Hellboy oils by ChristopherStevens Hellboy oils by ChristopherStevens
Another Hellboy. He's just a fun subject. Anyways, this was my first painting on stretched linen. It's a great surface for painting. It has a finer tooth than canvas so if you don't like the heavy texture of canvas, this might be the way to go for you.

Oils on stretched linen.

Heh, HB was a fave of mine - is this a take on the classic cover art composition? Beautiful work

Not exactly. It's just my take on the Mignola style Hellboy layouts. They're all kinda the same, but different if you know what I mean.

damn bro. this is damn near beautiful.
i know you said this is oil, but it almost looks like a water medium in places.
i.e.,...some of the textures look like watermarks.
love the subdued color palette.
also, hellboy rocks.
very cool.

Another great piece. Great blending, and choice of colors, and composition.

If you were doing work for Warren Publishing during the days ( 70's ), I'd have your posters on my wall.

Thank you very much. It's been fun for me too. I'm still at the stage where almost everything I do is an experiment and the first time I'm trying something. I'll definitely keep at it.

looks absolutely amazing~! I like painting on stretched linen a lot more, although it's more expensive (cry*)

just wondering, how long did it take you?
