Daily Creativity: AKA Rory – Jessica Jones Rory Mashup
Jessica Jones is an amazing character but figuring out how to have Rory portray her was a bit difficult. Unlike many other superheroes Jessica doesn’t have a real costume, and anyone could be rearing jeans and a biker jacket, right? So I styled this one after the cover style I most think of when I think of the Alias & following comics. The washed out watercolor look. If you are a fan of the Netflix show you will notice that the opening credits also makes a nod to these covers. I posed Rory similarly but had to put more defined green for him so it was clear who was in Jessica’s spot. Watercolor painting on paper.
DareDevil is my friend Claire’s favorite superhero of all time. When I finally got to meet her (back in July of 2015) face to face I painted this for her, Rory dressed as Matt Murdock’s superhero persona. I took a photo of it before giving her the original and I realized tonight when I painted the Rory as Luke Cage piece that I never posted this work here. I actually never even edited any of the photos from that trip. Sorry Mom, those Egret pics were sitting on my external hard drive for two years too. Thank goodness I’m a digital hoarder and still had the raw files on my external drive. So here we are, in all it’s glory, not lost to time, just forgotten for a while. Watercolor and ink on paper.
Luke Cage is an awesome show, and the image of the bullet hole hoodie is inspiring. I won’t ruin it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, but when it gets to this point, the image is profound. To celebrate this I use this bullet hole hoodie as the outfit that Rory uses to pay homage to this amazing character. This is the second Defender that I have painted Rory as, I will have to add Jessica Jones and Iron Fist to the mix to complete the series. I actually can’t find the photo of the DareDevil painting I did for Claire, so I may have to do another. I found it, finally posted it, go take a look. Watercolors on paper
Daily Creativity: Iron Fist & Luke Cage on the Tea Cup ride
I’m currently watching Iron Fist and thanks to Claire from the Defender’s Podcast I got the image of these two riding the tea cups. Luke and Danny are best buds, so it makes sense. I saw it as Luke doing all the work and Danny just having fun. Which sounds a bit right to me. I started this thinking it would be all in ink with limited colors, and then it looked weird to me. So I added colored pencils. So it’s a bit of a mixed media piece.
