The Arrow by phil-cho The Arrow by phil-cho
"My name is Oliver Queen. After five years on a hellish island, I have come home with only one goal: to save my city. But to do so, I can't be the killer I once was. To honor my friend's memory, I must be someone else. I must be... something else." (Intro to Arrow Season 2)

Green Arrow belongs to DC Comics

Great artwork, but ... isn't Oliver a righthanded archer? Here he holds the bow like a lefthanded, the quiver is on the right place for a righthanded!;-)

Haha I've been called out on that a lot, sorry about that :P. My excuse is that my version of Ollie is ambidextrous.. Or I could just flip the image. In any case, glad you like the illustration outside of that mistake! :)

I guess I would never have noticed if I had not started even with the archery.
Before I draw someone with weapons I always try it on my own and use myself as reference to do it right. But sure ... you can't have all that in mind when it has nothing to do with you. Long time ago I also drew a woman with a bow and made the same mistake -_-.

this is so cool! So do you answer questions? If so, How do you do the ink?

Usually I do everything on the computer with a screen tablet, but I did this particular piece by hand with micron pens and india ink + brush. The coloring was done on the computer though.

Cool. How do you make it all black and crisp?
Reply
:iconphil-cho:
phil-cho Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Oh yeah, the actual illustration is a not as crisp as this final colored version - it's a little more blotchy, and you can see my brush strokes. To get it clean and crisp like this, you just need to adjust the levels in Photoshop until it looks the way you want it.

adjust levels in photoshop ... okay. But how do you do that without messing with the levels of the paper?

:iconphil-cho:
phil-cho Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I'm not sure what you mean by that, but another thing you can do is just use the brush tool and fill in the blotchy areas. Or you can use the pen tool and make a selection around wherever you want it all black, and fill it in. There's no correct way to do any of this mind you, it's all just a matter of problem solving. I'm sure you'll figure it out! A lot of my process was discovered by practice, not by someone teaching me.

I'd really like that as a print. Is that doable, or would DC Comics unleash a hail of lawyer arrows?

:iconphil-cho:
phil-cho Featured By Owner May 12, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hmm I don't offer any prints, so your best bet is downloading the image on the link to the right, and printing it yourself. I don't think there are laws against that...as long as it's just for yourself, and you're not distributing it. Sorry about the weird hands haha, I didn't realize that while I was drawing it, but you're right. It looks like he's about to shoot the arrow, holding the bow horizontally haha. But hey, it's Oliver Queen - maybe he can shoot it however he wants, and it'll still work (worst excuse ever).

If you want to support me as an artist though, you can always commission me :).

Also, two little tidbits. Nothing major, but if you want to be OCD-level correct, the riser of the bow would have to be in his other hand; or if you are sticking to the lefthanded style, the arrow would be on the "inner" side of the bow (ie. the other one). Also, you normally only use three fingers to draw the string (index on above, middle and ring finger below the nocking point).

I feel really harsh critiquing such silly thinks, but although the picture is awesome. Ollie's left hand is also facing the wrong way.

Haha good catch! I didn't realize it but you're right. It's as if he's shooting the arrow, holding the bow horizontally like a huge crossbow or something. My mistake! :P
