Exploding Man by ifihadacoconut Exploding Man by ifihadacoconut
Peter Petrelli is going to explode. Seriously. That's how hot he is. :)
I used the Entertainment Weekly cover feat. Peter, Mohinder, and Parkman as the base for this. I traced the outline, layed down different shades of gray to distinguish each area, and then dodged/burned to add shading. After that, I added a Gaussian blur to that layer to smooth it out even more and then added color layers over the top, adjusting the transparency to get it to the right level. The bg was just orange, but I dodged/burned again to make it pretty :) Another experiment, this style somewhat, ok, seriously, copying the one that Jason Badower explained on his blog.
Peter Petrelli (C) NBC and Tim Kring
About 2-3hrs in the GIMP.

Peter looks so ridiculously cool! I love his expression, and the grey tones against the bright backdrop.

Thanks! ^_^ That expression is all Milo - I tried to keep it as close to his likeness as possible :)

Thanks so much, Kitty! I was worried about the brightness at first - he almost had a gray bg! :O

Oh yes :) His exploding ability didn't come from Ted - he's had it all along, he just had to have his hair flip the right way to activate it ;)

Haha, I'm glad that it's still Peter-looking! My boss saw a print of it at work and knew exactly who he was, and I didn't even know she was a fan, lol. :)
