Here are the steps to recreate your own variation of Green Goblin Artwork:
Firstly, start off with a light sketch of the Green Goblin mask.
Secondly, we use pale sage coloured pencil to shade the side of his jaw and the reflective surfaces along his metallic mask.
Where applicable, take note to erase your previous pencil lines before applying the pale sage colour.
Thirdly, we follow up with Neon Pink and Yellow Chartreuse to achieve the pinkish metallic colour gradation.
As these two colours are relatively bright, apply another layer of 20% warm grey/white to blend with it.
Next, we follow up with black outline for his eye and the arcs extending vertically down his mask. (towards the nose)
In general, take note of these tips when colouring the mask:
- Break down the mask into respective segments (mark out the segments)
- Find the highlights, followed by the shadows
- Blend in the colours
- Avoid similar shades for adjacent segments
- Follow the shape of the mask to create the texture
Tips to colour Green Goblin’s mask:
- Separate the mask into segments
- Apply the base colour (Pale Sage) first, mark out the highlights/shiny parts of the mask with white/ another layer of pale sage
- Use black to lightly shade the edges/shadows
- Blend with Kelp Green (sometimes Celadon Green) to create the gradation
- 20% and 70% warm grey can also be used to blend the black colour with pale sage. However, avoid using too much grey to blend the colours as it will cause the overall outlook to look duller.
Tips to colour Green Goblin’s mouth:
- Mark out the highlights on the teeth with white
- Only use black colour as the last colour
- Mark out the outlines of the teeth and shadows with chestnut (colour)
- Ensure that we do not blend too much (metallic gold with white), as it will cause the highlights (white) to be smudged
Tips to colour Green Goblin’s eyes:
- Mark out the reflective parts with white
- Try to draw/mark out the reflective parts as an odd shape instead of a symmetrical/perfect circle
- Shade the base colours of the eyes with deco yellow and lemon yellow
- Add the shadows by shading gently over the base colours using 50% warm grey
- We use black colour for the edge of the eyes, followed by blending it with 70% warm grey and then 50% warm grey to achieve a smooth gradation
- Use white pen to enhance the highlights
Take note of the above tips, and you’re good to create your own variation of Green Goblin Artwork!
