zoomed-in detail shot

Printed in "Grunts: War Stories" back in 2009 by Arcana Comics, the original had a lot of tiny details in the background that were nearly illegible in the size it was printed in. Here's a zoomed-in/cropped detail shot of the German Panzer Squad crossing a snowy bridge over a frozen creek.

2009 RECAP: DC COMICS "Ides of Blood" part 1

This was a 6-issue mini-series that was released through DC/Wildstorm between August 2010 and January 2011.  Writer Stuart C. Paul, interior artist Christian Duce and myself were all first-timers in professional comics on this project.
Near the end of 2010, it was announced that DC was going to be absorbing Wildstorm and discontinuing their books (while re-launching several of their characters and titles under the main DC banner). As a result: issue 6 had the DC logo on it (as opposed to Wildstorm's) - most of the editorial staff was let go or transferred to the DC digital department - and the title was never re-released in trade paperback form.

So much for continuing a working relationship with my first "in" in the comic's biz. I was pretty bummed. Still, the project was a huge learning experience for me and it fulfilled a dream I've had since I was about 10 or 12 years old.

Issue 1                    -                    Issue 2

Issue 3                    -                    Issue 4

Issue 5                    -                    Issue 6

2009 RECAP: DC COMICS "Ides of Blood" part 2

Here are some zoomed-in detail shots of each cover.

Fun facts: The woman on cover 2 was originally topless, with just her arm concealing her breasts - but they later asked me to raise the sheet to include most of her torso (as it was deemed: 'too racy').

I found the vampire woman on cover 5 to be a particularly challenging design as she was described as being a morbidly obese barbarian woman with snake eyes, fangs, snake skin and tattoos. I thought: "Tattoos on snake scales? ...How am I going to pull THAT off?"

Issue 3 detail               -                Issue 4 detail

Issue 5 detail               -                Issue 6 detail

2009 RECAP: DC COMICS "Ides of Blood" part 3

Upon getting hired, they sent me the scripts for each issue and I did numerous sketches for each cover - basing the compositions on their respective story content. 
Some of these are just a sampling (and some are just my own preliminary/study work), but I turned in 3 or 4 different designs (per issue) for the editors to choose from. 
Before the comics were released, they decided that they wanted to swap the covers of issues 1 & 2 - saying that the issue 2 cover was more of an attention grabber and spoke more to the theme of the series, over all.
