The Spectre (1940) - Classic color scheme by elfantasmo
The Spectre (1940) - Classic color scheme
Well, I didn't know anything about The Spectre until I read The Kingdom Come graphic novel when I was in college... later I found out he was the other hero Jerry Siegel created for DC.

I saw him again in the pretty solid DC showcase animated short film produced some years ago, and I was really exited when the character was hinted at in the Constantine TV show.

The classic green hood/cape was not how he was presented in his debut in the "More Fun Comics Magazine" no. 52... the original printing featured a dark blue color for the clothing and a dark gray skin.

You can find the alternative version of this pic with that color scheme here:

The Spectre (1940) - First Appearance by elfantasmo
The Spectre (1940) - First Appearance
In his first appearance on the "More Fun Comics" no. 52 magazine the colors were different to the ones we know it... the cape was blue and the skin was gray. The face was white since the beginning. On the next issue the colors were changed to the classic green/white scheme.

You can find the classic version here:

Vic Mackey from The Shield - Digital Painting by elfantasmo
Vic Mackey from The Shield - Digital Painting
The one and only Vic Mackey, played by Michael Chiklis!

I can't believe The Shield wasn't more popular... it's an amazing show, solid and consistent since the pilot all the way to the brutal and unexpected ending. All the actors totally own their roles, and the "season guests" were extraordinary (I rooted for the Glen Close character so hard)... Breaking Bad has tons of parallels with this show, if you liked it you MUST check this... I started watching the series -thanks to Netflix- in 2013, alternating with other shows here and then, and just finished it early this year.

I used the standart PS brushes for these one, hard round opacity, using a high contrast photo for reference. I like the painterly finish it has, the little strokes surrounding each color area. The background has some gaussian blur and some glow effects for the street and car lights.

Oscar Triana (a.k.a phantasmo)
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Oscar Fabián Triana Méndez is a filmmaker (as media says) and graphic designer born in Colombia in 1983.

Tired of hearing about big budgets, planetary alignments, white apples, and other issues that makes "impossible" to create a film, he decided to work with the only things that he always have at hand: paper, pencil, cardboard, clothes and everything than can fit in a scanner. He was awarded (twice) by the very same Lucasfilm and, for a time, he was a promising talent in his country, appearing on TV, newspapers, radio but not on the cereal. He has given lectures at different universities and film festivals in Colombia, too.

His philosophy hasn´t changed and the size of his wallet either. He lives with his family and a lot of dreams in his pages.

Hey, thanks for the watch. I really appreciate it! Are you really the guy who created the 'Star Wars in a Notebook' series though? I remember seeing your videos a while back being posted all over Tumblr. Great stuff!
elfantasmo Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! Yep, I am the " a notebook" guy! :D Both parts had a really nice reception, featured on a lot of sites and faraway places (specially the first one last year) :)

Btw, I came to your profile thanks to tumblr, too! Your new movie posters are awesome! ;)
soopernoodles Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010
That is awesome! Many congratulations with all the attention your work has received... It's very well deserved. Did you not win some sort of award by the way?

I'd actually realised after posting my first comment to you that I'm following you on Tumblr, and you're also following me back. Means a lot that someone such as yourself has noticed my work... I really appreciate it! Thank you very much :)
