Superb work. The way you've used the silhouette of the trees in the composition is particularly appealing.

Thanks, Julien! I wanted to keep the same colors I had used in the samurai comic from last year (both stories happen in the same universe), and since I liked how the trees worked in that one, I thought I would include trees here as well. :D The black sheep by DiegoTripodi

Oh this is brilliant. It's even better than that. I recognized those as the kind of colors you'd pick, but I didn't suspect that the connexion was so direct. A really neat idea, perfectly executed.

Thanks again, Julien! I'll most likely stick to the same palette for the cover of the second issue... :plotting:

Aw man, I wish I was going to SPX this year. Maybe we should do a comic trade? ;)

Yes! :D That would be great! As soon as I get some copies (I still have some work left to do on this comic :faint:) I'll let you know, so we can trade comics! :w00t:

Realizing the full impact of a genuinely inspired and iconic character; just classic, awesome stuff.

:faint: Thanks a lot, my brother! I made 3 or 4 covers until deciding to go with this one, which I also picked because it seemed to work well with the cover from the samurai comic I had previously drawn (both stories happen in the same comic-book universe :D).

It's just awesome, brother; I'm only going to be the first of many to compare your talents with those of Jack Kirby. :iconhappycrynod:

In these deadline-after-deadline days I'm having lately (not complaining, glad to have work! :laughing:), I surely would love to have Jack Kirby's prodigious output, if nothing else, brother! :D

Confession: Years ago, when I would get dog-tired while working in some big/time-consuming project (like making a comic!) I would sometimes think of those stories of Jack Kirby drawing 4 pages a day, while at the same time being married, and having kids to raise, etc-- it helped to make me go "I have to go on!". :w00t: Just like one could feel after watching "Rocky"! :lmao:

:lmao: That makes perfect sense to me! 
Harlan Ellison has always been the paradigm for me-- giving it all at work, and then turning around and doing the same in his private life and as a member of the audience; between Kirby and Ellison's examples, we'll soon be ready for hospital beds, my brother!

:rofl: Yeah, I find Harlan Ellison very, very motivational as well, brother! In fact, much before I have gotten around to read the stories about Jack Kirby's productivity, I would fairly often check those introductions (which we talked about like a zillion times already, I know, I know! :laughing:) that he wrote for "Dangerous visions", and to me they really were a huge source of inspiration!

Not in the sense of inspiring the work I was doing at the time, which were mainly samples of all type (from attempts of making drawings in the style of children books, to porn-- whatever could be of use to get me a first job involving pictures! :D), but it was very inspiring because, for all the stories about Ellison being usually angry at something, those texts to me were so optimistic! Very powerful stuff, and I was so lucky to get to read that especially at that time, in my early 20s, when things looked a bit bleak. I barely know Ellison's bibliography, but those introductions were more than enough of a reason for me to have a high admiration for the guy! :nod:

Totally agreed, Diego-- the Shatterday introduction ("The Mortal Dreads"), all by itself, was enough to get me through the first year of art school, when I was 21, and going through a very rough time, indeed! Like you said, the anger was always there, but he found a way to make it a force for positivity, and that's a pretty addictive piece of alchemy!

Piece of alchemy! Indeed, brother! In some ways, I think most of my favourite works (books, comics, movies, etc) are a bit like that as well-- if nothing else for a particular period of time, but I think it's the coolest when that happens! :D
