Wow, that's gorgeous!
That pointillism technique is incredible! I'd love to see a close up shot to see what it looks like.
The colors, lighting effects, the pose, the background, his facial expression, all A plus, plus.
Thanks everybody!Scott, I will try to post a detail crop in the near future so you can see the texture more clearly. You may already know this, but to see the images I post at 100%, you have to open them outside of Blogger's "lightbox" feature. In other words, first click on the image, which should pop up slightly larger within the darkened window as usual, but then right click (or control+click on a Mac) and select "view image" from the pop-up menu. That should open the image in a new window and you can click it to zoom in a bit further. Now that I think about it, maybe I should turn off Blogger's lightbox setting to see if it just opens images full size without it...
Yes, turning off the "lightbox" setting in Blogger works.
These Aquaman covers have been absolutely brilliant. They are so amazing. I have never read an Aquaman book until I saw your cover to issue 1 and had to pick it up.
Thank you very much, Campbell! I am very glad to have reeled you in with the cover!
Joshua, will there be any opportunities to purchase original art from your auquaman covers?And I'm glad you did you because I LOVE Abnett and once I realized he was writing it, it just shot up to being one of my favorite books. The end of issue 2 with him and manta discussing missing each other's fathers had me grabbing the tissues.
I will indeed be selling the Aquaman originals, although not every cover exists as a piece of original art- some were mostly painted digitally. Please feel free to use the contact form to send me a message directly if you are interested in a specific piece and want to discuss the details before I make them public.While I always liked Aquaman as a character and felt like there was a lot of potential to do something interesting artistically (which is why I chose him when offered a list of characters to work on), I actually hadn't read an Aquaman book either. I'm doubly happy to be providing covers for a book that is an enjoyable read as well, which isn't always the case!
God, I love your work.
