A Comic Book Art Blog by Paolo Rivera
This is the best comic book cover of 2012.
love the engraved look, this is just ink on board? No scratchboard? Incredible.
Awesome!A little insignia redesign?
Holy cow, Paolo! This is incredible!
I love this in all of its cross-hatched glory.
Whoa! The Franklin Booth-o-meter is off the scale!
This needs to be made into a poster.
This is truly stunning...wow.
Holy shit, dude.
Oh my god, this is gorgeous! This is already one of my favorite comic book covers ever
Wow. This one got quite a response. Thanks for all the kind words, everyone!And yes, it's just ink on board, but with a little digital help. I'll detail the whole process in a future Wacky Reference Wednesday.
Looks like something out of Dante's Inferno. Wicked job.
That's great work!
Dorè`s style! Beautiful!
The best DD cover since Alex Maleev's Daredevil Vol 2 #29 cover!! :-)Great!
Thanks, Stilos. Be sure to check out the time-lapse video of the cover. I just posted it: http://paolorivera.blogspot.com/2011/12/daredevil-10-time-lapse.html
That is some gorgeous inking.
Thanks, Anonymous! It felt good to break out the brushes again. Can't let my Dad have all the fun.
Can you get this out as a poster? Best cover in years!!
Thanks! Marvel turned this into a big one, though I couldn't tell you where to get it. But there's one hanging up in the office.
Since this books release, this remains as one of my all time favorite comic book covers. I do have a question, can you name the art style? I've done some research but can't seem to find a name for it.
Thanks, Adam! I based it mainly off of Gustave Doré's work, most famous for his etchings of The Inferno.
Fantastic thank you so much and keep up the great work!
