“Ever since I first discovered Deadpool in the comics, I became an instant fan. His sinister waves of ultra violence mixed with the wacky interactivity of ‘fourth-wall breaking’ makes for some damn good reading! As this issue is based on the movie renditions of comic book characters, what better way is there to pay homage to this years release of the long awaited Deadpool movie?
I have gone for a kind of ‘semi realistic’ comic book style, without the bold lines, focusing on light placement and tonal value for detail. I also wanted to try something a little different on this piece, my own little ‘fourth‐wall break’, by creating a layer to give the illusion that Deadpool is pointing his gun straight out of the art. Just by messing around with the Gaussian blur setting on the layer, I feel it gives a kind of 3D ‘pop’ to it!
Bring on the f#@king chimichangas!!”
