Thank you for your support!

It is a few years since the first set of SPLASHHEROES, so I hope you all are happy that these special woman are finally back!

.

To make this year calendar happen we have used paint and water only!
Close to 100 galons (450litres) of liquid to be exact.

The project was stretched in time – and in this case the first shoot was done in May and the last during my Splash Workshops in October 2019. All together it was 8 studio/shooting days.

This year we have 12 splashy Vilenesses, well almost twelve… Because like in the previous SplashHeroes calendar – not all ladies were heroines – so this year not all of them are evil. And I am sure you can find the ones.

There is something that fascinates me about villains… It is probably the fact that among other things they simply cause chaos and give things to do to Heroes. Without the first group there wouldn’t be a need for the second – in our case making the SplashHeroes five years ago was an action simply waiting for a reaction and it is happenning this year!

So without further adieu I present you SPLASHHEROES 2020 – The Villans – AurumLight Calendar:

The Cover

For that series we have prepared special wigs that were done by my good friend Katrina Bets who worked with me on the first SplashHeroes Series.

We worked with 6 very skilled models that also worked with us before.

The interesting point is that models are generally very patient people and used to repetitions, many takes, studio surrounding and a lot of people that runs around them. But not necessary they are familiar with a cosplay concept or even the superheroes in general. So sometimes it is tricky to get them to be emotionally invested in the actual character they portray.
On the other hand Cosplayers not always are comfortable with the modelling part of the project were you are pretty much exposed to everything and everyone.

So the goal is to find someone in between these two worlds and you are good to go!

The illustrations and the concepts required a specific props.
And for this series we had to cast a bunch of plaster skulls, build a set of horns or a crazy bat…
It was something different and fun to work on!

And when I say that our models are really good – check the January concept one more time above and now you will see that we had to threw the liquid on the models head!

So that is it!
I hope that you have enjoyed this one. We certainly did!

Even though it was a lot of work – starting from a sketch – going through the wet and long studio photo  days finishing with weeks of postrpoduction…

If you would like to have the calendar in print were you can enjoy all the illustrations in their full glory and resolution…

Acknowledgements – If you look carefully you will notice many references – especially to J. Scott Campbell who is one of my favourite artist on the comic book scene! But also Artgerm and many others.
I enjoy comic books and have a lot of respect for people that make them happen. I thank them for many years of jogging my imagination!
