Frag! A Bonus Round!!

My cover of Simon Bisley's comic cover. Think I missed the point of this round, since I didn't change much from the original. Still fun though, and I have been out of the loop far too long.

Graphite + Photoshop

Armed 2 the teeth

The usual: Ball Point Pen, Coffee stain and a slight color adjustment in Photoshop to make the color pop.

Round Fourteen: Armed to the Teeth

Bill Sienkiewicz's Marvel cover for his and Frank Miller's "Elektra Assassin" No. 1 is one of a handful of iconic images I can say made me a cartoonist.

I first encountered it as a kid on a frosty summer morning on Telegraph in the window of Comics and Comix. A friend and I had skipped Strawberry Rec. Camp, and stared at it for hours before the shop opened, with sweaty palms accompanied only by local hobos.

When discussion of Round 14 came about, I couldn't shake the image. Then last night, inspired by the discussion, I came up with my twist.
