Here are my a peek at my latest covers. First up, my farewell cover to New X-men. Issue 43 will be my last issue, so I wanted to see what I could pull off on the last cover. And, I just wouldn't be me if I didn't go out like I came in...with redesigns. I wanted to look like a team visually so I took the costumes of 2 of my favorite incarnations, New Mutants and Generation X, mixed them up and...well you're looking at it.Cable/Deadpool. Honestly, it seems that I've only been drawing Deadpool for awhile. But in this, he travels back in time to the Kirby era FF. So, why not put his ass in the ugly Fantasticar having himself a nice bath. I wanted to give this one an old feel, similar to the last one with Bucky. So, I did my best to ink this is a more classic style and use very muted colors. I think the effect works here.
And Marvel Adventures Ironman. These don't involve any deep description. They are just for fun's sake. It's like doing a poster for a cartoon on this book and that's fun.
I do learn alot, on all of these covers that I've been doing lately and have been pushing myself to try new things. From trying out new ideas with how to incorporate texture in the piece, or teach myself how to pull of an explosion in space, I try to learn something. I also like breaking the box on almost every cover here. Each one feels completely different, as they should because of the tone in each individual book.
And, thanks to everyone for all the replies recently! Keep them coming in, it's always a great inspiration.
