This cover was a lot of fun to do but kind of bittersweet as a big name Cover artist was attached to it. (No not Declan Shalvey, id never let that hack near my stuff)
In the process of colouring it now and by god am I crap at it. Trying some funky techniques like crayons and fingerpaint but its just not working.
Heres the initial sketch that I started messing around with. Totally wasn't in the scanning mood last night but I took a quick snap
Here it is inked and I was messing around with the logo placement. I made a few small changes, especially with the Bushido
Next up is most of the flatting. A bit of trusty two tone shading, and some pink back lighting. The only thing close to being finished right now is the Night Ghosts coat
And Bam, the pic is pretty much finished

Heres something I'm messing around with at the moment. Going to try and overlay colours onto it us touch it up in photoshop and painter to give it that old illustration feel. I've no idea whether it will work or not.
By the way, if any of you haven't done it already, click on Rich Carries link on the right hand side of the page and have a look at the awesome sculpture he's in the middle of creating. It has completely blown me away
