Angel: After the Fall 17 Cover by AlexGarner Angel: After the Fall 17 Cover by AlexGarner
This was a odd one as I wasn't used to collaborating. I painted the images as separate files and then IDW Publishing's Graphic Designer Robbie Robbins put them all together into a magazine layout with Angel writer Brian Lynch's text.

We were going for that cheesy, gossip-rag People/US magazine vibe, which was all Brian Lynch's idea from the beginning.

I'm glad you did this one because this is the cover I pre-ordered and bought, I just love Realism.

I didn't think about that. Damn. I guess I have to settle for using it as my screensaver. Or to hope that IDW will start making posters.

I love this one. It just might be my favorite After the fall cover.

Any chance you're selling the covers you've done?

Thanks! It's all digital, so sadly there's no original art to sell :(

I told my wife a few days back that this was the greatest Whedonverse comic cover ever. She loved it too :)

Amazing cover, as they all were. A great one to finish on, I've really been blown away by your work and am glad I was made aware of you talents by reading Angel.

Would be great to see the details from this cover - just your pieces of art, separately, sans layout.

Thanks! I'd show 'em separately, but honestly there isn't much to see except for space-filler on the edges so they could be cropped properly.

Love Angel's blurred-out foreground. And his squint-iness, really beautifully done!

This is sooo visually tame for a gossip rag, but you can definitely tell that that's the intention.

I laughed out loud at ‘The Illyria Diet’ — hilarious!

Brilliant... I recently did an homage to Daredevil #1 - because I wanted something that had that feel. The blurbs on the cover and what-not...

I can certainly say that not only are the graphics impressively detailed and very photo realistic, but the magazine layout is quite grasped too.
This makes a hell of a fun and skilled piece!

It went pretty quickly, about 2-3 days. I was initially concerned it would take a long time, especially with the Angel pic, but the silhouette solution cut that down substantially.
