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.
