Stanley Lau’s Sexy Superheroes
Lau is a digital artist who uses Painter and Photoshop with a Wacom tablet. A Wacom tablet can be described as a large mousepad that allows a digital artist to sketch, draw and color with a pen specially designed for use with the tablet. Using this device gives Lau’s designs a hand-drawn essence (that is often lost in Photoshop illustrations), while keeping the lines clean and solid. Because of Lau’s upbringing in Asian culture, he has been influenced by a number of Japanese and oriental art styles. The fluidity of his work is a testament of the effect that traditional Asian art has had on his style, while the influence of anime and manga art can be seen in the large, expressive eyes of his characters, framed by delicate, feminine faces.
Many character designers will create a character on a solid white background, to show of the silhouette of the character. Lau’s character designs often include a background, which puts the character into perspective. He also poses his sexy superheroes in a moment of action or high attitude, truly showing off the action hero appeal of these go-get-’em girls.
