Soulfire #4 by SquirrelShaver Soulfire #4 by SquirrelShaver
Finished pencils for Soulfire #4 cover.

This is a four piece cover I started for Soulfire #4 with Aspen Comics in September 2012 and just finished last week (February 2013). This thing is HUGE--like Gigantor huge. haha. All put together it's 22 inches wide x 34 inches tall (56 cm x 86 cm) and barely fit on my desk. It's even too large for me to store anywhere do I had to break it down to keep it safe.

As a whole I'm mostly satisfied with how it turned out. After scanning it all in and digitally piecing it together I see a few compositional flaws, but they might not be as apparent in the finished cover for production. It was a lot of fun tackling something so different from my norm. This image really pushed me to step outside my comfort zone and explore things that I honestly haven't touched on in a long time. It felt so good to stretch the 'ol creative muscles for a change. :)

All I could think when I saw this was, "Holy crap!" because there's so much going on that I don't know how you still managed your incredible amount of details. Easily one of my favorites!

Pencils like this should be  untouched by any other media.

Love the pencil more than the colours, I think it has more presence
