Mock up cover idea


This is NOT official! It's just an idea Working on a coloured version too - but couldn't resist this ultraviolent sin-city-esque version.

PS borrowed the official logo - hope you don't mind Kev, Dave & Rich!

  1. Nice work, it's very violent and a really striking image.

  2. Ooooh, pretty.

    I'm flattered that you chose to make it a mock-up of Zarjaz, and it really works.

  4. Ooh that's got some oomph! Could there be scope for a Dredd tale in a Sin City style? That would be all kinds of fun :)

  5. Cheers everyone. Looking at it now, I'm not sure if the inking is up to scratch, and you can still see traces of the pencil (I'm terrible for that), so I might have a go at inking it again with a wacom I've borrowed. My skills on that front certainly need honing!

    BTW Bolt, if you wanted to use this in any way, just let me know! I know you've got your covers sorted for a while, but maybe a starscan inside? Cheeky aren't I. but you never know if you don't ask!

  6. Ah, but you're always your own worst critic! I had to go looking for any pencils on it... And tbh, I'm more of a fan of the messier stuff that does show pencils, so it's fine by me!

  7. Yeah, i guess you have to tough on yourself - if you were thoroughly happy with everything you did, you'd never push yourself to improve.

    Love your unfinished Flint montage btw, truly superb inking skills man!
