Giclée Fine Art print based on the incredible villain from DC Comics, “Thaal Sinestro”. You can get it on my website (12 x 24 inches / Canson Infinity Edition Etching Rag 310gm / Free acid, 100% cotton paper / +100 years lifespan / Signed and numbered edition of 200).

The image was inspired by an amazing figure that Steve Schumacher sculptor did for Sideshow Collectibles, a few years ago. It’s a wonderful sculpture, very powerful and “majestic”. I tried to emphasize this aspect even more in my final illustration.

The main part of the illustration is a graphite handmade drawing. The second step is to adjust it and color it digitally. I use a Wacom Cintiq for this. Finally, I add the background and the final details, also in Photoshop.

I tried to go further with the color. I wanted to get brighter colors, I think I got it, and it’s amazing how these have been kept on the final giclée fine art print. I hope people like it and appreciate it.
