Cover for FutureQuake Press

The nice folks at FutureQuake Press asked me to provide a cover for their forthcoming issue of FutureQuake, an anthology comic telling tales of all things sci-fi.

This was a riff on Jack Vettriano's 'Mad Dogs' painting, which I thought might be a fun way of subtly introducing a character from the story I drew called Package Holiday, written by Andi Ewington, that appears in this issue.

Adapted pencil drawing of the original, then painted in Photoshop. I had a moment of clarity with the rings around the planet, realising it could be done with a series of radial gradient sweeps then set in a single layer, and distorted to match the angle required. Which almost certainly saved hours of anguish...




















And with the final title & pricing.
