Very nice James! The bottom area seems a little busy. I'm not sure what is happening there. Love the detail and colors!!! I also like the way you used the negative shapes of the plants. Your drawing is amazing! How do you go about coloring it?

Beautiful, as usual!

Still tried to find an email of vertigo people to plead for a collected covers book, with no luck.

I hope your next few books will be on glossy paper! and oversized. ;]

James, I have noticed that your later covers are drawn using blue pencil. Does this give you more flexibility in photoshop after the art is scanned?
The cover looks great!
best,

shawn - I color this particular piece in photoshop using various layer effects. My original vision was to have one large , abstract shape on the cover, and have the bottom spill into a confusing war scene.

mal - thanks for trying!

alvaro - good luck!

chris - blue pencil does make it a little easier to isolate and manipulate the color. Other than that, I like how it looks!

hello james fantastic work as allways. :)
i have a question for you. When you paint on photoshop, or any other digital program, do you use a wacom table or its just simple mouse? It also seems that you do almost all the shadows and glows on the final sketch.

boredome - I use a wacom. A simple graphire will work well and reduce strain on your hand. The Intuos is great for painting in photoshop due to its higher sensitivity.
