Big Trouble in Little China #7 Incentive Cover by valstaples
Big Trouble in Little China #7 Incentive Cover
Those who know me know I'm a HUGE Big Trouble in Little China fan. So I was thrilled to color a cover for BOOM! Studios comic.

The cover was a bit of an open canvas so I was juggling between leaving it open so there was a focus purely on the characters and lanterns, or adding something to the background that hopefully meshed. Ultimately, I watched Big Trouble (for the umpteenth time) on Netflix, and froze it during part of the famous alleyway scene. Then I loosely painted in the alleyway when the Three Storms were walking down it towards the camera.

Hello. Thank you for watching. Cool gallery - was listening to an interview with Warren Ellis how a colorist can make or break a comic, great work. Liking very much the Ghost rider work - eye searing stuff.
