Musings on art and life.
I have wanted to write a blog post on this particular subject for quite some time. There’s only one problem- where do you start? It’s an undeniable fact that the realm of comic lovers has some incredibly talented artists and illustrators amongst them, but I’m not even necessarily talking about the artists, inkers and colourists of the comics themselves. In this case I’m referring to Fan Art, to the readers who are inspired by this unique combination of art and fantasy. There is a remarkably broad spectrum of beautiful work in this category, from minimalistic and graphic to realistic.
One artist has stood out to me today though, and I think I have even found a fan of a fan artists, on Pinterest… His art does not just cover superheroes, but for my purposes I have only included images of these. His style has quite an endearing effect, and in looking at his renderings of much loved (or loathed) characters you can really tell that he loves what he does.
You can check out the large collection of Christopher Uminga’s water colour paintings, sketches and prints on his own website here, on CreepMachine here, and on DeviantArt here, as well as on the aforementioned Pinterest collection here.
None of these images are mine, and all link back either to the artists websites or additional blog posts about the artist.
