Dallas Comic Con Program Cover


Hi Kiddies...

I have collaborated on a project with fellow Star Wars Artist Tom Hodges. We were asked to do the cover for the Dallas Comic Con April Show. One of the features guests is Karen Allen of Raiders of the Lost Ark Fame. So we worked through a few ideas and finally decided on the scene in with the medallion and the money.

We wanted to try and split the cover between our two styles. So Tom did the layout sketch and inked it in his style, I then did my thing and fleshed her out. We were going for the Timm/Ross painting the Justice League look. We came out with the above image.

We also decided to try our personal hand at the same image. Me, creating the Photoreal version and Tom his animated version and created this triptych:

It's A Worthless Bronze Medallion, Marion

This is such a cool concept!! I also really like seeing the different styles from you guys. Composition, great and Indy looking a bit ... well like Indy in the background is a fantastic way to keep the compo balanced the the theme strong. Always liked the Marion character. Bravo

Wow, this is really cool. All three are great but that middle one sure has a new feel to it.

sorry Mr. Raats though the art is good
I think Marion was very womanlike yet tough, and a very bad actor (maybe that is the all problem)
