Abe Sapien no.2 Devil does not by Devilpig Abe Sapien no.2 Devil does not by Devilpig
Well, I can finally post this after sitting on it for a while. Its issue two of a two parter. Personally, it's one of my favorite covers I've done in a long time. Why? It's probably because it's different from most of my work. And I really had fun rendering it.
But maybe you won't agree. Who knows, I guess time will tell.

I also have to thanks Mignola for letting me play in his sandbox.

Pen and ink on board, colored in photoshop.

I read it. It was awesome. Abe was so badass. And it was nice that Hellboy had so much faith in him.

The metamorphosis of Abe Sapien, lost in his telepathic world of accessibility. Love it. I hope to be where you are one day.

Amazing! Simply amazing! I really captures the pure weird-joy of Mignola's universe, while maintaining your style and flare. The typography really sets it off as well. Great job!

I love to get your opinion on some of my pieces if you get a minute. You're one of my faves, so any tidbits would be greatly appreciated.

Really looking forward to The Burning Hand. BEWARE THE LOBSTER CLAW!!

It's not a fan piece. It's a cover to an Abe Sapien book. I kinda do this stuff for a living. But thanks.

I thought it said "THE DEVIL DOES NOT JESUS" which would be true i f jesus were a verb.

"I shalt Jesus thine soul for all eternity!"
