WAR HEROES COMPETITION


There was a recently announced competition to do a variant cover for Mark Millar and Tony Harris' War Heroes book. Thought i'd give it a go, so here it is....

























And also, the black-and-white original piece...

























There'll be a public vote as to who will make the final, and then the creators pick the actual winner, so i'll stick up the voting details once they're announced.

Cheers Jamie,

I use Pentel Colour Brush pens for brushwork, Faber Castell PITT pens for linework in general and Staedtler 1 and .05 pens for smaller detail. Once inkied, i generally go back over the piece with a Tipp-Ex pan to add more gestural lines and then go back over those white lines with the Brush Pen again to help integrate them a bit more into the image.

Glad you like, hopefully more will too!
