Aspen Matthews by Carl-Riley-Art Aspen Matthews by Carl-Riley-Art
This is my homage to the character Aspen Matthew’s from Michael Turner’s Fathom. It was the stunning art from this book that first inspired me to read and draw comics. I was lucky enough to be commissioned to do the lines last year so thought it was high time I have a go at colouring it.

Done in pencil on A3 sized Bristol board, scanned and digitally painted colours in Photoshop with a Wacom Bamboo graphics tablet.

Pencils: Me, Carl Riley ---> [link]
Colours: Also me ;)

Thanks for looking!!

WH :spidey:

Ps. R.I.P Michael Turner, you are still my all time fave!!

I'm kind of ashamed. I'm a comic book fan yet I knew nothing about this character. This piece made me look her up and I have to say, I'm a fan.

I'm really glad to hear this inspired you to read the book. The original series by the late Michael Turner was some of the best work I have ever seen.
Thanks for looking ;)
