It’s hard to believe it, but this time next week, we’ll have enjoyed the first day of HeroesCon. (Okay … we’re really excited.)
Two folks we’re really looking forward to seeing are Joe Quinonesand Maris Wicks. Apart, they’re awesome. Together? It’s hard to imagine that must amazing working in one studio at the same time. The girls and I had fun rummaging around their blogs for inspiration … and you should, too.
And, now a word from Joe!
@5MinuteMarvels Great stuff! Thanks for sending it along. We'll see you next week at Heroes!
Grace and I have been working on anatomy for a while now, so we decided to work on facial expressions. Artist Joe Quinones has an amazing way of capturing a wealth of emotion in his characters’ faces.
On his Web site, he takes pains to demonstrate how he uses photography of himself and his friends, including artist Maris Wicks, to guide his work. Joe’s work provides great inspiration if you’re working in the art of faces.
If you haven’t seen Joe’s work for Marvel and DC (Notably his Green Lantern strips for Wednesday’s Comics), swing on over to his “interweb blog” and get great insight into how he works.
It’s only been a few days since we received an amazing Superman piece by our new Pal, Matt Hughes, from Swansea in the UK. Today, we are proud to share two fantastic sketches from his daughters, Lorien and Elinor — Bat-Mite and Harley Quinn, two of our favorite residents of the Bat-Verse.
Here at 5MM, we have just a little bit of a soft spot for fathers drawing with their daughters. So, keep it comin’, Hughes family!
So, it’s taken us a while to get here … but a counselor at Grace’s day camp requested she draw The Joker. Eager to oblidge … and always interested in a character’s love life, Grace was more than game to draw the Joker’s therapist turned partner-in-crime, Harley Quinn!
