Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 416

20 days ago   |   By Paolo Rivera

Here's yet another peek at the reference behind the Justice League: Classic poster. There was just so much that went into it, I've been breaking it down figure by figure. Since, the Atom didn't have an analogue in the modern version, I had to acquire some new reference. The Light probes and action figure were more of a general reference for the entire scene, which is why he's missing some of the highlights in the final rendering. I figured that Wonder Woman would've blocked most of the rim lighting.

This already came out in July, but it was the first of 6 connecting covers. You can get all the details at Image Comics. Once the last issue is out ( 48), I'll have some signed sets to sell in my shop.

THE WALKING DEAD 44 VARIANT COVER. 2022.
Gouache & acrylic on illustration board , 11 × 17″.
Here's the second of 6 connecting covers for The Walking Dead Deluxe. These were all penciled together in a giant Photoshop file and printed out individually onto Strathmore illustration board. I tried my best to make them connect in real life, but it required about an hour of Photoshop editing to make it work. I also made a rookie-level mistake that would come to haunt me toward the end of the project. I'll detail that once we get to 47.

THE WALKING DEAD 45 VARIANT COVER. 2022.
Gouache & acrylic on illustration board , 11 × 17″.
My last connecting cover for The Walking Dead Deluxe is out today, but here's a look at the process behind 45. I use a desktop cardboard background to stage my props, lit with a Lume Cube Panel Mini. I've also been trying to learn Blender for simple lighting setups (and to take advantage of my many models from 3D Scan Store .

THE WALKING DEAD 46 VARIANT COVER. 2022.
Gouache & acrylic on illustration board , 11 × 17″. This cover was tough for a couple reasons. By this point in the series, I had already established the main visual theme, that of pure white as a representation of something lost. Sometimes that was teeth, other times, bullets. (For those of you who are behind, spoilers below...)
All my initial sketches involved a missing head, but I wanted to give Tyreese something with a bit more dignity. Late one night, it occurred to me that I could just flip it - I could paint a nice, stately portrait of him...

THE WALKING DEAD 47 VARIANT COVER. 2022.
Gouache & acrylic on illustration board , 11 × 17″.
Here's some behind-the-scenes reference for The Walking Dead 47. I'll often take reference from 2 different faces in order to get something unique. But every once in a while, I'll get just the right look from a single model.
This issue is already in stores, full details here. I'll also have some signed copies of the series in my shop soon... just need to get my act together!
