|GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS #4 (Variant Cover). 2014.|
Ink on bristol board, 11 × 17″, colored by Ryan Browne.
The day is finally here! God Hates Astronauts #4 is out today (preview here), featuring my variant cover of Croad, the Unfortunate (and sporting colors by the man himself, Ryan Browne). I penciled this digitally, printed it out in cyan (with yellow and magenta perspective guidelines) and inked it traditionally.

Last, but not least, below is a page of inspiration, with all but my face blurred out. For the past year or so, most of my work has been supplemented by these multi-layer, high-res files. It's just the easiest way to keep all the pertinent reference organized and accessible. As you may have noticed, I added a pair of pint-sized grips for Croad's clawful face.
