Adam Holmes - Star-Lord


Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my all time favourite superhero movies, and Star-Lord one of my all time favourite characters. The film is really well produced and the actors chosen portray their characters perfectly. Whilst searching for inspiration I came across a graphic style piece based on the movie poster and I thought it would be quite cool for me to try doing one myself. I wanted to combine the comic book styled black lines, with my realistic blending technique to try to merge realism and fantasy. I accidentally stumbled across the red colour overlay whilst I was trying to create the right shade for the mood of the piece, I really liked how it looked so I decided to keep it in and apply it across the entire piece to help bring the image together more.
