Covers for Comics that don't exist


I wanted to do something like this for months. I was given the chance, including the little pressure I need to finish. It was an activity assignment on conceptart.org to make a cover for every title given. Sometimes the description was more detailed like with Frankenstein or John Cotton, other titles were totally free to interpret.

In order of making:


maybe the concept with the strongest impact, because rather photographic, but I'm not pleased with my execution...



Inspired by polynesian culture, which is not so known but overall amazing. I like my font (painted, like the face) with drybrush ink on watercolour paper).



Comics are not all serious. Amy's Doll in my imagination is a twinkle-toe light reading for all ages.



I had this idea about a woman in a box office very early while doing this challenge, but all my other composition ideas included to much environment, which is one of my weakest points...



this was the hardest for me. The story takes place in the Old West after the US civil war and I'm not exactly an expert in US history, as exciting as it might be - but I simply wasn't teached it like I was teached european history. Gosh, in my school life we covered the Weimarer Republik and WWII three times. But we didn't even get into post-war German/German history, so no-one can exspect we covered anything from oversees...
anyway, the John-guy on this cover is totally drawn free hand and I'm pretty satisfied with it. Looks like a black male to me, full of strength yet a bit at loss what to do with his new-won freedom. The slaves were freed but they weren't given the same rights as white people for several more decades...

I made a wrap cover, because it adds to the mood :-P

well, I seem to be the simple type with covers... that got nooooooothing to do with my skills, nooooooooo....

Look at what the others did in this conceptart thread. Thanks!
