Kick-Ass 2 was ok. Solid plot, but a little juvenile at some places. Shit needs to get real again and it needs to go back into mob/mafia territory. That was the best aspect of the 1st film which really grounded it.

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 20:38:27 -0400 Elysium - Kruger http://shadowness.com/Sheridan-j/elysium--kruger <a href="http://shadowness.com/Sheridan-j/elysium--kruger"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/368265/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Spent about 4 weeks on this, off and on in between projects. Thank god it's over, lol (Nah, I loved it) Anyway, "ELYSIUM" is pretty cool, and I like it because William Fichtner. But Kruger is my favorite villain for 2013. He totally owned it. This is the only way I could think of portraying his character. Seriously Used this as a base reference: (http://www.flicksandbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Sharlto-Copley.jpg) and just improved from there. Photoshop CS5 40 hours ?? Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!

Fuck this guy, right? Haha, but seriously, he was an amazingly well done character. I gotta give Naughty Dog that one. I actually used the likeness of Ray McKinnon (Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy) for this one: http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/7528/7stl.jpg I just thought he has a rather interesting face and could work pretty well for this character. Photoshop CS5 About 20 hours! Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches! Reffed off a few in-game screenshots to get his face looking as true to him as I can while still keeping a more realistic look at the same time. Tricky but fun stuff!

Why is there so little love for Bill? He was awesome. Photoshop CS5 About 20-25 hours! Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches! Reffed off lots of screenshots to get his face looking as accurate as I can. Sat, 03 Aug 2013 04:32:48 -0400 Michael Shannon http://shadowness.com/Sheridan-j/michael-shannon <a href="http://shadowness.com/Sheridan-j/michael-shannon"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/353948/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Taking my new Wacom Bamboo tablet for a good test drive. Anyway, have some Michael Shannon! This is an all-round tribute to the kind of characters he usually plays (he nails the crazy so damn well). I think an awesome style heavily influenced by JP Valderrama and Russ Mills was more than fitting for something like this! Photoshop CS5 8 hours or so (after a failed first attempt) Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!

Also Guy Pearce. I loved the visual effect of the Extremis Virus, and decided to take a leap out of my comfort zone and have a crack at replicating the effect when it goes overdrive! Photoshop CS5 Painting. About 3 days. Airbrush + Texture brushes and environment effects for the charred skin from CGTextures.com Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!
