Wonder city

I was recently asked to do a pinup for a european graphic novel called "Wondercity". Dont think it's in print yet, but there's some samples up here . It looks fantastic. Well worth checking out!

Anyhow, here's what I came up with tonight. Hope you all like!!

Fabulous. Love the texture on the boat, and the red haired kid. He reminds me a little of this kid that was at my son's practice the other day. I decided to bring along my sketchbook, and couldnt help but notice how interested this fellow was in watching me sketch, and how determined he was to try to make sure I didn't catch him watching. Don't know how that really relates to the pic, but just the same, great stuff sir Lambey.

Howdy Steve.

Love this incredibly charming illo here.

great design, color, composition, and you get better and better at adding simulated painterly textures with each piece it seems.

BRAVO!

I'm posting on this drawing but this is for all of them... WICKED STUFF!!! The Batman beatup line kills me. And the Mario one killed me again ( who knew that could happen... I wonder how many lives I have left )( maybe I'll do like in the SNES Mario and steal them from Luigi... oh Luiiiiiiigiiiiii ).

Just like the books I grew up reading...Classics! I love it. Your style is amazing. I'm just experimenting with the photoshop brushes and having a terrible time. Other artist tell me to try painter...I just may. As for Wonder City, have you heard of any release date? Just from the front covers and teaster pages, I'm, hooked. Will your design be a variant cover for one of the issues? How cool is that?!
