Luke Cage Watercolor

I’m still testing out my new waterbrush, but this time instead of painting a castle, I painted Marvel’s Luke Cage aka Power Man (in his old costume of course).

I started with a pencil sketch.


Next, I inked the pencil sketch. I erased the pencil drawing too. Luke Cage doesn’t look as angry in the inked drawing as he did in the pencil drawing. That’s just poor inking on my part.


Adding light washes of watercolor to establish the local color.


Adding more washes of watercolor.


Continuing to add more washes (pretty simple, right?)

  1. I enjoyed the Luke Cage sequences. The penciled, earlier sketches were excellent. Great coloring and use of shading.
