Two-Face Heroes Con 2011 by AdamWithers Two-Face Heroes Con 2011 by AdamWithers
This was my piece for the 2011 Heroes Con Art Auction. Done in Copic marker, acrylic wash, colored pencil and ink, the original measured 20"x30". Easily the largest, most ambitious thing I've done since college, in that I never ever paint (it hates me) and never work bigger than 10"x15".

I was really happy with how it turned out. Unfortunately, they decided not to include it in the real auction and bumped it to the Silent Auction on Sunday. I did get to see the guy that won it, though, and he was thrilled to have it, which really made me happy. :)

I remember seeing this up on the blog. Damn, if the folds in the clothing alone aren't impressive. But of course I am a little biased, since Two-Face was a favorite of mine in Batman's rogue gallery.

Oh, and on that note, I would be remiss to ask: "Why you tryin' ta kill me?" :XD:

Excellent, excellent, excellent. The vest and holsters look was a fantastic take. I would have bid a pretty penny for that one myself, had I been there.

Yeah, I was almost done with the layout when I added the dropped jacket and holsters. Two-Face always has this great classic gangster feel to me, I thought it would be a neat look for him.

Oh, man, this is really outstanding! The markers look so smooth. I imagine you burning through a couple refills for your copics on this one! lol And I really like how you did his suit. Most of the time, I find the two-color suit to be kinda cartoony and silly, but you really made it work here. I really like it. I would have totally bid on it had I been there. :D

Actually, it didn't burn through markers like I thought it would. I had to refill a couple times, but not that much. I was thinking it could burn a whole refill bottle, but not even close! :D

The trick with the suit is not to do the ridiculous stuff they sometimes do where one side is, like, tan and the other is neon plaid with a fuzzy collar or something dumb. Good rule of thumb: if Joel Schumacher would have done it, don't do it. ;)

The reaction is kind of the best part. I'm not in art just for my own enjoyment - I do it to give other people something they can enjoy too. :)

I also like the coin at the bottom, it's a cool "background"

That danged coin took more work than the whole rest of the piece combined! When I first laid it out in the rough drawing, I was like "Tsss--that looks really cool... but I'm'a gonna HATE doing that coin full-scale!"


...And I was right. :shakefist:

One of my favorite pieces from the whole weekend. I know how hard you worked on this, Adam, and I was way pissed when I found out it was getting bumped to day two. Like you said, though: At least it went to a guy who truly appreciated it!

And you need to hit those paints more often, if this is the result you get from them. This is one of the best things I've ever seen you do!!! :D

I had some fun, yeah. Was going to do something with a pretty girl on it, but the layout was fighting me REALLY bad so I threw my hands up, got angry, and did a piece with a guy that has half his face burnt off instead. Take that, boobs! I defy you!!!
