Punisher Max 15 by Devilpig Punisher Max 15 by Devilpig
You know what sucks? The way I work. I agonize for 2 weeks to come up with a cover design that I don't hate, and then it only takes me 1 day to do it from start to finish. Imagine if that were the other way around? I'd probably be over rendering and adding so much detail it would make your eyes bleed. But instead I wait until one day before the deadline to force me into doing something.

Bah! I guess it is what it is.

This one was hard because I've already done a Punisher cover dealing with Frank's origin story. Seen here [link]

It's still effing amazing. Maybe the short time-frame helps. Necessity is the mother of invention, after all.

Loving the red on the jacket and the 'crack' in the skull logo.

Yeah, I was gonna say, how often does Frank have to go through this?!
Great take! The descending caskets...I would never think of something like that.

I like the effect you've illustrated with the picnic blanket. Having both look like a game board and a blanket. Overall, well done.

Well, they say "Less is More" and I think your covers are great thanks to their simplicity.
So the way you work is the right one. Keep on following that path! :)

I don't know, some of the best work is created exactly that same way. At least you don't end with the the problems you identified, or looking like a cliche.

I really like this; I'm not a huge Punisher fan but I'd probably read this if I was in the shop and I saw the cover on the shelf.

Reminds me of Ennis's first Punisher (MAX) issue with LaRosa on art duty. Great Job!

I wouldn't sweat the process cause the results are golden. Just think if you worked on it for two weeks straight and just junked it up with a bunch of shit that made it not nearly as effective or attractive, somethin to think about. As per usual your work is pretty fantastic, keep it up man.

2 weeks to conceptualize and a day to finish the actual cover?

The long labor is probably why your covers are always profound because they got a lot of love. And fans, like me, won't have it any other way.

I absolutely love this! I am not crazy, however, about the direction they are going with this story. I know you have nothing to do with it, Dave, but I gotta vent. I don't like the idea that Frank wanted his family to die. That takes away from the character ANY redeeming qualities and simply makes him a psycho who happens to kill bad guys. The Frank Castle I know and love LOVED his family, that's why he is the Punisher, not that he always was the Punisher and was just looking for an excuse or a way out of his family so he could wage war. I'm hoping they will do something surprising to make me change my mind or in the end show Frank has not been a soulless killing machine his whole life. Again, great cover, Dave!
