Sometimes you look at a piece of fan art and think, “No, that has to be professional.” This is one of those times.

The below art is by Kirk Manley who, yes, is a professional artist but also does fan art for all kinds of pop culture on the side. He sent us some of his work highlighting four recent Marvel movies and they kind of floored us. Manley’s style is a beautiful mix of energy and color that really brings these well-known characters to life. Here are the images.

Counterpoint: Hard work and a lot of skill here, but this artist needs to learn about composition of value and focal point to take it to the next level. The Infinity War poster, for example, becomes an even, flat texture. There’s no depth, no area of emphasis, no place to focus. Drew Struzan is a good one to look at for taking many elements in one image, but maximizing value contrast (light against dark) in the area of importance, then letting the secondary elements recede by making the value of the object closer to the background.
