Adam Thompson Illustrates 50 Superheroes In 50 Days [Art]

If you want to get better at something, you’ve got to practice, practice, practice. Adam Thompson wanted to improve his Adobe Illustrator chops, so he gave himself a fun task to do: illustrate one superhero a day in Illustrator for 50 days. He learned a few new tricks, and came out with a fun set of heroic illustrations.

Most of the images that came out of Thompson’s “50 Heroes in 50 Days” project are these adorable little pill-shaped people, and it’s interesting to see what happens when he plays with those shapes and each heroes’ key components. Heroic jawlines make a huge difference in how the characters turn out, and seeing pill-shaped Storm in that cut-out costume is a fascinating bit of incongruity. The series also provides some great object lessons in how small details can reveal a lot about character. General shapes and colors are the main focus of these illustrations, but every now and then, Thompson adds a little something extra, like Wolverine baring his teeth.

He’s considering doing a second Illustrator series with supervillains. In the meantime, you can check out the rest of this series and see more of his portfolio at Behance.
