Green Lantern cover part 2 by Devilpig Green Lantern cover part 2 by Devilpig
I forgot to post this. Once again, like the other GL cover I did, my marching orders were as follows: "Just draw a Green Lantern fist w/ blood on it." Well, once again, far be it from me to turn down an easy gig.
And I guess I nailed it because DC turned this image (sans blood) into a freaking HUGE banner at Comic-Con this year. Seriously, it was over 20 feet tall.

Pen and ink on paper. All the rest is Photoshop trickery.

NOTE: It's been pointed out to me how many times the Green Lantern fist motif has been used. Well, like I said earlier, DC asked for a raised fist w/ blood, and I gave them just that. To be honest, I didn't really know about the earlier versions. I was never a Green Lantern fan growing up. Anyways, it's bound to happen.

Here are some examples.

I really liked this cover when I saw it. Didn't know which issue it was for, but thought it rocked. Imagine my surprise when I opened up my comps and saw this staring back at me. Tis an honor to draw a book with a Dave Johnson cover!

If Vertigo is still insisting on color for PRJ, may I suggest Dave do the honors?

You should get your hands on that banner to hang in your home. Just drape it off your balcony.

Nice work.

must be nice to get the go to covers=] This is just as thought provoking as the last one with the cover simply being the ring.. This series is interesting, i like the fact that DC didn't shy away from giving the Guardians their due and asking the tough question with that. Wish that happened in real life....
