Awesome! How many of these 'painterized' Silver Age covers have you done? More to come, I sincerely hope?

Amazing job man!

(The original piece was inked by Joe Sinnott, wasn't it?)

Glad you liked it, what with your love of the BIG B that means a lot. I went back and looked at the original books and you are correct as to Sinnott inking the cover for the first issue.

Just Got it and with it starts my Masterworks collection...Just a note..not so a critic but ..Why did you go on a more squarish approach than the original of Big John?Again I Love the painting work and the atmosphere you brought to the piece but I also really like the grace Buscema brought to the Surfer...
Keep the beautiful Work!

P.S. : You can tell to Marvel that people buying those collections because of your covers... indeed the interiors are poor and far from the original colors (it's like a child colored it without any understanding of Shadow and Lights - a poor Art/Color Reconstruction I must said)

Thanks Man I will tell Marvel, if you ever get a chance yell it to them as well. They believe it more coming from someone other than me. But damn good for me to know

Good question. I think it started with me connecting the middle line from his chest to his groin and the revelation to me how much more active that made the figure. The chest and rib cage are turning to our right while the pelvis is turning to our left. John did not connect it all the way through so it always look a tad straight to me and I was shocked when I was painting it and connecting it how much more life it added to the painting.
Side note.
I am always uncomfortable doing these but once you start you have to commit to it and things will really change when you start adding volume to it. Changing a flat drawing that lives off of its shapes and colors to a painting that lives off of it volume and depth. Which is what Marvel wants on these. So you have to be ready to adapt at times and still keep it as exact as you can.

So back to my surprise at the change when connecting the rib cage and pelvic area. I think it was a lot stronger for it but it meant going in and tweaking a bit more and I think in the rush of the deadline and trying to give it the metallic look I went a tad more blocky with it. The arm to our right suffers the most for this. I think if I had to do it over again I would soften it more to keep it more like the ink art. Hope that was not to long of an answer. Thanks again and all the best
