Bam! Oh, come on…how could I resist the idea of Doc meeting Frankenstein’s monster on a 1960’s rocket launch pad? You would have stopped everything to do it too! This is a landmark piece for me, as there is exactly 0% Photoshop coloring going on here (well, aside from the lettering). It’s done on comic board with pen and ink, copic grayscale markers, watercolor and colored pencils. I was going for a kind of homage to the great James Bama, Doc Savage book covers…tightly limited palette of color, with lots of atmosphere. I’m pretty pleased with it. 🙂
Here’s a look at the original art, which is for sale in my Comicart Gallery.
Alright. Play time is over. Time to get Doc, Clay and Carol out of that alien jam!
