Carrying the torch - Black Canary

Work has been super busy so I'm slacking on posts. Here is the concept of Laurel Lance Black Canary for season 3 of Arrow. After the dramatic cliff hanger mid season finale of Arrow, Starling city was left unprotected in the absence of Arrow. Arsenal and Diggle helped to pick up the slack and so did Laurel. Laurel decided to follow her sister Sara's footstep and become the Canary. I thought she would put on Sara's jacket and adapt to that but turned out she has her very own suit. She still has a long way to go to truly become the ass kicking Black Canary.

Arrow gets some upgrade.

Back in December, CW had a super awesome crossover event in the 8th episode of Arrow and Flash. During the Arrow episode, Oliver got some little upgrades to his suit. The 2 concepts above probably gives a little better look at the modifications. The strap for the quiver is more like a bandolier now that holds special trick arrow tips. There are flechette holders added to his left arm, lower back and his thighs. 2 seams were added at the lower front of jacket which makes it feel abit more like the lines of the abs which we all know Oliver Queen has, but also for the new jacket belt to loop through that holds 2 side pouches.
Now here is the fun one, below is a 'blooper version' which I added a green boxing glove on the bandolier with the other trick arrow tips as a homage to the classic boxing glove arrow. The awesome thing is that they actually figured a really smart way to create the classic boxing glove arrow in one of the episodes in season 3! I wonder if they saw the blooper illustration and got some ideas. 
More cool things to come!

The Demon - Ra's Al Ghul


So Arrow is on the mid season break right now after the epic mid season finale. Please go watch it if you haven't because it was awesome! So here is my concept illustrations of the Demon himself once again working with the fantastic costume designer Maya Mani and her costume department. I did this illustration before they cast the actor Matt Nable. There were rumors that 'The Mummy returns" actor Oded Fehr was on the list and Niam Neeson from the Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight triology is interested, so I tried to gave my Ra's a hybrid of both actors' qualities. This was another one of those I can check it off my list illustration of an iconic comic book character that I wouldn't have thought I would be able to work on. I'm that close to the Batman world! I can't wait til the second half of the season starts again since we were left with the big SPOILER 'cliffhanger' and a much better view of the A.T.O.M exo-suit hologram. Much much more cool things to come so stay tune and have a great holiday!

The Demon, the Bird and the Atom




So its almost mid season finale of Arrow, and they have been revealing some pretty cool characters. First they gave us the first glimpse of Ra's Al Ghul at the end of episode 4 'The Magician'. Last week they released official photos of Laurel Lance as Black Canary. At the end of this week's episode, they've gave a nice sneak peak of the hologram render of Ray Palmer's A.T.O.M exosuit that I have the pleasure to illustrate. It is one of the coolest thing I've got to do and definitely I can cross that one off my list, can't wait to see the full suit on Palmer.

The Flash episode 2 - Multiplex



In the second episode of The Flash, Flash faces a villain whose power is the ability to multiply himself. Cisco Ramon made up the name Captain Clone for him half way through the episode and at the end he gave him a name that are more familiar to the comic book fans - Multiplex. He was the the first character I got to worked on for The Flash. Like the first season of Arrow, the villains are not quite villainy yet and stilll very grounded visually.

Roy is Arsenal and he kicked butt.



So the long way was over, here is the concept for Arsenal. Season 3 of Arrow premiered on Wednesday this week and it was full of awesomeness and surprises. Roy finally made his debut as Arsenal in his full fancy outfit. When I say fancy, I mean fancy even Stephen Amell (Arrow) himself has joked about now he has the second coolest in one of his comic con appearances. I'm super happy how this one turns out in person and on screen, costume designer Maya Mani and her team did such an amazing job on it and definitely set a new high bar for the show. Go team Arrow!
