Every visual artist has his or her "thing"; that one genre or imagery they're drawn to. For some it's giant Mecha, for others sword and sorcery and for many others it's superheroes. Regular readers of this blog know what my "thing" is: the Mexican masked wrestlers in whatever media they appear in. I have a great deal of love for the American superheroes of my youth. I just don't know if I have anything to say with them. The above image is the first step in the process. At this point my concern is with creating a good composition and to depict the figures as best as I can. Gesture, shape and form before detail is the rule here.
