I’ve been waiting to post this for awhile. And also I’ve been eager to see what my version of X-O Man-O-War would ever look like. I wanted to have fun with it and I wanted to set a tone.
I can be your Michael Bay! One can never have to any bursts of light or smoke….. BIG SMOKE… In a comic cover. And if someone complains..
…it won’t be the last of it!
Avoid those beams everywhere around you, X-O!
They’re just JEALOUS!
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.
