Green Lantern cover by Devilpig Green Lantern cover by Devilpig
Got a phone call from DC comics and asked if I could do a rush job on a cover. I was about to say no because of my schedule but then the cover was described, "A GL ring with blood on it." That's it. Well, far be it from me to turn down an easy gig. Of course then it occurred to me that sometimes the simpler the cover the more it's a pain in the ass to do something cool and interesting. Luckily, this wasn't the case with this cover.
Here's the link to the actual book.

Green Lantern cover by *Devilpig is a simple, striking and effective cover that tells a lot without showing too much and leaves you wanting to read more. ( Featured by kangel )

Found this on a random google search.

Spent 2 hours backtracking it to this page.

Instantly faved it. I linked it to my DC roleplay forum. It has now been faved by them as well. I promised them all I would hunt down the maker of this picture and stalk them until they revealed their secrets for making such holy-crap-incredible blood spatters. Because this picture is BOSS. The dramatic lighting, the blood holy crap.... it's amazing. There's SUCH an incredible story here and I don't even care what the real story is, this picture says enough for me! I LOVE IT. It's PERFECT in all the ways that art should be. I bow to you, a master of your craft.

P.S. I'm also stalking you for blood spatter secrets.

You did a great job creating interest with an "easy gig". My six year old is a huge green lantern fan (pre-movie) and he FREAKED when he saw this.

You would say no to DC? Holy crap.

I think the cover turned out great, though--I especially love the way the shadow stretches and consumes the corner.

Absolutely Love it. Just got to watch the movie last night too and was pleasantly surprised as I thought it would be cheesier than it was due to the amount of CGI they used, but instead I found myself falling in love with this heroes tale all over again. Very nice cover, that speaks volumes about GL. The bloody fingerprint is the best!
