The No More Heroes cover!
« on: September 06, 2010, 02:56:03 PM »
I thought I'd post this in here because, well, I did half of it  :grin:



The front was done by a chap called Jason Strutz - here's his website:http://strutzillustration.com/
And the back's by me  :azn: you can click here to see a bigger, readable version! --> http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/babies4feet/LOTLD/NMHBookCoverBACK.jpg

Took me flipping ages, but it's a rare instance where what I saw in my head ended up on screen.

Looking good, Rev :afro:

Great work!

The cover illustration got me wondering how thick the fingernails would be of a hand large enough to palm the world like a baseball...  :scratch:

Phantastic work, Rev!  I really dig the back cover, but you know that already.  (Doesn't hurt to post my thoughts on two forums.)  :cheesy:

very-nice, and very-nice to see that both the front and the back cover complement the left-hand!
[again i wonder if the artist held a base-ball in the left-hand and drew with the right-hand - but that could be me deja-vuing, again]

And thanks everybody for the lovely comments - I feel like my child's taken his first steps in front of an appreciative audience.  Ok now that just makes me sound like a right weirdo.

It''s very eye catching. I love the idea of using the front page of a newspaper for the back cover of the book.
Did you do the drawing of the skeleton with the trilby, Rev? 
Some may say slaughtered is too strong a word...but I like the sound of it.

I'm throwing all my modesty out the window - yes, I did it all, the skeleton/newspaper/text etc hahahah I'm not arrogant, I'm just better than everybody else  :cheesy:

But seriously, thanks Caz.  It's a mixture of drawing and image manipulation, which I think is my forté.  Someone asked if there was going to be ads in the back of the book, like in older comics, so I think I'll make some (to avoid copyright issues and also cos it'll be fun), see if they turn out okay.

Looks cool. I really did mean to write something for this, but it never happened.  :scratch:
