    I thought this idea would be more fun with the next generation.

    Incredibly original! The shadow adds drama as well as dimension.

    Thanks, guys.
    I’m satisfied with the overall design and posing, but the finished product feels a little flat to me. Any thoughts?

    I would suggest ‘deforming’ the wrist band, making it out of a cape or something. It doesn’t look like it’s helping hold the weight of a guy. Maybe dulling the background a bit would make the foreground stand out more?

    Thanks, Herr D. Sometimes I’m too close to the work to see some of these things. I didn’t intend to imply that the dangler was being supported by his wristband, but after you mentioned it, it was pretty obvious that’s what the illustration was saying. So, I changed the hands to suggest that he’s slipping through Midnight Arrow’s hands. I think it adds a layer of tension. Also, as you can see, I changed the background color and proportions. I think it adds some depth. What say you?

    RobM, awesome! And like you with “high five,” I hate using the word “awesome” but that is exactly what your work is! That last cover is great, both versions, but I think the black shadows made it more dramatic, though this version is more natural looking with the earth tones.

    Another excellent cover. I think I might just try to make one of my own soon.

    Rob, I wish I had half the talent you have for creating covers. I want to make a Dragonfly cover but I suck at that kind of thing.
    Anyway, all of yours are fantastic, keep it up.

    Here’s an idea to get you started.

    I’ve been thinking about this for awhile – Who’s Who style pages for the Sentinels universe. The drawings are HeroMachine; the typesetting and page layout were done in Adobe InDesign. I started with Lodestar Comics’ core character, Genesis. Here is his entry from the Lodestar Universe Compendium.

    This is a much reduced copy because the original was too large to upload. To read the text you can go here http://www.robertmckercher.com/CompendiumGenesis3.pdf
