Sideshow Print: Silver Surfer by FabianMonk Sideshow Print: Silver Surfer by FabianMonk
Don't forget to check out the new Satellite Soda contest, currently running on our forums: [link]
Tight deadline, so be quick!


Okay so anyway, here begins a slew of pieces that are pretty outdated by now. I recently got the green light though, so time for a dump.

Almost two years ago by now, I was asked by Dave Igo to collaborate with him on a test illustration for Sideshow Collectibles, the company where he works.
The test was a success, and since then I've worked on a number of different pieces, with multiple equally talented artists.

This was the first official piece I colored for Sideshow.
The line art for Galactus was provided by Daniel Alexander :iconryudan: and the line art for Silver Surfer was drawn by Dave Igo himself :icondaveigo:.

I actually ended up drowning out some of the crazy detail Dani put into Galactus, but hope it still sells the scale.

Each of these prints is based on a sculpture (in this case 2). Silver Surfer was sculpted by Tony Cipriano and Galactus by the Pablo Viggiano Sculpture Studio: [link] .


More stuff on the way!


SilverSurfer and Galactus are obviously property of Marvel Comics.

You make some fabulous paintings. When I first saw this I thought it was official concept art for some sort of Marvel production.

Hahahahaha. Oh yeah.
I couldn't help but wonder how some of the artists working on this guy on a monthly basis must feel. I wonder if there's a point where you just stop caring that you just spent the last half hour just rendering a dude's abs, for the hundredth time...
