Big blue jam by ChristopherStevens Big blue jam by ChristopherStevens
This was a big one. It's huge at 36 by 15 or some such heh. This was a special project for my bro Tim Townsend. All the characters were guys he chose, so if you say "wha?"..ask him :)

It was mostly a prolonged experiment in doing white paint washes on colored paper. The marker is great on this stuff, but the paint is really tricky. I painted and repainted almost every thing on this until I could live with it and as always there's things I still hate. I'd like a mulligan on Joker and Thor for sure.

Anyways, this was a fun piece to work on and it took over two weeks. Not sure how many hours, but I'm guessing in the 80 area.

Prismacolor markers, and white watercolor paint on Canson Mi-Tientes color paper

All characters belong to whoever they belong to.

all of my favorites are represented here. One is missing in my opinion though. Swamp Thing. Its a close race between Wrightsons Swamp Thing and Ploogs Man-Thing though. Brilliant!!!

Thanks. Yeah, I'm a huge Wrightson fan, so I dig Swampy, but I didn't pick these characters heh.

Love that you included Gatchaman in this peace. Being that it's mostly DC and Marvel what made you add Gatchaman ?

Hey Chris. This is a fantastic piece! Can't believe I'm only now coming across this. Talk about being behind the curve. I know the process is a pain, the white just Pops off the colored page! Great work

How have I not seen this until now? Did you do markers first then the paint (gouache or normal water color?)?
Reply
:iconchristopherstevens:
ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2011
Yea, markers first. The paint is a watercolor and pretty tedious on this color paper. That's probably why this is the last color paper piece I've done in a long time. It just takes me forever.

Whar do u mean "white watercolour paint" ? Acrylics, guache may be? Watercolours do not have white paint and they use the white of the paper, pretty much like the ink does. I am confused...Stunning piece though, breathtaking idd ;)

ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2010
Dr. Martin's Bleed Proof White. It's a liquid paint that I dilute to get varying opacity. I treat it like a watercolor, but I guess you'd use a gouache the same way. The jar doesn't specify what medium it is, but I always assumed it was a watercolor.

Thanks BTW.
