From The Files: ZEALOT
One more piece from the photo reference experiments I did while waiting for Mirror's Edge to start up. I was a big fan of Joe Casey and Sean Phillips' run on WILDCATS, so when I started playing with using photos as the basis for a drawing I tried the technique out on a couple of Wildcats characters, including Zealot. It turned out well enough that I posted it in the gallery on my website, along with a Grifter piece done in the same style.
I never did find good photo reference for this background, so I drew it without reference and kept adding shadows until it fit visually with the figure.
