Poster 1 of the Mini Poster Set - WIP
Hey, all, so my inbox was just hit with some art! The Mini Posters are in development and the first one is ready to share. This poster is a team shot featuring Kid Impact by Paulo Barrios. Paulo is a long time friend and an amazing artist from Argentina. Previously Paluo and I worked on the Urban Myth project which launched the world where my stories take place. More on the world of Urban Myth and the New Olympians books in future posts.
For this poster I wanted to introduce the team. Really have Kid Impact explode onto the scene surrounded by his new friends. I really like the old school of the new hero breaking through the page with his new teammates behind him and that is what we are going for here.
This is Paulo's first time drawing Kid Impact and I really like where he is going with the drawing. An observation I think you will find interesting is that comic artists typically default to intense facial expressions. It's anger and rage, which is appropriate in context of the hyper-aggression in most comics. That's not a condemnation, it's just an observation. My only feedback to Paulo on this update was, "why so intense?" That will change in this artwork in future updates....
