Recently I was asked by a couple of extremely close friends to draw up some illustrations for their wedding. Both are big comic-book fans so asked me to draw five infamous hero couples which would then be used as part of the table centerpieces for the wedding, each table being represented by a different couple.
Below are the pencil sketches I initially started with. Can you guess which one was used for the Bride & Grooms table?
|Mr Fantastic & The Invisible Woman|
|Superman & Louis Lane #1|
|Spiderman & Marry Jane|
|Superman & Louis Lane #2|
|Mr Incredible & Mrs Incredible (aka Elasta Girl)|
|Joker & Harley Quinn|
In the end I wasn't totally happy with the designs (mainly due to my lack of skill in the area of comic-book illustrations), however thankfully the Bride & Groom were incredibly pleased with the images. I do however plan to continue redrawing them in my spare time as a challenge to both improve my skills and prove something to myself. I have a HND in 'Illustration' and feel that my drawing skills have gradually slipped over the years as I made the transition from Illustration to Graphic Design.
Please let it be known that these illustrations are based on already existing comic-book images found during research. I take no credit for the original compositions. I would have liked to have created original images but due to being out of practice with my illustration skills I didn't want to disappoint and ruining my friends big day.
