I thought it’d be nice to share with you the cover for the Cleopatra in Spaaace! book all that guest art I’ve been posting for the past month is for.
Still waiting for the final product to arrive at my door, but the books will be 48 pgs and contain all of chapter 1, some extra stuff like sketches and processes, and of course a giant guest art gallery. It’ll debut at the San Diego Comic-Con (where I’ll be hiding behind table N-05 in the Small Press section). I’m pretty excited!
I also made this little process flash animation of the cover. You can view it HERE.
Haha! Fantastic. I defintely need to draw more shots of Khensu bathing himself.
Eddie’s skill level blows me away, and I’ve been a fan of his work ever since he handed me a b&w preview copy of Red’s Planet at MegaCon a year and a half ago. So I’m totally excited to have Eddie updating Red’s story in FULL ON GORGEOUS COLOR every week! Everything Eddie does is amazing- from his draftsmanship, to his pacing, to his expressions, to the way his coloring enhances every panel- you really have no reason at all for not following Red’s Planet. One of the best webcomics out there.
Let’s make it a Khensu day! Not only does he get some star treatment on this week’s page, but here are a couple of awesome fan arts dedicated to everyone’s favorite space kitty.
First up, a pin-up for the new Cleo book (debuting at SDCC!) by my good friend and excellent draftsman, Dan Boyd!
The linework on that is impeccable. I just love it. Dan draws some amazing stuff, which you can check out on his blog. but what I really want to point you to is these Reginald Crabapple comics which were drawn like a page an hour. And they are SUPER GOOD. That is crazy. Dan is crazy.
And Eric White surprised me today with this colorful Khensu sketchcard:
So cute! Who doesn’t want to drift though though the beauty of the cosmos on their own personal asteroid? Check out more of Eric’s work on his DeviantArt page!
Boy. I just don’t know what to say about all this fan art that has been rolling in. The fact that so many of you like this comic enough to draw your own takes on the characters is humbling to say the least. This time it’s the tubular Tom Dell’Aringa who sends some awesome art my way.
This is actually the first time a Xerx soldier has shown up in color! I think Tom did an excellent job with the color scheme. But poor Khensu! I need to see a follow-up now, Tom. Lets see how Cleo handles this situation. ;)
Tom was one of the first to support this comic, a loooooong time ago back in January 2010 when Cleopatra in Space was still in it’s infancy. I actually have some of my own guest art in the works for his excellent and hilarious sci-fi series, Marooned. Make sure you’re following it if you aren’t already!
