Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 396

BLACK PANTHER VOL. 7 #6. 2018.
Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 × 17″. Full details.

For this cover, I received some help from Massimiliano Failla, an Italian artist I'd been corresponding with over the years. Aside from being a traditional artist, he was familiar with DAZ Studio, a 3D app that's been sitting, unused, on my iMac for years. He was kind enough to create a lighting mock up for me, and so I hired him to do more. I'm slowly learning the program myself, but he helped me out when I was in a pinch.

The other 3D models are from Anatomy360.info (which is not just great, but easy to use). The Colt 1911 is a model that I lit in Photoshop. As usual, the stellar layout was provided by Daniel Acuña. The issue is out today, full details at Marvel.
