2000AD cover sketches
When Tharg the Mighty asked me recently to do a cover for 2000AD featuring a zombie character (not giving anything away!) I found myself doing something I hadn't done before, that being drawing one of the undead professionally. You'd think, after almost twenty years (on and off) in the comic book industry I'd have got around to drawing bloomin zombies by now! Well, no. This is a first for me.
I haven't had as much time on this as I'd like, due to my other commitments, but it was fun to play around with. I wanted to do a companion piece to my recent Dredd cover so lucky for me the colour sketch above was approved by the galactic green editor supreme, it being my first attempt at the design. It's nice when the first idea you have fits what your boss is thinking of.
The image below is a sneak peek composit of the finished cover.
