…So, Deathblow #2 comes out tomorrow and, for any of you that liked the first issue, I think you’ll really dig this one as well. I felt more comfortable and happier with the art, and the story is starting to get fleshed out in ways that I sure as hell wasn’t expecting…. Heheheh. Let me tell ya’, that Azzarello guy is crazy and looooves his curve balls. It’s pretty damn enjoyable to get his scripts and see just what he’s doing to poor ol’ Mr. Cray. (^_^)
…Anyway, very much in the same way as the first cover, Brian had a pretty good idea of what he wanted on this second one as well, so I did a few ‘takes’ on it, and these here are two of ‘em. The final piece always changes a bit (I hate drawing the same exact thing twice ‘cause it bores me to tears), BUT the overall idea remains, just with some tweaks here and there. I still don’t have a whole lot of color work under my belt, so I still get intimidated a bit by it (so many damn choices!!!), BUT I was happy with the overall mood on this one…There are always things that you wish you could go back and change, BUT I think that’s one of those things that ALL artists have to deal with. Sometimes you just have to know when to let a piece go, and more times than not, those are the evil, bastardly deadlines! (^_^)
…Alright y’alls, for those of you kind enough to get Deathblow tomorrow, let me know what you think.
By the way, I was really looking forward to the convention this weekend, but unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it because deadlines have my ass glued to the drawing table. (x_x)
