Celestials: Exitar the Exterminator

Exitar the Exterminator

When Arishem the Judge gives the thumbs down to a civilization/world, Exitar shows up to do the deed and destroy (and then remake) the planet.  He stands 20,000 feet tall (the normal Celestials are a mere 2,000 feet tall) and has a star field showing up within the shaded regions of his armor.  That's a pretty cool visual to me.

Here is the original image of Exitar the Exterminator.

STEP ONE:  Once more, I broke out my blue lead 0.5mm mechanical pencil on 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock.

STEP TWO:  More inking done with a fine point Sharpie Non-Bleed pen, with an assist from a PITT Brush tip pen to fill in the black areas more quickly.

STEP THREE:  I scanned the image into PhotoShop and colorized it with a MULTIPLY Layer, keeping the color scheme very simple to match the previous Celestials entries I did for  the Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe: REDUX EDITION.  I also used a star field image from the NASA Site, adjusting the Color Levels and using the Dodge and Burn tools to darken/lighten areas a little bit, as well.

This was done with pen-and-ink on 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" cardstock and colored in PhotoShop.
