Client: DC Comics
Media: PITT Pen on Strathmore Drawing paper, then colored with Adobe Photoshop CS2.

My first completed assignment of 2011! Zatanna is fun to draw, I tell ya. I'll post the rest of her in a little while; I just like how cropping it looks.

It's a pretty simple cover, nothing fancy this time around. It started life as an inventory cover, and was quickly called into action when a cover was needed!

Looking forward to doing some more complicated covers with this gal.

Wonderful inking there; the way the light switches from below to above when we get up to the hat really makes it work somehow. : o

The lighting on this piece is incredible! You could crop it as a portrait encompassing nothing more than the area from her hat down to her boutonniere and it'd still work.

It reminds me of one of the reasons why I love your work. You seem to execute all of your ideas with 100% commitment. It's the best way that this idea could possibly be done, every time.

Love that dramatic under-lighting; it really gives this piece an "on-stage" feel.

This would look great as a wallpaper. Any chance for a higher res pic?

Absolutely gorgeous. Is that a scanned texture warped over her corset?

I know you mostly do covers, but are there any Zatanna interiors in the works? (That would be RAD)

It's a scanned texture, but it's one I drew. I drew out a Damask Rose brocade pattern on a separate piece of paper, and then scanned it to use as a mask.

Is it just me or does this not remind you of Janet Jackson a little?

Love it, as always!! :D
