Crisis On Parallel Earths Commission
It’s a Crisis!
Most of the commissions I get are homages to classic covers with a twist. This one was no exception.
Modeled after the classic X-men cover this one features my son’s favorite character “The Flash” and Green Arrow.
It is strange that I tend to get commissioned to draw quite a few DC characters. I don’t get Marvel commissions that often. Regardless this one was tons of fun. Trying to figure out which characters would appear on the posters was also quite a thrill.
One area where I struggled initially was how to pull off the texture on the page. I wanted the spotlight without going full black.
I decided to go with a splatter effect using ink on a toothbrush. I masked off the areas that I wanted to remain white and did the effect, all the while crossing my fingers and hoping I didn’t screw anything up. Luckily it really made the whole page pop.
