COD cover 4 colors by seangordonmurphy COD cover 4 colors by seangordonmurphy
Here's the cover for issue 4 of Hellblazer: City of Demon colored by Dave Stewart. Loving Stewart's stuff as always. Never thought purple would match this cover but I think he pulled it off really well.

And now I'm off to continuing to talk to Marvel/DC about new contracts. Until next time...

I swear I will try to ink like this. and I never try using brush before! I should be more confident with my drawing skill... May I ask? you done the ink manually accept the screen tone in PS right? I usually prefer black and white inked but the simple screentone and flat color are really a nice touch! Anyway I'm glad to find ur gallery and ur works really inspire me!

great work. Reminds me of the illustrations from the 60s in those children's books.

ok! are there going to be changes on the other ones too?

and i hate to say this because stewart is a master and all, but i love your HELLBLAZER stuff in b&w...

and the yellow buttons and zip from the jacket will stay like that? not grey like the belt and wallet chain?

Great angle and composition. Your inks look so good with Stewart's coloring. And why do girls always have to wear heels to the most awkward places?

Purple is a great colour for shadows if you are brave enough to use it.

I really liked the colors on this one. He is staying away from very dark colors, witch is a good thing, I noticed on those first 2 hellblazers issues that when a very dark color is used, it gets harder to see your brushwork (I'm one of the guys that would like to see this all printed on B&W). I'll bet these colors will look even better printed.

I like how you're pulling some of your best panels/pages from the interior and making them into covers. It really lets you know what to expect once you open it up (unlike some comic books).

Haha yeah I'm trying. A lot of covers are stock covers these days so you don't get as much of the "preview" of the story from the cover anymore.

I think its the tone of purple he used, it makes the yellow really pop! I also like the watercolor effect he has here as well. As always I love your edgy angular style, which really contributes to the 'action' feel of this. Beautiful colab piece!

this is really good and stuff, the violet really makes his shirt/hair stand out, but I couldn't help noticing that the girl's left hand kinda looks backwards.

1. I vote Marvel, beause they havecretor-owned clauses in their contracts. :D

2. The colors on this are awesome. I love how everything is subdued except his shirt and hair. Makes him really pop out at you.

Stewart is the best in the business.
