Lucha Libre Liberation

Today my eldest son (still only 5) “commissioned” me to make a masked wrestling design. Not one to disappoint, I decided to make a Lucha Libre vintage style poster. Having grown up watching these masked marvels battle on TV in the 60s and 70s, I was very keen on his request.

I started by creating a low detail head in Blender (my 3D application of choice). I used this to get proportions and to try out different camera angle.

Once satisfied, I created the line art in Illustrator based on this model. From there, all fun in Illustrator.
I think I might do a few more.
