a Jersey Gods pinup

Jersey Gods is an incredible comic and if you're not reading it you are truly missing out. While at Comicon I got to meet the writer Glen Brunswick (and hopefully next year I'll get to hassle the artist Dan McDaid). He gave me a copy of the first issue which I poured over on the train back home and after that and the awesome painting by Toby Cypress ( which you can see here ) I was inspired to do this...

I started with a thumbnail that is long gone and started drawing.
once I had that done and inked I wanted to start painting. I was a little nervous because I didn't know what I wanted to do with the colors so thankfully I scanned first then painted.after I was here, I was a little dissapointed because I lost some of the linework. So I took the inks from the first scan, put them on top and dropped the opacity to what I wanted. I also adjusted the colors in photoshop, added text to and finished up the highway sign for Cherry Hill. I also added some color behind Barock to try and get him to "pop" a little more.
and that's it. On another note, I've been neglecting this blog for awhile now but I'm hassling alot of editors trying to find Comics, Cover and Illustration work and I think having more of an internet presence couldn't hurt. So I'm going to be making more of an effort to make this a busy place again. Till then, go check out Jersey Gods. Seriously.

The End.
