Issue #1 has completely sold out from the distributor, including the quite decent overprint, so in celebration, here's a look at #3's cover.
First off, some sketchy pencils. I leave the big stuff to the inks, which is a luxury someone who does both has really.
This'll be an image of Archie in his UFO craft thing, during a dog fight with all the special US military aircraft.
Lay in the basic lines and start on the crotchwork.
Blacked in the bits I needed to, now I start on the watercolour washes...
Lots more watercolour, with a bit of white pen and such at the end before it's ready to scan...
And after a few colour washes, some contrast adjustment and a little airbrush, Groom Lake #3 Cover A is born!
If you didn't know, Groom Lake #2 is still available, just ask your friendly retailer to use this code: MAR094324 to get one in for you. Otherwise it probably isn't going to magically appear on the store shelf for you. Issue #1 has already sold out so make sure you don't miss it!
Issue #3 just became available to order, so tell your retailer APR090874 is the code for the good stuff.
Cheers to everyone who bought and dug the hell out of #1! ( It apparently was quite a lot of you! )
Have just gotten word that a rather famous chap is going to be doing the intro for the eventual collection too.
