Jackrabbit Cover Design: Costumes

I’ve done a couple of covers for Friend of HeroMachine and author Ian Thomas Healy. The next book up in his “Just Cause” series is a more humorous super-hero story titled “Jackrabbit”. We thought it might be fun to include you all in the cover design process, so over the next couple of weeks I’ll be making posts here about how it’s going.

Work in Progress

I’m working on a custom commission for someone and thought you might be interested in the approved black and white sketch. The client prefers to retain privacy so I can’t share any details about the characters but this is what they look like!

"Phantom Howler" by RobM

"Kronos" by Legatus

I’ve decided to try and post one cool character creation a day pulled from the forums. As usual with me, this will be fairly random. I just thought it would be fun to get a peek into what some other folks are doing.

First up is “Kronos” by Legatus. I like the way the large, muscular torso has been incorporated into the more regular body and clothing styles for a nice brick-style build. You can see all of Legatus’ creations here in the forums.

META: Still tweaking

I just wanted to give you a heads-up that I’m still tweaking things on the backend trying to make the blog faster and more fully-featured. One of the main things is trying to get blog posts by me and the other authors (Kaldath, dblade, etc.) to automatically post to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. That’s the reason I’m putting up so many old images.

Speaking of which, here’s another one, also rejected (partially) by the client!

Big Monster

I drew this for one of our Champions campaigns back in 2004. I’ll try to dig up the Flash version so I can get the city block in the program if possible.

Motorcycle Soldier

Truth be told, I’m trying to get the “publish to Facebook” plugin working, so as a result you get … MORE old drawings! This one’s from 2005.

Digital Hero Cover

Continuing the “Romp Through Jeff’s Hard Drive”, here’s a cover I did for an issue of “Digital Hero” back in 2002. Yes, people were alive back then.
