When I saw this contest, I flipped my wig. Draw Top Cow characters? Yes please. To possibly be included in an actual issue of the Darkness? Check. To be judged by Marc Silvestri himself? Sweeeet. I had so much fun drawing this one, but the wording of the rules was nebulous. Just to be safe, it is fully lettered... though obviously the lettering is on a layer to be stripped away with the quickness if need be. And I drew a in-between version of the comic book, and the video game Jackie... I gave him the demon arms and one darkling and that's all.

Marc Silvestri was a huge influence on me growing up, and so was Dale Keown, who I think is one of the great unsung talents of the comic industry. Mr. Keown still does occasional work for Top Cow, and it's always amazing.

I always lamented being far too young to send off work to the talent searches in the 90's like the Homage/Wildstorm and the Extreme Studios ones. This is the closest thing I've seen in my adulthood, and I want to thank DeviantArt and Mr. Silvestri for putting it together.

fix the mistake ...

"There is some nice stuff going on here but I’m not a fan of triangle shaped panels as they always feel like everything is being forced/crammed into that space. The reader is following a story and shouldn’t be distracted by the shape of a panel. I like the spatial separation between Jackie and the Brotherhood goons in panel #1 as it sets up the rest of the action nicely. The Darkling in panel #2 is a bit too dark (pun intended) and its hard to see what he’s doing. The artist takes a risk in the last panel with the angle but for the most part it works. The only issues I have with it are Jackie’s leg being out of proportion to the angle of the shot and the “in perspective” Aaiieee. Because the SFX is in perspective and dead center it’s the first thing you see in the panel. That’s a no-no but easily fixed. I like this page a lot." -Mark Silvestri

It's my honour and luck to have comment by Marc Silvestri.Thanks alot!
