Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

Original Sin #0 hits shelves today! You can see a preview here. This was one of the rare occasions when my editor knew exactly what he wanted, and I was happy to oblige. I like those gigs every once in a while because they move so smoothly — I just start drawing.

While I didn't draw directly from the pic below, I was using this 3D model for drawing and lighting cues. The program is Sculptris, which is all about speed and ease of use. It's not a ray-tracing program, as evidenced by the patches of light on the shadow side, but it gets the job done if you know what to ignore... like the fact that he's not Uatu, The Watcher.

Hulk watch!

  1. Is the Hulk model you used for reference secretly a spoiler? haha

    1. Not that I know of... just the only sculpture I've done with nasolabial folds.
