Here's another piece of art I unearthed this past week.  My friend, Liverpool artist Bill Naylor, painted this DAN DARE cover in 1998. It was commissioned and used to front a small print-run fan story. I think it was called, 'The Androids of Thanos', or something?

I was thinking Gorn too, but the size is off.  It's huge compared to the Predator head. 

Thank for the help though, I am still trying. 

Goofy top middle.  You're welcome

Stunning God Country page, absolutely stunning. Great pick up man. I came to that book way too late to ever get art but at a time were I really needed to read it in my life. Congrats.

Added a couple of pieces that fit the trophy wall theme.


One was through heritage auctions, and the other was a commission piece. 

First is Richard Pace's "Harvey Dent's & Two Face's Trophy Room" I did a nice write up of how Richard and I arrived at the composition for the piece and the various thematic elements.

The other was from a Heritage Auction, but fit nicely into the theme.

Giorgio Comolo's "Space Game Hunter". 

http://www.comicartfans.com/gallerypiece.asp?piece=1449542

I've identified most of the trophies in this piece, if you can spot the ones I missed please include information in the comments, I'd appreciate the help as some of these are on the tip of my tongue but I can't place them. That's the danger of picking up a trophy room that I didn't have a hand in creating. lol

These are beautiful. The Harvey Two-Face Trophy Room has such an incredible design. The Space Hunter is just wow. Both are perfectly executed. Thank you for sharing.

I find it unbelievable that no one on this board has commented on this Ditko Spider-Man page. It is a beautiful page with Spidey in action in every panel. What does it take to impress the board members?

My wonderful wife, Kathy, bought me a simple spectacular 35th wedding anniversary present. It took a while to create, but Yale Stewart of the JL8 webcomic nailed it.
 
This piece is a JL8-style version of the Silver Age Legion of Super-Heroes, my favorite comic team. If you click the link and read the description, you'll learn who is who and what's going on.

Just bought a nice Conan the Barbarian page by John Buscema and Ernie Chan - written by Roy Thomas, letters drawn by Joe Rosen:

http://www.comicartfans.com/gallerypiece.asp?piece=1451423

Guess nostalgia is to blame for this purchase - the page is from the very first Conan book I read :cloud9: - I probably was about 10 years old back then hm

I just bought my first piece of straight pencil work (off the Comic Link auction) for all of $215, including shipping, taxes and commission. The moodiness is wonderful.

I'm thinking of a little project to go with it. While I would never want an inker to touch the original, particularly since Clark is dead, I was thinking of finding an inker who could ink a blue line of it. Then, get some fake decals and place them on the blue line for a "what could have been." 

What makes me curious, however, is what would an inker do to this? The grey shading variations which can be achieved with a pencil stand out here. Ink isn't "shade friendly", and I'm not sure that the essence of the piece can be preserved by an inker.

Jeff Huet comes to mind. Ask him or another inker to make it his own rather than just going over the original lines. Have them lightbox it from a scan you send. You don't want all that blue all over it that will show through after.

Maybe Jeff de los Santos or Mike Perkins too.

Chew got me back into reading comics after over a decade, and looking up Rob Guillory's web page introduced me to OA for the first time.  Feels good to be able to get this page from him.

Spoiler

 

I didn't even think to check and see if that page was available! Great get and in many ways the perfect ending to the series. I hope people keep reading it over the years.

Thanks!  I actually hit Rob up the day it was published, and he finally agreed to sell it.

Wow, four new art postings in one week. That's a record for me, I think

Anthro by Howie Post - 
This was one of my favorite books for 6 months and then it was cancelled. Happy to find a page. Sad that I didn't realize Howie was still alive when I started buying commissions. 1f641.png:(

Kitty Ravencraft by Dan Parent - 
Dan and Ferando Ruiz are best known for their work with Archie comics characters, but they've also created their own, Kitty Ravencraft. The items on this link are perks from the Kickstarter.

2017 Christmas Card (but we are always late so it’s really our 2018 NY card) by Dan Parent - 
Pretty self-explanatory.

Hi guys,

This one is on the way;

DETECTIVE COMICS #678 page 3, illustrated by Graham Nolan and Bob McLeod.

This issue predated FLASHPOINT by 11 years and dealt with a very similar high concept:

Picked up about 30 of these strips today in a cash/trade deal. Not personally familiar with the strip, but I thought they were cool. I suspect it is either old and short-lived, or perhaps only briefly/barely got off the ground? Here's a few of them; many have great stuff on the backs too. Some aren't fully inked, so it's nice to see the raw pencil work.

Another great page by Fernando Ruiz & Rich Koslowski with Sharry the Spygirl in very innovative layouts from "The Man From R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E." story arc, Archie #613, page 8. Jughead mixes it up in the lab:

I was waiting to see some pages from the last issue!  Fantastic get...super jealous.  There wasn’t nearly enough talk on the boards about the last few issues.  It was a great ending!  I cheered out loud when I saw this page.
