José Delbo sent me his striking pencil sketch and powerful inked work, which I then interpreted in oil on canvas. I wanted to create a very painterly piece with obvious brush marks etc, but I was also aiming for a nostalgic feel, a kind of 1980’s superhero comic book look, the kind I grew up with.

My goal with this animation was to try to recreate, in part, the creative process that both artists went through with the visual information I had. I was able to showcase my painting process more accurately as I could take photographs of my progress throughout. Consecutive images could then be layered like brush strokes over José’s drawing to create the impression that this was one continuous artwork from pencil, to ink, to completed painting.

The representation of the line sketch at the beginning, then pencil/ink and lastly the paint layers being applied demonstrate both artists’ struggle for the right lines, tone, form, and colour until the work is finally completed. As the oil was still wet with each photograph the glare of my studio lights can be seen in the brush strokes. Eventually, the figure emerges and as it does, our hero comes to life, looking directly at the viewer -- but is he grimacing in approval or disgust? We will never know for sure as just before he can say anything, white paint is brushed across the canvas entirely and the process begins again. Only the bat is quick enough to escape.

hi! r u willing to sell ur piece?? or looking to buy vengeance?? any offers??

REPLY

Whats up? Everything is for sale, but my valuation on the collection after genesis’ sale is pretty high. I like vengeance but prefer the protector. Gotten two offers so far, but nothing close to what I’d sell for.

im fine doin great, it was a mind boggling experience yesterday, good to know u own a piece aswell :)

anyways great i hope u get good offers in few weeks and if you dont mind what price r you looking to sell at?? as im negotiating from other seller aswell but lets see if the price is in my reach :)

i have vengeance but have'nt received any offer.

REPLY

9.5 eth is the best offer but that was offered way before Maxstealth made history on genesis! I’d start to consider offers above $8k. Easily think it’ll be worth 1/10th of what genesis sold for in a few years since its basically the sketches of the NFT record piece.

I’m in no hurry since NFT/crypto art is still very new and both artists are amazing.

Cheers to a good investment and great art!

WOW!! Best of luck bro and hope you sell what figures you have in mind, im currently negotiating with two sellers as they are asking around 12eth, hope they come down and i crack a deal :)

Let me know if you sometime plan to sell around 8 to 9 eth considering urz is 7/10 & if i do not close current deals in negotiations i will surely buy yours instantly.

Good to know you bro, wish you best of luck :)
