TBBT Comic Book Cover

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I've just completed an homage to The Big Bang Theory. I adore the show and I needed to hone my computer art skills (I normally paint oil portraits). So I've combined the two and created a piece of digital art and, basically I am now seeking feedback. What better place to come! :icon_cheesygrin:

I've added a pic, but just in case you want to see the individual portraits have a look at my deviant art account. I would direct you to my website but it hasn't been updated in over a year, so much of my work is not there.

http://enginemonkey.deviantart.com/gallery/ Just click on any image in the gallery to see a bigger version.

I basically sketched the cast's portraits in pencil first, scanned them then worked on them in Photoshop. Hope I've captured them!

I thought using a comic book design was rather fitting. Sorry I haven't done the rest of the comic!

Your feedback/opinions are more than welcome. Thank you in advance for taking the time to look.

Amanda

wow nice that's really cool, you planning on making the rest of the comic?

Hi Shanglui, I'm not a comic book artist, my specialty is portraits, but I'd love to have a go!

Hice work.

You could start by taking one of your favourite scened from the show and drawing it in comic book fashion

WEll done! Although Raj needs a lot bigger mouth. But I can see why you made him tiny lipped; you did not want to look like a racist!

Also, those white circles make the crew look like they have medieval collars on!:icon_cheesygrin: -maybe squares would work better, or star shapes...

Not at all Sherminator, what a bizarre observation :icon_lol: !!! It's Raj's coy, 'there's a woman nearby' face, nothing to do with trying to make his lips look thinner!

Cheers smeghead. That's not a bad suggestion. Much better than trying to emulate the writers in trying to come up with my own scenario.

Raj, Howard and Sheldon, in my opinion, you got them 99.99937592% correctly (approximate number here! :p ). Impressive! Leonard and Penny, however... I don't know, I think they need a little more work. Not that they are not great, they are, and you totally recognize them! It's just, they don't look completely like that, actually... Especcially Penny.

Well, that's my view on the thing! But it is a really nice job you've done there! Great talent, congratz! :)

Thank you so much for the feedback, much appreciated. It's strange, depending on who I chat to, the accuracy of the likenesses differs :icon_confused:

well, I think all the heads are pretty well done. Impressive even. apart from raj, who looks like he has been sucking on lemon!:icon_twisted:

BTW what sort of cartoons are you planning to do?

-because you could do some with adult content! Like Penny in shower!

-or Leonard in the gym, with his strong muscles all oily and sweaty and his pants way too tight for him!

Just a suggestion.

But still, as you can draw so well, you could do ANYTHING with these characters inside your cartoons. and I mean anything and everything! So do nto hold back!

Could you draw one with Leslie in a radiation shower? I'm sure Irvine, huge Leslie fan, would appreciate!

Thank you pennyless :icon_cheesygrin:


Hello (again) Sherminator. Like I said, I'm a portrait artist not a comic book artist so I won't be doing the rest of the comic. But thank you for the suggestions, they were ...ahem...interesting :icon_wink:
