Robin Desktop Wallpaper

Another desktop wallpaper.

I'm a big Robin fan and especially the Teen Titans leader era with George Perez's detailed artwork.

More wallpapers

Well I have had some fun with these. Superman and Green Lantern complete my little logo series for now. I have some others to do and will post them time permitting. This exercise reminds me when I first started drawing taking inspiration from the comics and trying to figure out just how my drawing of the character would differentiate itself from the source.

For Superman I shied away from the over beveled look of the recent Superman Returns movie. The fact that Superman is invulnerable, having some sort of hard shield is moot. I tried to make the two colors (red and yellow) appear different in makeup. The yellow catches the light more than the red stuff. Finding the red was a challenge, not too red and neon, but not too dark either. I think it works.

For GL I tried to approximate the power of the ring in the logo. The newer comics have little green willpower logos spilling out of his symbol. Considering the costume is a fabrication of the willpower from the ring the emblem could take on different appearance than say plastic or cloth. His emblem also casts a faint glow of power.

Another wallpaper

Well I had fun the other day doing the Flash background. I decided to take a crack at Batman. So here is a couple wallpapers to download if you like them. I created them for my 24" iMac so they are pretty big. I created these in Photoshop from scratch-no quicky layer effects here.

As for the subject matter. Superheroes are my interest. I was inspired by a thumbnail image of a similar Flash symbol. For the sake of the exercise I started over with many layers in PS. It is fun trying to think about the surfaces and the way light might react to them. Let me know if you like them.
