This is another example, with the GFT 24 cover pencilled by Al Rio, of a piece I find your colors perfecly adequate onto ! Real, real cool. Thanks for sharing !
Best,

only one of those amazing girl would be enough for me...so beautiful! anyway. the first girl and the golden one (don't know their name sorry:D ) have an amazing light; the moon is pure poetry but the skull in background could have been better...don't know why exactly...maybe you used a too wide brush...but i'm not telling it sucks, you are one of the best colorists ever for me.

painted covers take forever, but thats one thing. painted interiors for me in this style would take about 20 hours each, and i'd charge a helluva lot more than a company like zenescope could afford.

I like the skull in the back though I think you could have used some more hard edges on him since he looks a little soft

other than that great work as usual

i wanted him to fade more though, and not be as sharp as the rest of the characters, as a mode of separation.

good point
but I still would have liked him better with some more hard edges here and there =)

Im kinda new to this series, so whatever in the cover shows the stories right?
Sorry if im new but I kept seeing your books in comic book stores but then they are tightly wrapped so it put me ina position to not buy them because i don't know how the story works in stories that is not related to the cover!
