"And I won’t feel
Detective Comics 30 is out this April, I hope you’re all as excited as I am! Here’s a peak at my process work for issue 30’s cover.
As usual it starts out with a couple of layouts. Once they give me the go ahead I do digital roughs of the art work before printing it out for inking. Even though I was mostly using silhouettes I still drew out the figures so that I can be accurate with their shapes.
The inking process is still traditional, using pens, brushes, and watercolor for the artwork. After scanning the art, and doing a few tweaks, I color the artwork in Photoshop. In this scenario I created two versions of the cover, a full color and a muted one (the second version is for a digital combo pack of the book). Added a little bit of splatter to the muted one to add some movement to the piece, and voila.
See you all in April!
I made this for Bat-fans and people watching True Detective. Because I have too much time on my hands.
"And finally, my son, I ask that you never abandon this city to fate."
The last will and testament of the deceased: Thomas Wayne.
In the event of my death, I hereby declare that all my worldly possessions pass to my son, Bruce Wayne.
Bruce, I ask that you honor the Wayne Family legacy, and commit yourself to the improvement of Gotham City, its institutions, and its citizens. Please, be strong. You are young, but destined for great things. Make the most of your opportunities. Use them to give back to a city that has given us so much; to change the lives of millions of people. Do not be frivolous with this wealth. Please, do not waste it all on fast cars, and outrageous clothes, and the pursuit of a destructive lifestyle.
Invest in Gotham, treat its people like family. Watch over them and use this money to safeguard them from forces beyond their control.
My deepest regret, as I will not see you grow into the good man I know you will become.
And finally my son, I ask that you never abandon this city to fate.
We have lived through dark days, and no doubt there are more to come. But it is the good and great men who stand up for Gotham when others turn and run.
In death, I will love you forever.
