Happy Monday folks!

This weekend, the fine folks at Gallant Knight Games unveilved yet another collaboration between myself and them for the upcoming RPG "Fallen Justice" :)

This game, as you can surely appreciate from this cover, is about street-level vigilantism and as opposed to the recent "Tiny Supers" in their bright colors and 'justice for all' attitude heroes, inside the pages of this book we'll find folks more akin to Daredevil, The Punisher and even Sin City. Thus, it was very important for us to use a drastically different approach to the whole rendering of the artwork and that's why we chose to do it in pure black and white with a touch of red, for added effect. So, channelling my inner Mignola and Frank Miller, I have been intensely enjoying this set of images and particularly this cover. Its composition, placement of the characters and splashes of color all make it one of my favorite pieces in recent times. And of course, the design of the vigilante himself is one I'd like to revisit at some point :nod:

As usual, I'll keep you informed of any news regarding this new project and thank you all for your constant support! :)

See you soon.

Nic.-

Gangster Gator  By the look of things this fellow goes back even further than The 'Devil - he seems to be channeling Pure Pulp (and NOT Doc Savage, to say the least).

Indeed! Pulp is where this whole vigilantism thing originated, in a way, so I'm nothing if not respectful to the archetypes :nod:

 Very true - modern fictions owes more than a little to those old Mystery Men and their creators!

This is one of your best pieces.
And I'm not saying that just because I'm fan of all things noirish :D

I just realized that in all those years of following your work, it might be the first I've actually left a comment :D
(I found out your work by looking for W40K fanarts a few years back haha)
