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 decided to join in … and we both had the idea to go hip hop. I think hers has a real KE$HA vibe. Mine, sadly, looks like what a mid-30s dude’s idea is of hip hop attire. (Pssst! Don’t use the word “attire, dude.”)
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.
