Legion of Super-Heroes 80 Cover Recreation
Continuing my cover recreation studies of great artists & covers...

In this case, Legion of Super Heroes #80
The original cover was created by Alan Davis and Mark Farmer, copyright DC Comics.

Marvel 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, Marvel Presents #3, the first Guardians of the Galaxy series.
The original cover was created by Al Milgrom and John Romita, copyright Marvel Comics.

Silver Riders Illo #5 - Riding into the Hills
I started working on a new series of illustrations for new pulp publisher Airship 27 - in this case, a Weird Western entitled Silver Riders, by Greg Hatcher.

In this fourth illustration: The four of them riding along the trail, Brainerd in lead, with Cheyanne right behind him, while Lisbet and Fallon ride side by side…as she questions him.

Silver Riders Illo #4 - Fallon chastises Brainerd
I started working on a new series of illustrations for new pulp publisher Airship 27 - in this case, a Weird Western entitled Silver Riders, by Greg Hatcher.

In this fourth illustration: Both Fallon and blond-haired Brainerd in stable, standing next to the big stallion, Brainerd his holding up one of its legs with one hand while Fallon smoothes over the horseshoe with a filing iron. Brainerd looks annoyed at Fallon.

Attempting to draw comix since 1984.
Interests
Between 10-15 years ago, I used to draw comic page commissions where I would offer to illustrate a page of script by the commissioner.  The idea was that this would set me apart from all of the artists doing mostly pinup work, and it also sounded like a fun project.  It *was* pretty fun for a while, although the kind of jobs that would come my way quickly transitioned (so to speak) into mostly fetish or transformation pieces. 

I was OK with this for a while, and did them for a couple of years.  I felt an ego boost from having folks enjoy my work and be willing to pay for it, but eventually wasn't real happy with the subject matter and ceased doing fetish-style work about ten years ago.

At the same time, I would post the work here on DA, and they would get a *ton* of views and faves.. which is also gratitifying.  As years went by, I found that I wasn't super proud of a lot of the work I had posted due to the subject matter, and I'd also improved as an artist/inker to the point of disliking my earlier work because it wasn't as well done.

I removed a goodly chunk of the more risque pieces from my gallery, but left a few milder ones... which still get a few favorites a month, many years later.  These faves still feed my ego, but the work is so far removed from the quality of work I do now, that even the more innocuous ones make me cringe when I see them.

Also, those faves mean people are seeing that work, enjoying it, and might even enjoy my more recent work, which is pretty mild in comparison.

Anyway, I think I've convinced myself while writing this into doing another purge of the rest of that stuff from my gallery... it's just not 'me' anymore.   Even though a few of them have tens of thousands of views. :D
