How to paint Thor. In this video tutorial you will learn how to draw then color Thor from Marvel comics. Thor is a character from Marvel the Avengers. The video will give you instruction from drawing to current painting stage. I will update it and take it to another level soon in 2016. You can scroll down below to see step by step images with instruction.
It’s been quite a little while since my last update. And this time it’s THOR! I was trying to do Thor sketch quite a few times in the past few month since there is a movie coming up soon, I think it’s 2011. My first few attempts fail, well I didn’t post them because they are kinda suck but I might repost the quick digital painting sketch along with the new one. This one was suppose to be a quick sketch or speed painting (around 30-45 minutes) but then I got carried away and paint longer than I thought I would because I just want it to be better than it was. In this tutorial, I use Photoshop CS5 and Wacom tablet Intuo as a painting tool.
Usually when I am going to come up with new painting, my goal is to make it as consistence in term or quality of art or execution, if not better than the last one I painted. I constantly try to better my skill, but it doesn’t always turn out like I would imagine. It gets harder and harder, but once in a while I will have a break through in some technique or understanding of different angle to approach new painting in conceptual art. I always hope for better and all I can do is keep trying. 🙂
The final painting took me about two sitting sessions then to complete or hopefully. Anyway, a bit about Thor movie hype!
A bit about Thor and its origin:
Thor is a fictional superhero who appears in publications published by Marvel Comics. The character first appears in Journey into Mystery #83 (August 1962) and was created by editor-plotter Stan Lee, scripter Larry Lieber, and penciller Jack Kirby.
Debuting in the Silver Age of Comic Books, the character is based on the Thor of Norse mythology. Thor has starred in several ongoing series; limited series and has been a perennial member of the superhero team the Avengers, appearing in each of the three volumes.
Marvel Studios expands its film universe with a new type of superhero: THOR. This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth. Kenneth Branagh directs this fantasy epic which stars Australian actor Chris Hemsworth as the ancient Norse god, Tom Hiddleston as his evil brother Loki, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, a young woman who befriends Thor on Earth, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. *Anything with Anthony Hopkins is pretty cool!*
As for Thor character in latest film:
Chris Hemsworth as Thor: The god of thunder based on the deity of the same name from Norse mythology. According to Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood Daily blog, director Kenneth Branagh and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige chose Hemsworth after a back-and-forth process in which the 25-year-old actor was nixed early on, then given a second chance to read for the part. In an interview Hemsworth told Access Hollywood that the film stays true to the comics stating; “There’s so many different versions of the comic books, they’ve sort of bonded quite a few of them to form this particular story, but it’s all very true to the original stuff”. On his take of the character Hemsworth stated, “We just kept trying to humanize it all, and keep it very real. Look into all the research about the comic books that we could, but also bring it back to ‘Who is this guy as a person, and what’s his relationship with people in the individual scenes?'”. The first publicity image from the film released depicts Hemsworth in costume as Thor, illustrating elements taken from the comic character’s design.
