Evolution of a cover pt2

Bobby suggested adding a few more elements to give the drawing more of a WWII vibe. Thank God for Photoshop! I didn't have to redraw or apply paste ups to the original drawing. I will admit, Bobby's suggestion worked out well.

Evolution of a cover drawing.

After collecting photos of the actors I wanted to "cast" for my Operation Silver Moon cover (L-R Conrad Veidt, Christopher Meloni and Barry Atwater) I did several sketches and then did a fairly tight pencil drawing. Oh yeah....and I drew in the Wolf.

Next, I pulled out the old Windsor Newtons and applied the ink.

Pages 3 and 8 from Operation Silver Moon, Old Wounds in pencil form. Being a huge fan of classic horror films, this issue's fight scene was a blast to create.

Overcoming a first ever double page spread. Mr. Nash really pushed my skills on this book!
