Welllll..................shit.

Yeah, I didn't plan to do this from the start, so getting all the portraits in there with chunks of their heads/hair cropped off was tricky :lol: I had to extend a lot of them to give them a smoother fade out/transition haha.

Anyway, I dedicate this to everyone who has watched/supported me through my "Avengers Poster Challenge!" :D

Photoshop CS5
10 hours or so to plan and put together
100+ hours all together over three weeks with each portrait.

Airbrush + Texture brushes.
Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!

All hand painted (except some of the lightning bolts from "iStockPhoto" and "Getty Images")
The little figures standing down the bottom were reffed off the official promo artwork(s).

Edit: Thanks everyone for the feedback (especially on my dodgy shading job for Black Widow.) :lol:

hi Sheridan, not sure if you are aware but there is a gallery in LA which focuses on a lot of showcasing independent artwork based on movies/tv etc. They just did an avengers line-up. Looks right up your alley, you might want to check them out and drop them a line. Heroes Complex Gallery hcgart.com/

Something is very off about Black Widow's face. Looks nothing like Scarlett Johansson
