And here is the final cover painting! After the final watercolurs were applied, as seen in the last post, I decided to paint over the drawing in the sky with gouache. My initial plan was to just add some highlights with gouache but I ended up over-painting a lot of it and I think for the better. The gouache phase of a painting is always amazing to me; the way all of the sudden these colours are popping and everything becomes so vibrant. It's an amazing medium. I prefer it over oil and acrylic, really.
Top Shelf is already using it for promotion and I've already seen the comic mentioned in the same paragraph as Alan Moore, which is a real thrill.
Thanks so much for following along. More soon on the Adventures of the Flying Boat.
