Winged Super Hero (Detail)

This is a detail from a bigger piece.  I wanted to do another image with wings that I used from "Thea". This time, I detailed everything. I used Joe Manganiello's likeness for the face. The body is actually from my Digital 3D files. (Someday, I'll post a completed 3D piece). I worked fairly large – 4800×3700 pxls at 400 ppi. The basic layout was done at 200 ppi, then moved up to 400 for details. All this is pretty much lost, tho, since I had to reduce the image to fit this format.

About Skylar

When I was 13, I was given a paint-by-number for xmas. This was a new thing, and I found I liked painting - but the numbered "squares" were too tedious. I turned it over, painted a scene I was looking at, and have painted ever since. I studied in Europe as well as Hawaii, New Mexico, & California. For many years, I had my own Graphic Art business, where I did everything from designing & lay-out to Art Directing publications & newspapers. I moved to Houston in the early 90's to "Semi-retire". Well, that didn't work out at first, and I found myself doing Murals and Commissioned paintings in high-end homes for several years. Now I really am retired, and paint just what I like (Except for commissions, which I still like to do). Among those who have collected my work: L.A. Times Corp., Beverly Hills Post Group,Dolly Parton, Dionne Warwick, Sarah Vaughn, Carmen McRae, Robert S.
