Lobster Johnson issue 3 cover by Devilpig Lobster Johnson issue 3 cover by Devilpig
Not sure I dig this one, if I'm being honest. But, they can't all be winners. Hell, not even sure if I like the one after either. *sigh* But the cover to issue 5 is OK.

The title, "The Burning Hand" reminds me of that Nick Cave song about a stranger with a red right hand!:nod:

Don't beat yourself up. It'll work a lot better with title, credits and barcade on it.

It totally has the right feel - instantly 30s, but that's as much the design and color pallette. I like it!

I love the drawing.... I have to say, "get rid of the shadow under the title".... maybe just a orange/yellow outline.

The color pallet is a winner and the design is eye catching, but the drop shadow and especially the text color are a bit of a problem (though I'd bet real $$$ those two bits weren't your choice). The value is too close to that of the lower dress and it disappears (yeah, I've been reading your blog).

The Burning Hand? I think you get that from too much masterbation. They have a cream to take care of that.

I think its a pretty cool cover, Dave.

Feels like you need a gradient on the lettering to indicate the light/shadow relationship more.

Otherwise it's rather peculiar design. Part of me likes it, part of me wishes the hand was a big motif in the background. But I see you trying to balance it with the flaming skull.

I like that you keep trying stuff.
Very inspiring.

It may be more work but I think you should hand draw the letters on these retro type of covers.

Well, I like it...and since I'm fan of the artwork of the "pulp" magazines, I personally think that you nailed it, you brought in that pulp flavor.


S'why I'm faving it.

I love the illustration. The placement of the font bothers me. It just looks like it was just typed with no real thought going into it. I would drop "the" down the baseline of burning and then raise up "and" in Hand so that the g and the d are intruding in the space of Hand and Burning respectively. Also the white fore ground fading into the image gives the impression of depth but the drop shadow from title flattens it out.

Just my two cents.

PS I will probably be doing some panels in the near future and will be asking your opinion so please feel free to remember my post when you hand me my arse. :D

I don't know if you even care much for my opinion, but maybe her left arm could go over the strange triangular gradient. Or maybe You could remove the gradient all together and replace it with a sort of ripped/brush texture like they did in the old painted movie posters, Then maybe change the text's color, or give it a stroke because it's not reading well in that shade, and it's clashing a bit with the color you chose for the dropped shadow. Maybe the dropped shadow could be more sharp, Maybe the whole text could be a bit more hand-written. I don't know, there's lots of things that could be done with this.

I'll shut up before I get shot.
