I was recently commissioned by Melbourne film production studio Cranky Fish to create some staff portraits for their new website. I was given a lot of creative freedom in terms of generating concepts and pitched the idea of creating super hero alter egos for each of the individual studio personalities.
This idea was received enthusiastically by the client, and using some brief personality and occupation descriptions for each person I was depicting, along with a generous amount of photographic reference I got to work.
I had a lot of fun playing off of the individual personality traits to come up with super hero alter egos, and very much enjoyed doing portrait likeness’s for the first time in a long time. All in all this was a really cool project especially since it allowed me to revisit my childhood love of comic book style illustration.
Below are the nine finished illustrations from this project:
