Here is my version of the poster of Hellboy.
Painted with photoshop 8.
I hope that it will please... Even if I know in advance that , the one of Struzan is going to be amazing!

It was GDT who was above the hellboy logo before this version.
Finally it is Ron.
Sorry Guillermo!

For information, it is not a cover for a fanzine or quite other publication.
It is not a command.
I just made it for my pleasure.

Sceme and Najd <Thank you

BRAVO man! this is breathtaking, your characters have such personality and life, wonderfully rendered.

The big purple/incandescent demon-god (it's been some time since I read the comics) looks a little abstract/unfinished in comparison to the rest of the characters in the piece. You might think of refining it a little more. As well, I would really like to see the figures arranged in a more meaningful manner, right now they are sort of just layered together in one big clump. Take a look at the Star Wars or Indiana Jones posters, the composition and juxtiposition of the characters hints at the story.

A beautiful piece of work, I envy your skills.

Thank you very much for your advices KWAK

In first:
Maybe Hellboy did not look enough realistic because he his not human. Because in fact he has much more details than some other.

I have already had echos,that the composition of the group was not very in the point.
Regrettably I have no more time to retouch it and especially no more courage.
I already have spend more than 35 hours above, and the original size of this illustration it is: 2799 /4134 pixels, with a résolution of 300 pixels/inch.
Close-up aren't really in scale 1!!! Loll
There is more than 40 layers and every change of scale or character position is very laborious (I already have to test more 8 arrangement different throughout the creation of this poster).
So I would pay more attention on the composition of my image the next time. But for this one it is finished.

12-26-2003, 12:04 PM
Amazing...That should be an official poster...

12-26-2003, 12:50 PM
awsome work

I hope that those to come, shall please you so much!:blush:

Riddick, that is simply outstanding. everything from the layout to the composition appeals to me tremendously. there is not one single element in that painting that feels misplace or souless. you have accomplished something very few can reach; this thing is truly epic. good job to you!! *if i may ask, as a general suggestion to a novice, what kind of brushes and resoulution did you originally use to achieve this supreme results? a reply would be greatly appretiated. thanx!

12-26-2003, 02:20 PM
this is such an amazing creation Alexandre, i can't even imagine the amount of time spent on it, super work indeed!!!

12-26-2003, 03:40 PM

12-26-2003, 04:00 PM

12-26-2003, 04:07 PM
great work

12-26-2003, 04:10 PM
I don't want to criticize in anyway because I believe it's very good.

I can feel the comic feel movie style.. well.. i can feel the characters in some way :p They just go together.. I could crit a bit but.. hmm the hellboy guy looks good, the guy with lightning out of his hands (pirate with furcoat lol) is awesome, the nazi metal face is cool, hmm in my opinion what seems out of it is the green alien, especially the lady with ice steam on hands, and the guy holding big claw. Those three seem out of it... there I criticized lol doh but anyways I like it overall.

Very good work. it is really good enough quality to be the official poster.

12-26-2003, 07:01 PM
Hey Riddick,
Glad to see you on the frontpage. Sexy stuff my man. I'm no fan of hellboy, really... dislike it quite a bit... but you make it all look so god-damned cool. Keep it up.

You have produced some fantastic work there Riddick, well done:thumbsup:

I look forward to some more of your upcoming work.:bowdown:


12-26-2003, 07:56 PM
I think it is nicely executed and rendered. In terms of the composition my main feeling is that I don't know where to look at because all the characters share the same size and are in about the same plane. I think you should use visual clues to point to Hellboy in some way. Maybe have him get the most contrast and saturation and have the other characters look more desaturated with less define edges.

That's just a suggestion, good work :thumbsup:

12-26-2003, 08:05 PM
Sweet bajesus! Send me a print of this!!!!

I was actually refering to the purple squid demon thing in the right upper hand corner, not hellboy. I feel he looks unfinished in comparison to the rest of the characters. Hellboy looks great.

Congrats on the plug.

Oh ok sorry...
Yes it's true but it was to preserve a part of the mystery of the creature.
I have in the same spirit, try to melt him in the texture of the bottom.

12-27-2003, 09:12 AM
That would be perfect for the comic adaption of the movie.

12-27-2003, 12:06 PM
fantastic work

I keep seeing images of this guy, Hell Boy, who is he??

Is he from a new comic or something? I really feel like I am out of the loop or something.

Oxyg3n <Hellboy exists for approximately 10 years.
It is comic book character before all. A character of Dark Horse, of Mike Mignola.
The histories are histories of inquiries paranormal.
With atmospheres, sometimes funny, sad, melancholic, tinged with adventure and mystery.
I recommend warmly this reading.:buttrock:

01-13-2004, 01:48 PM
awesome illustration. abe looks great, along with pretty much everyone else. the only character that bugs me is, ilsa. she looks a little... I dunno... less stylized than the rest. she seems to fit in kind of akwardly to me, but that's just me. awesome work!

01-16-2004, 08:51 AM
Very good job! :applause:
