Cover Art for the comics
« on: May 10, 2010, 08:43:34 am »
Some of the covers for the upcoming Cry Wolf comic are available online so I thought I'd post them here for you to see:

Artwork: Brett Booth


Artwork: Brett Booth


Artwork: Jordan Gunderson, this one in B&W isn't final artwork. Still to be colored but nice to see it.

Nice looking covers.  Not sure about the color of Anna's hair, though, as I think its too dark.  In the books it is more than once described as "whiskey-colored" so I always pictured her hair as more dark blonde than actual brown.  ???

That's just a trick of the light, you'd have to see her drawn in daylight. :)

Love the last one, that looks splendid!

Moon Called #2 cover art hasn't been released yet but here's Moon Called #3 and #4. Amelia Woo has taken over the cover art in addition to the interior art. I think she's done a fantastic job with them.

Have a look at a cover that might have been. Al Rio is a fantastic comic book artist, ultimately, the cover wasn't chosen but you can have a look at it and it's also available for purchase on Al's website. Art for MC#2 will be done by Amelia (which isn't up yet).

Even the infamous crescent wrench.

But do beware the toad burps.
