New cover

Post by gideon_thorne »

This is pretty much the final cover for the A9 Helm of Night module. Thought folks might enjoy this one. I haven't played around with 3 point perspective in a while.

Looks OK, but the image size skews everything making it hard to see at once.

Pretty awesome.
I get a sort of Batman/Spawn vibe from the way the guy is sitting there and his long cape.

Not a big stretch. I'm a huge fan of both characters, and, once upon a time, I had aspirations of being a comic artist.

Taught myself to draw from comic styles in fact.

Which leads to...

I've never read an issue of Crusader (I'm new ) so I don't know if this is a ridiculous thing to say but... have you ever thought of putting a mini-series comic in there? Or, at least, suggesting that such an addition be added?

There actually is one in there. Jason Walton, one of the other artists is doing it.

One of the reasons I didn't go into comic art is that 1) I don't have the speed for it and 2) I cant do the repetition.

Ah, that's cool. On more reason to pick up a subscription.

I can't really imagine having anything near the patience required for art. As a result, I have a great respect for those who do.
Here is a random question, Mr. Bradley... Do you sell prints/cells of your work?

Interrresting. I assume that isn't done through TLG.

I think rain would give this piece a fantastic injection of atmosphere by the way.

Yep, itza good cover for the series to be sure. Now, if ony the mods could get out as fast as your artwork.
It's kind of a disorientating angle. Makes for a feeling to a piece of art that is hard to pull off. Nice job.

You know, on a second look (at first it was hard to scroll around and get the whole thing, so I just C&Pd it), I really like this one. Will it be framed by a particular color? When I view it, it reminds me of something Vulgar at the Unicorn...

Well, thank you, but I don't do art, my training is in logistics.
