Swashbucklers by MattKaufenberg Swashbucklers by MattKaufenberg
A big watercolor commission for my buddy :iconzabalou:

I did this one before the Hellboy and Wolverine sketchcards i posted recently (also for him). I like the differences between this piece and the sketchcards. It was fun to try different looks for them.

This was probably one of the tougher watercolor pieces i've done. I really need to practice my watercolor techniques more lol.

I believe this is 5x6.

The snikt/hook hand is a really great touch! Awesome colour work; especially like the rendering on Hellboy. Makes me want to get back into watercolours myself but I think I've been won over by the heaviness of acrylics! :P

MattKaufenberg Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2010
Thanks! Yeah, watercolors are fun. I want to try acrylics though really bad. Is that what you used on the Starman?

:iconvenkman-project:
venkman-project Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2010
Yeah; they've got a very plastic quality when they dry and they're quite forgiving to mistakes and easy to paint over. Also very good for building up layers if you like a cel-shaded look like I do!

Awesome! I'll have to pick some up. Any specific brand you'd recommend?

I'm not sure what brands you chaps have in the Americas but I used a mixture of cheap and expensive and find they work rather well - I go into boring detail about my painting on my blog if you want to have a look! [link]

Now, let's analyse this...

Wolverine = awesome
Hellboy = awesome
Pirates = awesome

So, (Hellboy + Wolverine) x Pirates = twice the awesome2

You can't argue with that math =D

MattKaufenberg Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2010
You mean in the comics? I know he had one in Age of Apocalypse...

kidchuckle Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
yeah I kind of stopped following xmen.. around that time... and he got a stump ... its cool that it was drastic.. but the thought Wolvie could be like that forever would be weird. I really don't know how they fixed that
Reply
:iconmattkaufenberg:
MattKaufenberg Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2010
I think it was only in the AoA storyline that he had lost his hand...and then when Bishop fixed the past everything went back to normal. It was a fun storyline.
