MIKEY ESPINOSA – MEMORIES OF CORNWALL

Last year, I visited a place in Cornwall called Lizards Point, it was beautiful to see mountains, hills and a beautiful sea I would never have expected to see here in the UK. It was very reminiscent of the time I went to St Ives in 2009 to learn how to paint landscapes, so this painting feels like a love letter to that time. I painted using acrylic paints.Mikey Espinosa - Cornwall landscape inspired painting visit sept 2017

MIKEY ESPINOSA – CATWOMAN – GOTHAM SIRENS (PART 2)

My latest redesigns will be of the DC heroines and villain, particularly the Gotham Sirens.

This post features the lovely Catwoman.

I was inspired by the classic 1960s look as well as Tetsuya Nomura’s play arts kai redesign. Her cat ears feature a torch, thermal detectors and can focus. Her claws also retract.DC fan art - Mikey Espinosa - CatwomanStay tuned to see the other Gotham sirens! In the mean time check out my comic GLORY OF DESSA !

MIKEY ESPINOSA – POISON IVY – GOTHAM SIRENS (PART 1)

My latest redesigns will be of the DC heroines and villain, particularly the Gotham Sirens.

This post features the lovely Poison Ivy.

Her ability to control nature and her obsession with it was something I wanted to show in her redesign. She see’s nature as the true owners and rulers of Earth and  I wanted to show how manmade fabric is being held up by the plants, showing the strength of flora over man. Of course I wanted to stick true to her original design, giving her orange/red hair and slightly tinted green skin, I didn’t want her to have physical, plant like features.

Mikey Espinosa – Miss Saigon

Around this time last year, I completed a painting inspired by my first visit to Miss Saigon, since then I have gone to see it several times and with every visit I was inspired and always saw it with fresh eyes. I recorded my painting progress and finally managed to patch it together! Here it is!

Ella December – Dirty Diamonds – Volume 1 (art by Mikey Espinosa)

Ella December x Mikey Espinosa - Dirty Diamonds cover 1Ella December makes her comeback with her new series Dirty Diamonds and yesterday released Dirty Diamonds – Volume 1 : Lone Wolfe < click to read!

“The first installment of the Dirty Diamonds series.
Harley Jade Diamond is a struggling writer living in London, whilst all her friends are making progress.
Harley finds herself in a risky relationship that she can’t get enough of with dangerous consequences for everyone involved.” – Ella December

The theme of the art is sexy, mysterious and sassy and so I decided that the concept for the art of the Dirty Diamond series would be “Bigger strokes.”

It’s always fun to work with Ella December, without the help of her story telling I wouldn’t be able to come up with the art for her work! Below is the art cover during it’s progress, I was getting a feel of her pose and the lighting. The following image is the entire painting.

The Dirty Diamonds logo shows two capital diamond D’s the second towering over the other. The logo shimmers and if you look closely, the diamonds are flawed.
