Jack Kirby's Incredible Hulk! The Making of a Sketch Cover!

Had so much fun working on this new INCREDIBLE HULK sketch cover! I wanted to get that wonderful, weighty, powerful Jack Kirby look, so I based this on one of Jack's very fist drawings of the Hulk! Click images below to enlarge!

Below: My rough sketch, drawn directly on the cover,
along with gray marker tones put in as an
"underpainting" to get things started!



Below: Adding colors atop the underpainting, carefully
following the value contrasts set down in the black-and-white
tones..




Below: Almost done, after adding the color marker,
plus a few touches with crayon, watercolors, and ink...




Below: The finish cover, after adding some acrylic highlights, a 
few gray washes here and there, and some colored pencil touches!

BATMAN-ALMOST GOT 'IM Original Comic Art! Rare Roughs and Pencils!

I had so much fun working on this wonderful little custom comic (that was included in a now-classic book and tape set), adapting the famed "Almost Got 'im" episode of BATMAN-THE ANIMATED SERIES! 

Here are a few pages of my rough pencils for the book, featuring not only the Caped Crusader, but also Killer Croc, Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, Two-Face, and, of course, Harley Quinn (in what's arguably her first comic book appearance)!
