I just cannot get over how insanely fantastic and incredibly dynamic these covers are. :)  Do you have any recommendations on rendering cityscapes? Do you use phototextures or 3D modeling at all, or is it just by hand? I've been struggling with painting them, and I've been trying out different things, but I'd love to get your input! :)

Also, will you be at San Diego Comiccon this year?

Thanks so much! 

I personally hate drawing two things: cities and guns; just mind-numbingly dull. As for cityscapes, I try to avoid multi-point perspective as much as possible. This one was easy; just one vanishing point. Concerning 3D modeling, I use a really old program to model primitive shapes as placeholders for the buildings. Letting primitives do the perspective work speeds up things as deadlines are always hectic. I really do need to buy and learn some serious 3D programs like Zbrush and Modo but I just never have the time to learn them. Someday...

I plan on being at San Diego Con. I'll definitely make an announcement when we get closer :)

Firstly, thank you so much for always responding to my questions; I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! :) 

I've been trying to diversify my portfolio and get better at environments and cityscapes in particular, as I'm graduating from art school this fall. But I completely agree -- cityscapes are incredibly boring to paint, which is why I love the way you paint yours -- they're anything but boring to look at; they're so dynamic.

Do you find you use one-point perspective in most your pieces? Unfortunately they don't teach perspective very well at my school, so I've been struggling with it, three-point perspective in particular.

It's my first time going to SDCC, so I'm beyond thrilled. :) I'm hoping to get a portfolio review while I'm there, if possible. I do hope I get to meet you!

I don't always use one-point perspective but I do try to keep it as simple as I can unless it's critical to the art. Even using basic 3D modeling aids, It's still vital to understand the fundamentals of perspective. You sometimes need to cheat for exaggeration and knowing the rules is key to getting away with it.

Hope to meet you at SDCC! Be prepared. It's pretty crazy!

I still struggle with perspective, and movement with my figures, especially. Definitely going to work at it this summer and this last fall semester before I graduate. 

I've never been, so I'm both excited and a bit nervous!
