that. 6 out of 10 is a bit generous, mind.

Reverse spatter stars are nice but the brick texture is my favourite bit.
