THE SPARROW by rodolforever THE SPARROW by rodolforever
THE SPARROW is a hero living in the 30īs Metropolis! The character was developed by Stefan [link] and Myself... We got the idea of creating a hero kind of like the shadow and the rocketeer.. so this works both as an Advertising , A pulp novel cover, A MOVIE POSTER...

The character is still in development but the artwork says it all...

The Sparrow character was designed by myself and the Backround and the TEXT by Stefan (Who let me tell you is a genius with the font)...

Stefan is one of the best ART DECO -RETRO artists working today and was a joy to work with you can check out some of his kick as artwork here: [link]

:) hope you like it please comment

You're welcome! :D

Totally! I've been away too long. But I've been good! Lots of new commissions and a few personal projects that I'm trying to find time for. I'm feeling really inspired about art in general, which is really nice!

How have you been? I really enjoyed the "Sparrow" picture you did with Stefan! Really cool stuff! I look forward to seeing more!

No problem! Your works is awesome, as always. :D Glad to hear you're getting lots of cool commissions. Yeah, The Sparrow definitely looks cool! Will the comic format be all art deco like the cover? I can't wait to see how you do it!

Thanks! Wow, really? That's awesome! What kinds of blogs are they? That's really gratifying to hear! ^_^

Ah, thanks, man! You're the best! I'm hoping to start getting a more consistent flow of new work on dA--just trying to find the time to work on some of my personal art. A few friends and colleagues of mine and I are moving forward with The Revival comic (the one about 80s toys in a post-Apocalyptic world), and I've got another idea I've been toying around with that will produce lots more art deco/dieselpunk inspired characters and art! :la: I think I'll try to start posting some of the commission work I've been doing, too!

You guys (Stefanparis + Rodolforever) have been on my DeviantWatch for the longest time, and I think it's fantastic that you two have finally done something together! The Sparrow truly looks like he has potential as a superhero, and it'd be fun to see how you'd imagine him to look with more realism and detail and the sort of danger and villains he could face. Any future collaborations between the two of you or anything set in the realm of the Sparrow are greatly anticipated!

Thank you, I´m very flattered for the comments and all the positive feedback we are recieving. hopefully THE SPARROW can be developed as a superhero or at leas as a short story. I´m pretty sure that STEPHANPARIS and RODOLFOREVER will join forces again soon! :D

THANKS AGAIN :D

Illustration is great! I just feel like the font at the bottom is a bit out of place, "city of tomorrow - a new Dark Deco adventure" But otherwise it looks fantastic!

Rodolfo's artwork is wonderfully inspired by the graphics from the 20's, 30's without being a copy of them. His comic style designs both have a vintage "Dark Deco" touch and some very contemporary twist that makes it unique. Art Deco today just needs skilled, inspired graphic artists like Rodolfo to maintain its tradition, specificities and characteristic. Rodolfo truly made his the motto "What's Old is New", giving a new meaning to it.
It was a pleasure and an honor for me to collaborate with such a talented artist I'm an admirer of from my earliest time on Deviant Art. Long live to The Sparrow !
