In case you haven't noticed, I won't be at SDCC this year. But, as always, my art dealer will be there at booth 4400. He'll have plenty of my work that you can browse, from pencils and inks to fully painted covers. Have a great weekend!

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 381

PLANET OF THE APES: URSUS #6. 2018.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

I've been a little behind on posting, so this is me trying to get back in the swing of things. This book has already hit stores, full details here! The last of the 6-issue mini-series, I highly recommend picking it up (and not just 'cause we did the covers).

I used all kinds of reference from screenshots to internet pics of toy figures. I had already sculpted an ape head for the previous covers (using the 3D program Sculptris), and it proved useful once again to get a novel point of view.

Hope you enjoyed this series of covers. We're big fans of the movies, so these were a joy to work on.
