Select Your Hero 1.0

In 2009 the first iteration of Select Your Hero was born when I decided to start drawing my favorite characters from pop culture. The prints had a really great run, but after five years, the style I had chosen was starting to show its age. Originally, I had drawn all of their shapes in Illustrator and then did all the texture work in Photoshop. Since owning a Cintiq, I've been able to work faster and more efficiently. With an improved skill set, I rebooted the series in the summer of 2014. I kept the same canvas size, but nixed the dry brushed multi-colored backgrounds in exchange for a more neutral off-white that works universally with every character.

The original Select Your Hero series had only 71 entries. I had planned for 100, but never reached that goal. Select Your Hero 2.0 has a little over 200 entries planned. Below You'll find all of the Heroes finished to date.



All the sketch/concept work was done in Photoshop. Some of the characters went through multiple variations. There were a lot of rejected ideas, but I included some of them to illustrate the evolution of certain characters.
