Max Starwind

     Hey kiddies!  Been a little while, how are you?  No really, tell me all about it.  Okay, so I haven't gotten in touch with my chibi-infused roots in quite a while, so when presented the challenge to make a kid's style comic cover, I gladly returned to them.  Here's the resulting pencils.
     Woo!  Digitally colored version coming soon!

     So for this special installment of Joan Comics, I have a wraparound cover that I put a good deal of time and love into.  I have this idea for a modern day sword and sorcery comic that will hopefully become a fully fleshed out graphic novel.  A woman, alone in the city, struggling with alcoholism, finds out that she has one more problem she has to deal with; she's a witch.  While she is discovering the oddities of her mystical nature, she is being tracked by a crazed man who calls himself a witch hunter.  Sounds nuts, right?

     Well, here is the front cover.

     And the back cover.

     And this is what it looks like all put together.

     Oops!  The scanner cut a little bit off, but you get the picture.  HAHA GET IT, THE PICTURE? 8D

The Creeper, finished!

(Click image to enlarge.)

Here's the finished painting!  I was hoping to get one or two more process photos, but the nitty-gritty detail painting work is the best part.  It's easy to get sidetracked when you get to the fun.  But he looks ready to be a serial killer, old west style.
