    You should! I'd love to see it.

    It would awesome to get a whole thing going with this. Most of you guys blow me out of the water with your skills.

    My daughter wanted to paint on the weekend so I thought it would be fun to do an imaginary packaging art for the "lincoln victim" figure. Not entirely happy with it but I'll take another pass next weekend.



    As i started sketching, I realized I didn't come up with this on my own. I was copying something from memory. I started googling comic covers and sure enough, I was swiping the concept from Wrightson! Seeing that Lincoln swiped from Gray Morrow, it seemed fitting.

    Wow, you got pretty close considering it was just in your subconscious!

    Nerd factoid: Wrightson's model for that cover was Louise Jones. Then married to Jeffery Jones, and now married to Walt Simonson, and a fine comic editor and writer in her own right.

    Nice work!

    Great stuff Brian, I think you did a good job of capturing Mr Rock's look. I was wondering where your new avatar came from. And that's funny how you were subconciously copying that HoS cover. I've always loved that Wrightson cover. And really interesting fact Chris, I had no idea that Louise Simonson was the model for that.

    I haven't painted since high school, and when I was in my teens and early twenties I used to draw like a fiend but really haven't done so in quite awhile, and I feel bad about that. I really should change that, and getting your kids involved is a great idea.

    I had no idea she was either. It was deflating to realize that I didn't come up with the imagery on my own but then again, it's a really striking piece, so it's all good.
