I’d recently finished binge-watching the first 4 seasons of super-hero anime ‘My Hero Academia’. Despite initial reservations after the first episode, I ended up getting into it and really enjoying it. My goal was to create some All Might fan art in a similar style to the Tattooed Goku I’d created a few years back. Here’s some work in progress images to show the process:
I started with a digital sketch using reference from bodybuilder Jay Cutler who reminded me of All Might. This was then refined and tidied up, adding his “I am here” catchphrase to the banner- a line he must have used a million times in the My Hero Academia anime!
Time: 7 Hours to draw
The first image on the left is probably around 60% through the colouring process. It was getting a bit dark, so brightened it up and added colourful background splatters to finish. I’m very happy with how it it turned out- makes a nice little tribute piece to the series 🙂
Time: 10.5 Hours to colour – 17.5 hours total.
As the icon of virtue, hope and strength, All Might can remind us to do good, help others and be strong. Would you’d like the symbol of justice to hang on your walls? And would rather display art which looks a little prettier than a copy-and-paste screen capture from the My Hero Academia anime? I’ve turned it into an A3 print, available to buy on my store.
Thanks for supporting my artistic endeavours, and if you’re a Hero Academia fan, let me know. See you next time 🙂
