Hey True Believers!
A few weeks ago I attended San Diego Comic Con (or SDCC for short) and had the pleasure to meet Marc Silvestri in person (He, his wife, and I have been twitter buddies for a few months now). Marc is freaking AWESOME and is the CEO and founder of Top Cow Productions (as well as an incredible artist!), which houses some of my most favorite comic books like Witchblade, Artifacts, The Angelus, The Magdelena, and The Darkness. Marc was kind enough to give me a few books and the book below which he signed for me (I would have posted a pic of the signed one, but my friend has it right now by accident lol).
I loved the colors so much, that I told him my next look would be a Darkness look, inspired by the colors of the cover of The Darkness #105 SDCC Exclusive Variant (above).
The Darkness a.k.a Jackie Estacado is a bearer of one of the mystical/supernatural artifacts in the Top Cow universe. His powers only work at night and during the day he’s usually a crime boss. So he’s kind of a bad guy with good guy tendencies every now and then; An anti-hero if you will. I focused on using his armored form and the spiky tendrils he makes when he kills people. (again, he’s a bad guy lol). He can also create “Darklings” out of his powers. They are little demon like creatures that also do his bidding. I went more artsy with this one as something more “wearable” didn’t seem to fit this one quite right.

I was catching up with Artifacts (by Top Cow) last night, and on the cover of issue #4 cover B was Glorianna Silver, bearer of the Ember Stone. It was such a cool picture that I got instant geekspiration (you like that? I just came up with that lol) and decided to do a look based on her from that cover today! I wanted to strike while the iron was still hot! (See what I did there? lol). I didn’t do a full face as, once again, as I was in a hurry. I hope you like it!
I’m really pleased with how this look came out. It looked so much like The Angelus’/Dani’s wings and I’m super excited to share it with you all! Sugarpill’s Burning Heart Palette is the star of this look again . I really love the shadows because the colors are so pretty and pigmented and really pop. They’re awesome for comic book, anime, and video game looks!
Enjoy my lovelies!
I’m not really 100% happy with how this look came out. It was really hard to find shadows I had to match the colors in/of her armor. I didn’t want this look to go to waste (as it is pretty, but didn’t look quite like how I intended) so I decided to put it up anyway . Now that I’m thinking about it, I know EXACTLY what I should have used!! D’oh! >.< Hence this now being a Ver.1!
The red stones in her armor is represented with the lipstick I chose (since the red didn’t quite fit in with the shadows I used, I couldn’t put it in there) I also did a nail look to go along with this just for kicks! Hope you all like it!
I just saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 today and it was AMAZING OMG!! (Fan of the books and movies!) Go see it if you haven’t already!
So last week’s poll held a surprise! There were two winners! Witchblade and The Angelus!
I’ll be doing two looks this week; One for both of them! (Hopefully! )
Thanks for voting!
