Year: 2011
Client: DC Comics & SONY
Media: Media: Pencil, PITT Pen and COPIC marker on Strathmore Drawing paper, then colored with Adobe Photoshop CS2.

Here's my UNCHARTED cover, done for SONY as a giveaway poster at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, and then used as a variant cover for DC Comics' UNCHARTED comic last month. The Drake face is different than the poster version: I redid it because I didn't think I came close to the way Drake looks in the game. This is a little closer, but it usually takes me 5 to 7 attempts before I get close to a character.

I love the UNCHARTED games. This cover was designed as an homage to Drew Struzan's INDIANA JONES movie posters. Imagine my surprise when Drew himself was standing at my table at San Diego, saying hi and thumbing through my portfolio...

Just read some of the comments and I see I wasn't the only one to see Boreanaz in your depiction.  Also I'm curious why your signature is not present?   Mind, when I do an artwork, if it does not have my signature on it then I do not consider it finished.  Once I've signed it that is all she wrote, it is done.

So was meeting one of your hero's all you wanted it to be?     Also, I think the characters look a little like David Boreanaz and Sarah Michelle Gellar.   For some reason I see Nathan Drake aka Nathan Morgan as Nathan Fillion...  Oh yeah, its because he is Drake in this video…
Have you seen it?
Great work as always, but then have you ever not done anything perfect?

This is amazing. It looks like books I'd pick up as a kid and couldn't put them down. Your art is awe inspiring!
I love Indiana Jones styled books. You are so talented.

 This is an image that speaks volumes (and is rather excellent in it's own right), but what it's saying is:- 

Nate Drake: "Anything you can do, I can do better Doctor Jones!"

 The kid is good, but he ain't THAT good (not yet, anyway).

If there's going to be a 4th Uncharted, there is only one treasure I would like Nathan to go after... the Philosopher's Stone.
