In a few short weeks Futurequake 15 goes on sale in the U.K. For all the juicy details keep watching the FQ blog and/or the main sight here.
I'm quite happy with it, and I hope folks enjoy it. It was written by Greg Dunford, and greyscalled/colored by Keiren Smith. Please keep a sharp eye out for it.
Since there's a neat 'making of' this cover posted over at the the Futurequake Blog, I'm finally able to show the cover off here. I found it rather interesting that the cover I wound up drawing was NOT the one I would have picked myself! That's why I enjoy getting other artists opinions. Everyone (Including a few pros like Frank Quitely) told me to do the one you see below, rather than the homage to 'Death Dealer' by Frazetta that I was gonna whip up. Just goes to show you that Bolt-1 and the FQ folks have a sharp eye for cover design.

Curt Sibling , and artist who publishes TOTAL FEAR www.lulu.com/content/5533098 and has drawn stories over in Wasted with me, got in touch and asked me to do a pin-up drawing featuring two of his characters from Total Fear. He wanted a ‘Shard Vs. Roza’. Below are Curt’s illustrations of them along with his colors.
It’s a WEE BIT different stylistically than the way I draw. ;-) I was quite keen to draw it up for him, BUT in my style. Here’s what I came up with.
Pretty different, eh? I did keep them Curt Siblings nipples though! They really seemed to jump out at me from his art…ahem.
Curt was pretty happy with it, and colored it up. He did a great job, check out the image at the top of this post. Chalk it up to another blending of differeing styles that works out great!
