Just got a pic of a finished commission3318

So I recently commissioned an artist to paint the front cover of the Daredevil Authentix edition, which has art by Joe Quesada:



For reference, here's how the original cover was painted



And I just got this from the artist!



I absolutely love the shift from a flatter daytime scene to a dramatic night-time scene where the city lights almost look like the city's on fire.

The artist did work with watercolor so it looks like there was some warping; I'm hoping a press might help with that a little.

The plan going forward is to get Joe Quesada, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Kevin Smith to sign it before getting the back cover painted, and finally a press and a slab.

Never thought about doing that. Good idea!

Thanks! I did it once before last year and I liked the result so much that I bought the whole line of Authentix covers to eventually do the same with.

@Grayspeedster Thanks! I love the Authentix covers since they print inked or penciled art by great artists on a paperstock more akin to a blank sketch cover than your run of the mill b&w cover so you have an opportunity to find other artists to finish the art and make something unique.

@Jaydknight Thanks! I'm excited to show the book to Joe Quesada at SDCC. I'm hoping he has a similar reaction

I wasn't sure - I was confused who inked it and then colored it, etc.
