Die Fledermaus & Übermensch
These were a fun exercise in creating really quick illustrations. This was a challenge done with my friend and fellow artist, Vincent Nappi. The idea is to take two very iconic superheroes and revisit them in a more 19th century European setting. My approach was more true to archetype, with a few changes here and there. Both characters wear a more traditional 19th century war uniform, and have a different look to their overall silhouette.
Overall, this challenge forced me to make big decisions and work quickly. There is a lot of potential when limits are set. A good learning experience.
Both images are 10 X 13 inches and done in pencil and mixed media.
