It’s almost here! Deadpool will be in theatres soon and to celebrate, I decided to give the Merc with a Mouth his due with a speed painting!
Time: 3H 02M
As you can see, I decided to throw in Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead into the mix as well! Originally, I planned to go with Deadpool solo but the piece felt really lonely and to be honest, I didn’t think I could pull it off with him lifting it up by his lonesome.
Deadpool’s best as a character when he’s riffing off others, so that too made it an easy decision to throw these two into the composition. Of course, we’re all looking forward to when Deadpool meets up with Cable but that’s a speed painting for the sequel ;) Based on the trailers, I think this trio’s dynamic is gonna be really entertaining to watch and I’m really looking forward to it.
Watch the process here!
Composition wise, I kept things simple and gave everyone their proper poses. Colossus was left stoic while NTW wears her emotions on her sleeve...or lack thereof. Style wise, I went with something stark and comic influenced, and left the exploration of previous styles for another day. Color was played down for the most part, and application is a tad bit painterly opposed to a traditional comic approach. Hopefully that made the piece more interesting.
When it came to the background, I thought maybe a simple explosion would work but I had to Deadpoolify it up...And thus, exploding chimichangas became a thing! Turns out drawing food is a ton of food and to no one’s surprise really makes you hungry!
So there you have it! Deadpool and company complete! On to the next illustration...and here’s a hint: In honor of Valentine’s day, it’ll be a couple from a very popular show that’ll soon return to air...
