Luther Strode pinup

Well, Image just put up the press release, so I guess I can post this here now.

My friend :iconsobreiro: got a hold of me a little while ago to do a pinup for the back of a future issue of The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, which I was delighted to do. The first issue of the comic sold right out, and the team liked my picture enough to want to use it for the second printing's cover! Big thanks to Justin Jordan (I don't know where to link to!) and :icontradd: and Felipe.

Now go buy the comic and make them rich.

Black and brown ink plus grey gouache on Bristol, with a "multiply" layer of yellow on the computer to make the highlights pop.

my god that is just soooo badass, love how you made the blood stains on the shirt and just the concept of holding the "hercule's Formula" adds to a sense of depravation/acceptance of the Librarian's "way", i'm faving it XD

I saw this just before it hit the shelves. Amazing work! This cover really sticks with you. I thought about it for weeks!

Wonderful lines, where does he get those lines! excellence style as usual Laemeur, classic yet 'edgy' and 'current'. Whatever those overused words mean, I somehow know it probably applies here! Seems Image spotted that too.

Dude, I'm still blown away by how great this turned out! Thanks so much for doing this for us, I'm thrilled we could use it as a cover.

Here's the real question: would you rather me tell everyone that you're my brother or my father? Because obviously Alan, Tony, you, me, and all other comic industry Moore's are related.

Hahaha. Father, definitely! That'll maybe raise a few eyebrows at least.

Husband would have been a more interesting choice. ;)

This is an absolutely gorgeous image!
