Lazarus issue 19 by Greg Rucka and Michael Lark is out today! Part three of the POISON arc, bad turning to worse behind enemy lines with the Anvils. Not only is it a really excellent issue but it includes a preview of the upcoming Rucka/Scott Image series Black Magick. And it includes my covers for Lazarus 19 and 20. Whew.
Above are a bit of the process for the cover for 19. Early thumbnails for a more action heavy direction, then we got into specifics and the events of the battlefield. A few versions later we arrived at a slightly wider overhead shot with the snowy ground and fallen gear. The final illustration was drawn on Bristol board with brush and ink, refined and painted digitally. The original inks and other cover inks are available to buy at Splashpage Art.
