For reasons no-one can quite fathom, I'm working on a mock-up annual cover, based on Mike McMahon's classic 1985 2000AD cover. Keeping to the same layout, I've drawn Dredd, Rogue and a full figure sketch of Slaine, just need to compose it on the mac, add the old school logo and colour it all. Just doing it for a laugh really, and as a tribute to the great man. Sketches to follow...
Had a couple of ideas, so if I get me skates on I might enter twice this time.
The brief, as set by last month's winner (the mighty Gibson Quarter), is 'Justice Dept hardware in action', so my first piece showcases the Lawgiver MkII. IIn this one, Dredd wears his waterproof poncho, as seen in 'The Connection', drawn by Kev Walker. I love this look, and I'm going to try and combine it with some Sin City-style rain.
The second piece shows the legendary stub gun in action against a Sov tank, in a scene from the Apocalypse war.
These are my initial sketches.
