LIGHTNING BOLTS!!! Love this one. This was one of those covers where I kept having to tell people “It will be cool, I promise.” It didn’t get the lightning bolts until the coloring process, so it wasn’t really exciting until now!
Group shot! Another cover concept of C.O.G. This was surprisingly the most difficult to color because each character has their own color scheme and I needed to to unify it. This also features characters not appearing on other covers before: Mrs. Applegarth, Pruitt & oh so sexy Dr. Cavendish.
The Dance between Myles & Delyth. In the background is the sinister Lord Abendroth. A lot of research went into Delyth’s dress. It is chartreuse, the same color of absinthe, lol. Contrary to popular belief, Victorian loved bright colors for their evening dressed.
And we get to my third Cover Concept for C.O.G.! This one features the Aeolus Airship and introduces the dashing Plunkett and the spunky Pyott. Plunkett’s the dark haired guy swinging along with Rosejack, and Pyott is the fellow in the jetpack and wings.
More covers for C.O.G.! This one has the uber sexy Rosejack being uber sexy, lol. This was fun because I got to show the two different versions of Myles, the everyday inventor and the gentleman.
At last! The first of my series of potential covers for C.O.G. This is the Golden Sparrows Cover. I features Delyth & Myles, with Myles being all mysterious, lol. I hand stained the paper texture used here and scanned them into the computer. At the moment, this is perhaps going to be the first cover in the series.
This in the 6th and final pencil and layout cover. Though I have tried to do as much as I can in drawing, this one is going to have a lot of digital lightning bolts and currents throughout it. The composition was in a way a reverse of the first issue, but not literally. I completed it surprisingly quickly.
