If you remember the classic How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, you’ll be very interested in the upcoming How to Paint Characters the Marvel Studios Way, coming in 2019.
Here is how Marvel describes the book:
In this beautiful hardcover, you’ll discover insights from some of the industry’s leading concept artists. Ryan Meinerding, Charlie Wen, Andy Park, Jackson Sze, Rodney Fuentebella, Anthony Francisco and more of the artists behind The Marvel Studios Visual Development team will share their method behind creating iconic designs for all your favorite characters, from Captain America to Black Panther!
Within the stunning pages of this keepsake book, readers will learn these artists’ favorite tools of the trade, their tips for visual character development, their process of collaborating with filmmakers and other artists on the team, and the costume and props departments—and how it all comes together to create seamless film designs! Each five-ten page “character study” will take readers on a step-by-step journey through the artist’s approach to bringing a specific hero or villain to life. Not only will readers get a sense of how each artist works, from their tools to their process, they’ll also get to see how a character’s design was created—from blank page to a final approval!
How to Paint Characters the Marvel Studios Way is set for an April 2019 release. I don’t know if you’ll actually learn how to paint the Marvel Studios way, but the art book looks fantastic.
