Lately, I haven’t gotten cover assignments often.
Don’t think i understand that yet, but its not a big deal.
But when i do get a chance to do one, i like to rock the ‘ose.
I’ve always been intrigued with Bloodshot from way back in the days when Valiant started just as i was moving in full sway with Milestone. When i got the chance to work with Warren Simons (editor in chief at Valiant) , we had been talking about doing some really great work concerning the new direction of the Valiant staple of characters. When he said he wanted me to come up with a great cover for Bloodshot…. I chomped at the bit happily.
Now understand, the cover art on this book is primo and with the likes of super detailed and hyper realistic techniques of Mico Suayan and Grandpa!, i needed to make sure i left my imprint.
Create some WOW factor.
I think i did it. And i had fun with it. 🙂
Don’t push me out to pasteur YET.
Yeah, you should be drawing WAY more comics AND covers. Your stuff is terrific. By the way, did you color this yourself? I was kind of disappointed to see some of the nice work that you did on the pants obliterated by the color. I thought that gave more weight to the figure.
No, this was the work of Brian Reber. A great colorist, although I can’t explain why a lot of the detailing is covered over. I think it’s good for people to see a before/after visual anyway. :).
I’m glad you like it.
It gives a perspective of the build up process.
Great cover. Is the original art for this available for sale?
I don’t have it in my hands. If I track it down, I’ll tell you the pricing.
