Dr. Harrison Wells by Taqresu650 Dr. Harrison Wells by Taqresu650
This is a portrait of Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) from the new CW and DC series, "The Flash." I think the scanner failed on the color (why does that seem to be extremely common when scanning?), but I'm still proud of this artwork. I used a reference picture of Wells without his glasses (in his secret room at S.T.A.R. labs), Another of him in a wheel chair (for the glasses and other details), and some Reverse Flash pics and art.

The two most challenging parts were Cavanagh's face, and the blur effect of the Reverse-Flash. Most of the coloring was done with color pencils with the exception of the red, which I used Crayon for. For the blur I lightly drew lines while vibrating my hand like a seismic graph (seriously, it helped me to shake my hand like that).

Harrison wells is the leading scientist and creator of S.T.A.R. labs. He built an particle accelerator which blew up and sent things like dark matter into the atmosphere of Central City. Barry Allan and many other individuals became meta-humans (super powered humans) from the exposure. Harrison Wells was confined to a wheel chair (or so everyone thought). While he has helped the Flash get faster and to better control his speed (even saving his life a few times), he is riddled with secrets and mysteries that have slowly revealed themselves throughout the show.

I do not own the Flash, CW, DC, the Reverse-Flash, Harrison Wells or anything associated with them, this is merely fan-art.

You've drawn Harrison Wells really well, and I like the effect you've used for the blur on Reverse Flash, it really reminds me of how the Reverse Flash looks like.

Thank you for the compliment. I had to study quite a few screenshots for this drawing. I used what I learned about portraits and facial proportions to get his face. The blur was a bit hard to get, but I found a way to shake my hand quickly as I outlined him and colored him.

Sounds like a tedious and long process, but the result was worth it :) (Smile)
