HELLBOY AND THE B.P.R.D.: 1955 #3. 2017.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Out today: Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1955 #3, full credits here. Below are the many little details that went into making this cover. The figure on the lower left is the design I came up with for a character, Moravec, that made his first appearance in Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1953.

I usually do tiny sketches in the (often digital) margins to get a feel for characters, poses, or props. If nothing else, it helps me rule things out. I find it's always better to just get something on the page before you start overthinking it or, heaven forbid, erasing.

Not much posing, but lots of details
