More on the progress of my AIDS WALK 2014 poster.
It’s become my guinea pig for Illustrator.
Still lots to get used to, but I’m a bit of masochist when it comes to learning, so I’m driving in head first.
To answer northstarfan ‘s question:
I included Wanda and Billy, most importantly, as representatives of unconditional love and support. Like the AIDS walk, it’s not just for those intimately effected, but for those who care as well. They are my favorite Mother and Son of comicdom. As characters, and together, they bring to the table something more contemporary and relevant than Sue and Franklin. Raven and Kurt…just no. The Summer’s kids are all from alternate realities.
Lastly, their esthetic: Red.
Honestly enjoying this.
Princess Ariel of the 80’s cartoon: Thundarr the Barbarian made it into our Art Nouveau series. Her original design is much more simplistic, but her grace and strength of character hopefully come through and own the page.
Tula, from the Pirates of Dark Water cartoon, was a must for our Art Nouveau series. Her design required no embellishments or tweeks and her Ecomancing abilities made for really fun foliage design.
Had to include The Silverhawk, SteelHeart in the Art Nouveau project. There aren’t any swirls, tresses, or frills to her…well, that and she doesn’t come across as someone who wears dresses…but had to try to make it work.
Much loves for her GORGE twin brother ; SteelWill; squeezed him into the background.
Next in our Art Nouveau series is : CHEETARA!
The ruling 80’s cartoon Diva! She runs the world…not all 80’s cartoon character are very recognizable…but everyone knows Cheetara some how!
Looking forward to finishing these up!
A piece for our new Art Nouveau project.
Line art of Octavia, from the 80’s TV cartoon: TigerSharks. Colors to come. Any of you remember the show?
