First, that wasn't a commission... second it's not even half complete.  That was about 4 hours in on an 8+ hour series of streams.

 

Notice the a few things on the actual finished image (IG cropped anyway)...

  • The second leg is actually finished.
  • The background is actually there.
  • The dragon has teeth/gums.
  • It's raining.
  • The overall values have been balanced.
  • etc.

If you watch Jim Lee draw... he starts with abstracts, blobs, outlines.  Then he tightens it up, corrects values and then adds highlights.  Then re-touches everything.  It's not a Jim Lee piece until he's done with it.

Great looking piece, and I agree regarding how much more complete it is now, but it's a moot point given that it was originally posted as a Lake Como commission example, and it's not a commission at all, right?

Nope, it was done for the convention (as in, the event, not a participant). A number of artists are submitting an illustration for a convention book. Capullo posted a nice Batman as well.

All good. But somebody show us what $15k gets you. That's what I want to see. Or did nobody bite?

The convention is this weekend, so it would be great to see photos of the show layout and a review from attendees.

I didn't see this event until a month prior.  I sincerely hope this is done next year.

Jim posted this on IG. Albert Moy commented this was a commission for the show. I’m guessing it’s a 6k piece.

To my knowledge there is no 6k option. There’s a 7k bust. The only option that falls in line with this is the 15k full figure. 

Con location looks amazing. Capullo posted some videos and the view is breathtaking.

I'd never buy a Jim Lee without Scott William's inks. Jim isn't that good of an inker and he knows that.

Is the room population being controlled or is the turnout actually that thin?

From people I have spoken to, the attendance is light but every artist has a line. With the limited number of tickets sold, this isnt a surprise.

All are sketching nice pieces but their lists are full obviously. Great show for people with deep pockets.

Re: Jim Lee prices, based on what Albert Moy posted, there was a 9x12 full figure with simple background option for $6k.
