I recently illustrated my first cover for DC, and in the doing checked something off my bucket list. I got to draw Swamp Thing professionally. As a kid I had a borderline unhealthy fixation with the Swamp Thing movie. I loved everything about it, a superhero/horror movie.. check, Credence intro.. check, Wes Craven.. check, Adrienne Barbeau.. CHECK! As I got older my love of the character only grew once I discovered he was created by Bernie Wrightson. When I was offered my pick of several different books to do a cover for, I immediately informed them of my ST love (and Justice League Dark in general) The AD informed me that JLD was one of the books available. I got very excited and started doing work, the process of which I have laid out below.
The original drawing, sans digital color will be available at IlluXCon next week. Graphite on bristol board 11 x 17.
