    Originally based upon a marvel flyer I scanned some years ago I digitally remade this image to the image you see here - Someone has scanned a similar image you can see in link below

    A real backdrop was originally done for around a Christmas time a couple years back
    [​IMG]

    This image I still have the source version I made of it and 2 earlier versions here -> http://graffikarts.zoomshare.com/0.shtml/MyFanArt (middle one is Image I use to make these


    Scan someone else did of a similar ad of this -> http://joshwitsaman.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/img619.jpg

    In this case of course I based it upon the image it was recreated based upon the solid color guide however NOT the line-art as is almost all my early images
    it is not necessary to credit original artists when there is full alteration involved

    juggertha can ask these questions. he hasn't violated any rules involving questions, nor has he "trolled" you.
    it's up to you if you'd like to answer them, there's also an ignore feature you can use to ignore members you do not wish to communicate with.

    as for crediting sources, it's generally heavily frowned upon to not credit sources/references when an artist bases their work on someone's preexisting work, be it lineart, backdrops, stock resources, etc.
    it's not mandatory or a rule, but it is highly encouraged that everyone does so.

    K he's now on permanent IGNORE

    It took awhile to even find that command did not know it was there. As I pointed out anyone asking that I feel the request is genuine I'd be glad to discuss it - However in case of this scenario it boils down to more a shouting match and trhing to stop a person constantly attacking you on the subject - AND THEN pretty much demanding it's 100% the original persons art

    Questions, and request are fine - Constant nagging, and then jumping THREAD TO THREAD on it is another

    Oh and in the past I added info on some of the basic "sources" however the entire THREADS here get deleted every so many months and can no longer find them (or go to some old database or something)

    Ok my bad - originally all I saw was 2 months of messages everything else dissapeared I had to look through the options to get more - that's my error

    I did find the IGNORE fore example however it takes hitting many options til you find it

    Also going to show how I do some of the OLDER art and some of my techniques

    Like said above a remake of the images found here -> http://graffikarts.zoomshare.com/0.shtml/NewWorks

    Based upon a line-art image of marvel zombies #4 I believe it is similar to this -> http://www.nocreoqueseasreal.pe/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/blz02-03.jpg

    All work is mine on first image but it is based on a similar image in this old case the template is used for main characters

    In this case I am redoing the character structure to modernize the images to my more modern techniqes here is a sample on how I first cut the images into sample areas

    STEP 1) http://s516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/?action=view&current=MarvelZombies-sample.jpg


    Reason for separate colors (and solid) is to allow quick selection of areas

    Next I am going to show how I create some of the skin areas on Wolverine

    STEP 2) http://s516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/?action=view&current=sample-11111.jpg

    Basically selecting all skin areas except nose (done separately for more detail or if I decide to make it a socket or something

    While not going into detail applying various forms of shadowing - green skin (for being undead) some dried blood and more

    by the wy this was done while posting this message

    Other steps later involve (not shown) sometimes applying real materials like metal, applyin additional shadowing repeating these steps on different sections then blurring during finals

    when finished (not going to finish this today) should look like a Zombie wolverine in 2d-3d based upon my art

    As mentioned before there is no line art in these images anymore they are reconstructed

    Modern images like thor, iron man, hawkeye did not use templates likke this
    This is based upon a template - it is NOT that template

    http://s516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/?action=view&current=sample-2222222.jpg more of this image - that's all of that it's just a sample it will be completely redone it is to get ideas on how people like the theme / design etc before I attempt some other features and things on it

    Now, now. You know that's not true. You're accusing me of violating the forum rules... and I've got no warnings/bannings at all. So unless you're privy to something I'm not, please don't accuse me of getting in trouble - when I did not. The posts in question were deleted because they veered off-topic in regards to the thread, NOT because they were trolling.

    I asked you about colouring over other people's lines then, because I knew the artist, and I knew he did not give you permission to enter it into an art contest.

    I ask about the other things in this thread, because I'd like to know where they come from. No mystery - I like the form of that Spidey and want to know who drew it.

    On your website you claim to have worked on nearly every major title.

    So i figure with all of that experience in professional cirlces, it'd be no problem to credit/source the lines you're colouring.

    Really, it's not a big deal. It's an easy answer.

    As for me "trolling you", look at my language here. I'm civil, and simply asking a question. It might not be something you like, but you can't say that it's trolling.

    Hawkeye a recent image was created using this template -> http://s516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/?action=view&current=Hawkeye-template.jpg (though originally in tif format)
    and some slight modifications to it basically doing a similar theme to the movie scene in above left
    Only real montage I used was his chest area where i sed black leather and colored it to color you see rest is all digital art

    Iron man (both versions the team shot and the single shot) Is based upoin this template -> http://s516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/?action=view&current=IronMan-template.jpg
    again changes occured before the final like extending the leg to the left and again tif format originally
    Iron man used two pictures of actual metal imagry colored in the colors of the final, selectively shadowed and arranged to the final images you see in the iron man picture earlier

    The iron man is based on the design of the statue to the right

    THOR is based upon this template -> http://s516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/?action=view&current=Thor-template.jpg

    Again early sample I don't have later that was not applied over
    using a similar costume to the statue, and similar helmet metal like the
    bucket on the left was sed in the metal parts, a red curtain for his cape, black leather images for various parts real metal images for the helmet though based on the template
    all digital art for pants and legs etc with shadowing added along the way

    Thors arms were covered in a Metal chain imagry (I forget the source of this)

    Hammer was done last as was cape - hammer is images of real pitted metal
    Pretty much anything else digital art - face hair added later

    Captain america is based upon this template -> http://s516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/?action=view&current=cap-template.jpg
    As with above earliest template I have
    And based on a similar design as seen in pic of artist upper left, and similar costume to the Captain America movie (most recent)
    The Shield was made from an image of a metal sheet found earlier in this thread.
    I used real military belt imagry for the red chest belts - black leather with threading imagry for many of the straps above those belt - The Ble upper costume is actally chain links (circular) liberally shadowed and colored blue
    The Belt area all digital art

    The glove and boots were real gloves and boots digitally distorted, and colored the colors you see plus a real belt image applied to the glove

    Pretty much everything else is digital art

    I know boring info - just if people would like to know how this stuff is made :) I do not always use montage it is a bit of a mixture

    http://s516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/?action=view&current=IronMan-template2.jpg

    is a quick redoing of Iron mans faceplate showing how it was done, and several earlier choices I did (this went through a lot of changes)

    In the main image shows a New faceplate

    where 1 is is the original image used it was altered to a green-yellow combo, and placed in the various areas of the template

    Shadowing applied . taking "best guess" on where to place each section based on the sdhadowing of original collage Sometimes I do not add any shadowing at all - I feel it's perfect as is, otherwise apply a little shaddowing - hightones

    "2 earlier choices" images are 2 I tried first they seemed all wrong, and 2 different metal pieces

    the one marked "1 used" is one that got into the final draft it is based upon the item marked "2" which was originally a metal colored pot

    The same pot image was used in the arms, and legs of the final iron man - a different metal was used in the red areas

    also the esign was altered as I went

    IMPORTANT NOTE - while another persons image is often used Alteration does in fact take place - These are no longer the original items I have only been supplying some original images as education sources

    Further note - even if there is similarities of old images Enough alteration takes place to call artwork all of my own - I will often give credit, where credit is due - however claiming said art is 100 % the work of another is wrong, and unacceptable

    While this may change I am currently working on a Marvel zombies based on an old image I made
    Two samples of the helmet so far to see how people like it

    Sample 1 - Simple -> http://i516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/face-0001.jpg

    sample 2 - Advanced -> http://i516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/face-0002.jpg

    In both cases using real metal imagry though the first one is simpler
    a real face found on net several years ago slightly altered

    This image is based on a comic page of Marvel Zombies #4 and will be galactus attacking about 6 heroes -

    of course solid areas are where art will be placed

    [​IMG]

    Based upon a coloring page at ->http://spidermancoloring.blogspot.com/2011/03/spiderman-colouring-book-pages-to-print.html

    This should be a 2d style representation of it when I'm done (not sure when) Some alterations are taking place but it is the same basic concept design as the coloring image - sing a real backdrop - this is more for practice right now

    It also could be used for other spiderman costumes - meant as a shoot a bad-guy at the street with webbing image I'll add updates as available

I - no line art is used - however it is based upon the original line-art of marvel zombies #3 - which is slightly different than thne published version

    I like your colors! FYI I tried to follow the link to your site that Juggertha posted and my antivirus warned me that MAL/html Gen-a has been found on your site.

    While it's only a demo so far - it's being redone trying to make more accuracy to a movie costume (or my vision of it) Ignore solid block areas - this is where art is applied and is my template areas - Note this is part Photo [​IMG]
    One of the metal choices I did on his helmet - though probably going to change it

    [​IMG]

    note these are rough drafts will post completed one here when done - comments / suggestions welcome within reason (had irate poster before)

    Older version of thor located here -> http://i516.photobucket.com/albums/u322/grafffik/RandomArt/THOR.jpg
    if wishing full image size go here -> http://s516.photobucket.com/user/grafffik/media/RandomArt/THOR.jpg.html?sort=4&o=56 click the DOWNLOAD - sorry they don't show full res on site good for a background image :)
