I had the privilege to see The Avengers in 3D at Vmax (not quite as big as IMAX, but has the advantage of a digital projector. Freakin' SHARP picture!!)
Very, very awesome film! If you are a fan of -any- of the heroes' films, by all means, check it out! They all get their moment to shine and nobody is outscreened by anyone else.
I wanted this painting to have a more Promo Poster look to it because all the Loki posters blow.
20 hours or so.
Airbrush + Texture brushes.
Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!
