GOTG Fan Art – More Pics

GOTG FacesHere are two more photos of the Guardians of the Galaxy fan painting I made, which is now hanging in the home of some very happy superfans. In case you missed my previous post, I switched out the faces of Starlord and Gamora with those of John and Theresa, a couple of Marvel-maniacs (like me). GOTG closeup

These photos were taken by John, who appears as Starlord in the composition. I am happy to report that he was very pleased with the painting! It’s not every day that you get to see yourself surrounded by a space assassin, a sentient tree, and a talking raccoon.

GOTG A BeginningsI recently finished one of my most challenging projects, a Guardians of the Galaxy fan painting. I was basically paying homage to one of the movie posters, replacing the faces of Starlord and Gamora with those of a superfan couple, John and Theresa.GOTG B Faces Finished

It measures 2″ x 3″, which is only slightly smaller than the size of a real movie poster. While not technically the biggest painting I have made, it is nonetheless bigger than my usual canvases. With a GOTG C Finishedfull 5 characters in view, along with energy beams, spaceships, and a planet, it is definitely the most complex and detailed composition I have worked on.

This painting really put me through my paces, and I’m glad I got the exercise! I feel ready to take on new challenges and go outside of my comfort zone.
