I'd had the idea for this Ricochet painting for a little while now and I'm really glad I could finally make it. I painted the figure in a traditional representational way with watercolor, and then used liquid acrylics for the background to get that old-school superhero comic flat color. I then used a brush-tip marker to do the black outlines.
I think the black watercolor drop shadow makes the whole thing come together and also perfectly differentiates the two planes. I like how the watercolor didn't perfectly settle over the acrylic and created a fun a texture, almost giving the effect that Ricochet is doing this maneuver in front of a giant pop art painting.
And hey, it's fun to have the WWE Artist in Residence paint the WWE's Resident Superhero, right?
