Big Trouble in Little China #7 Incentive Cover

By valstaples
Those who know me know I'm a HUGE Big Trouble in Little China fan. So I was thrilled to color a cover for BOOM! Studios comic.

The cover was a bit of an open canvas so I was juggling between leaving it open so there was a focus purely on the characters and lanterns, or adding something to the background that hopefully meshed. Ultimately, I watched Big Trouble (for the umpteenth time) on Netflix, and froze it during part of the famous alleyway scene. Then I loosely painted in the alleyway when the Three Storms were walking down it towards the camera.

Colors by yours truly!

I LOVE this movie. it is my all time favirote!

and the three storms are at the top of my favirote evil minions list.

I especially enjoy the light and shade coming off the hats from the lanterns above.  Very well done!
