The Avengers by Robert-Shane The Avengers by Robert-Shane
The amazing, and much-deserved, success of the movie made me want to create my own picture of the Avengers. I went to the cinema twice to see it - and I haven't been to see the same film twice in a long time!

I chose to feature Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk as these are very much the backbone of the movie. I decided to paint them all in their 'classic' comic-book costumes - the ones that, for me at least, will always represent how I think of these characters.

This was drawn in pencil first then coloured in Photoshop using a Wacom pad. This is a much reduced resolution version of the original which is 600dpi. It took a very long time - and I'm pleased with how it turned out - though I'd be very interested to hear what others think?

I also think this piece reflects how much my abilities have improved over the last 18 months or so since I've been submitting work here. Hopefully I'm moving closer to having some work published some time!

These characters are, of course, copyright of Marvel. If you like the image enough to feature it elsewhere - I'd really appreciate it if you could make sure to credit me.

Awesome work man, the team looks fantastic and I really like how you have gone for the more comic book look for each of them.
I dunno why but I am especially digging the Hulk.

The movie was pretty damn awesome too!

G'day my friend! I very much prefer the comic book look for these characters - although I do appreciate that these costumes perhaps wouldn't look so effective in the movies (if you've seen the original Captain America movie you'll know what I mean!). Nice to see you found some spare time for DA what with your new child-care commitments! :)

True, if they used the comic costumes it would look a bit weird.

Spare time is a luxury at the moment mate. I have a picture that was half finished when my kid was born... and it's still half finished. I'll get there I'm sure though. :)

I'm sure you'll get to it when the time is right. In the meantime I'm sure Mrs Stingroll would agree you've got your priorities right!

Hi to you too mon ami! And thank you for the kind words as always. :)
Did you see the movie in 2d or 3d? I saw it in both - but I preferred the 2d version as the colours were much more vivid.

I saw it in 3D,so I just can't wait to buy the disc !!! It was so intense that when I got out of the theater I felt like I've been traveling in hyperspace :D:D:D

:lol: "when I got out of the theater I felt like I've been traveling in hyperspace"... they should use that on the poster!!! Let's hope that the new Spiderman and Batman movies will also be as successful!

Really, really nice work.

Hulk looks like painted in the modern Marvel style and Captain America and Iron Man look as if from an older 1970s issue (very classic) and Thor looks manly (lol) as he should.. All in all I see a really nice combination of colours, effects and "eras" in your work.

Looking at the other works in your gallery - nice progress :)

Thanks very much for the kind words. I thought that people would like to see the 'classic' costumes painted in a more modern style - so I'm glad you liked the combination. :)
