Here is a poster artist Brad Fraunfelter made for a client. It includes the five main characters of the ongoing series. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Each character was painted separately and then placed into the overall composite. The main character at center was created through the use of photography of a model in costume, and then was repainted in the computer. Also the Medusa character was created in a similar way. This was a model that was photographed in a studio setting, and was then manipulated and repainted over digitally to add the snake skin, snakes on the hair, jewelry, etc.
