Inked....

That was fun to do...but now that I inked it I think I see something funny with his legs not being quite right. Back to the drawing board!

That's really cool Alex! It has a certain "EC" feel, which I think is quite proper for a fanzine.

Very cool. I like this kind of "cover" (like they do with songs) of a cover.
In fact they's a whole blog about this kind of thing (most are pretty weak...but it's interesting, in a way)

ok...I just looked at the "covered" blog again. It's pretty bad....but I like the idea. I just wish they were done more like yours, meaning,a different take on a well known cover, in your style...but still well done.
Unfortunately, the "well done" part seems to be missing from a lot of the "covered" entries.

Norm,

Looking at the site I found a take on a Neal Adams cover of Green Lantern #76 that you mentioned earlier:

I've really enjoyed the Covered blog.

Although some of it's just artists trying their best to reproduce what another artist has done, and others are trying to do their version, a lot of it seems to be some kind of commentary that goes a little deeper.

For example, Dan Scanlon's version of Kirby's X-Men #1:

http://coveredblog.blogspot.com/2009/11/dan-scanlon-covers-x-men-1.html

It shows how little the "action" on the cover makes sense, when you pull back from the in-your-face Marvel style of blocking the action. So Cyclops is hitting Magneto's forcefield with his eyebeam, but Iceman is tossing a couple of snowballs that are an obvious miss, as if he's aiming for someone behind Magneto we can't see.

And then there's Angel, Beast, and Marvel Girl who are all doing nothing but posing.

Plus this all takes place on a red carpet, either in a field of snow, or against a blank white wall, either of which is weird. This kind of thing brings attention to the original artist's choices, dissecting their style in a way that regular written criticism could not.

What was this blog about again? Oh yeah - Alex!

I've seen a series of rectangles within rectangles used like this before, as an effect...possibly to convey time travel? What was you intent, if not just a design idea?

BTW: I think your version is superior to the original Warlock cover, if for no other reason because he's floating in space in yours, rather than tippy-toeing across the bottom. I don't know if Starlin drew it that way or Marvel over cropped it, but those toes touching the bottom edge bug me.

In any case, good work, Alex!

Leif,

Hey, always a pleasure to hear your thoughts about art...mine or anyone else. This is a space to talk about anything that comes to mind :)

Thank you for the kind words about the drawing, and yeah, the series of rectangles were supposed to represent movement. I wanted to draw someone in space (and that meant kind of floating), but at the same time I wanted to create a sense of movement (through time and/or space).

I am starting to really focus on drawing everything one-to-one. This was done 8.5 by 11.
