Very nice cover sir! Looking at from iPhone first in the cafe. The background looks like a boba fett mask. When I Zoom in of course. I dig the colors very much!

It's something I've seen a lot of times, but I love that sun. I think your stroke is quite effective here, it all fits perfectly into the composition! Great work!

There are so many people who need an art book. Sigh. I want a library loaded with them. There's about 20 or so I can think of off-hand.I need to kidnap a book publisher so I can finally get them.

Seeing this cover and some of the other covers that come out from DC, Marvel, etc...I wish they'd publish an annual "Best Of" covers book. A lot of these works deserve to be presented in a nice hardcover format to display them.

I like this one a lot, reminds me a lot of some of the cartoons from the 50s and 60s that had a bit of a "trippy" look to them.

The best compliment I can think of is that it looks like it was done 100% NOT in photoshop.
If you hadn't said anything I'd assume it was a multi-media,pen and ink, acrylic, colored pencil extravaganza.

I love this more than anyone else does. :)

I love how you are always able to get such an organic feel while using Photoshop.

This is the technique of that artist you showed me in San Diego? This looks awesome. Nice assimilation.

Sort of, but to be honest, every time I try to rip someone off I totally fail. It always ends up being more of a mix of everything I've learned.

Yeah, you're too good of an artist to allow yourself to swipe someone else. You totally made it your own.

I really like the shapes and lines the sun makes, as well the grass. The lighting on the Unknown Soldier is great too. I assume you just free-handed the typography?
