DC Comics Presents 3 Cover Recreation by dalgoda7
DC Comics Presents 3 Cover Recreation
This is something I've been wanting to try for a while - a straight recreation (as opposed to the mash-up cover recreations I've done in the past) of the cover of one of the comics that helped change me into a comic fan as a kid.

In this case, DC Comics Presents #3.

The original cover was created by the great Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, copyright DCComics.

Here is the original cover:

Story by :iconearthmanprime:
Loading...

- How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Nearly 10 years.  Seems like longer!  :D

- What does your username mean?
Dalgoda was one of my favorite indy comics from the 80s, and I used to draw little cartoon heads of the character on napkins when I'd go to a restaurant.  At some point I tried using it as a username on a website years ago, and was told it was not available, hence 'Dalgoda7'.

- Describe yourself in three words.
Cartoonist. Daydreamer. Obsessed.

- Are you left or right handed?
Left for mousing, right everything else.

- What was your first deviation?
A scratchboard of a theme I'd done years prior, combining Captain America with the Red Skull.
Skullcap by dalgoda7

- What is your favourite type of art to create?
Fully inked & lettered comic pages, although I have to admit I really love doing cover recreation inking exercises even though they're not 'my' art.

- If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital coloring. 

What was your first favourite?
This 'beauty', I can barely remember that far back!
Beauty by hnedoocko

- What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I tend to favorite other black and white comic art the most, it's my favorite.

- Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Huh, I can't pick just one, but over the years I think I've become pretty decent pals with cluedog  , EarthmanPrime  , besnglist  , and curtsibling , exchanging art or collaborating on projects, etc.  There are a dozen or so more folks on here where I like everything they do.

- If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
At least the four nice folks above, along with a few more. 

- How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
EarthmanPrime and I have collaborated on what I would call some of my finest work to date.  At some point we'll be printing that work as a book.  I think that's a pretty decent impact!  When I win the lottery, he's first on my list to bring into the comic book creator compound that I'll build in Portland.

- What are your preferred tools to create art?
Raphael 8404 brush, Koh-i-noor drawing ink, Strathmore 300 bristol paper.  Photoshop, for constructing layouts.

- What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Just at my boring 'ol drafting table/studio. 

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Getting a Daily Deviation for Multiverse II by dalgoda7was pretty darn awesome.

Former Human Beings Model Sheets - The Sniper by dalgoda7
Former Human Beings Model Sheets - The Sniper
I'm working with an old friend and her band on a concept album project which will feature the band members as sci-fi comic characters.  If all works out, there will be a short comic by me included in their CD, as well as cover art!  In the meantime, I'm doing some model sheets to work out their looks (which will also be the basis for their stage outfits for their performances of the album).
