just thought i'd share these covers i did for DCU a while back. hopefully it won't be the last ever covers i work on. but in saying that, i have to admit, these are probably the two worse pieces i've ever laid my hands on. completely different to how i imagined it would turn out.

i probably tried to be an artist i wasn't and tried to do something different that i had a poor understanding of. especially with the bottom cover, i did a poor man's rendition of art adams's feathering/cross hatching technique to try and emulate or dictate where the light source would be coming from. unfortunately it just wasn't my forte and should have left it to the colourist instead. hopefully DC will give me another chance to redeem myself in future.

These covers are to issues 7 and 11, respectively , of a 12 issue mini-series titled 'tangent superman's reign'. pencils and inks by me, colours by kanila tripp. Oh yea, I also did the 5 page backup stories from issues 7 to 11. so please check it out if you get the chance.

Your work couldn't be any cooler if it was a polar bears nut sack.

Seconded. Seriously man, there's self-criticism and then there's self-harm. :) You've got nothing to be ashamed of with either of these!

It's good to stretch the artistic muscles... I think you're on to something with that second image. Definitely something to keep trying.

And DC would be crazy not to give you more work. :)
