Golden Age Superman Vol. 2

This is the 2nd cover illustration of Superman I did recently for DC, this time for the 2nd volume of Golden Age Superman reprints.  You can see the cover for volume 1 here.  Once again, I enjoyed trying to come up with another iconic image for my favourite era of Superman stories.

The final art for this was drawn traditionally with ink on board, with colour and effects added digitally.  You can see the rough below.

The Handmaiden

This one was drawn for the New Yorker, to accompany a review of Park Chan-wook's film "The Handmaiden."  It was a pretty fast turnaround time, but I had fun with the assignment.  Any time you get to watch a movie (especially a good one) as part of your job, that's a win.

All the art for this was drawn digitally from an initial pencil sketch.

Silver Age Adam Strange

The next cover in my year long series of DC reprints is the Silver Age Adam Strange.  It was a delight to work on this as Adam Strange is one of my favourite comics characters.  For me, the central theme of the series was the romance between Adam and his love, Alanna.  I was always struck by how the early stories usually ended with Adam alone, light years away from Alanna and dreaming of a way back to her.  I've actually drawn him once before, lost a similar reverie.

The final art for this was drawn in ink, with colours and effects added digitally.  You can see the colour rough below.

Silver Age Green Lantern

Continuing on with the series of covers I drew for DC's reprint collections, here is the one for Green Lantern the Silver Age Vol 1.  The final art for this was drawn completely digitally using Sketchbook Pro and Photoshop.  You can see the initial rough sketch below.

Golden Age Batman

Still another cover for DC's reprint collections, this is for the Golden Age Batman Volume 1.  Clever Batman fans will note that this is an homage to one of the best Batman covers of all time (and my personal favourite Batman cover).

The art for this was drawn in coloured inks with small colour tweaks via photoshop.  You can see the pencil sketch below.
