A glance into my Swamp Thing 19 cover for DC comics.

This was really my first stab at the iconic character, besides one other portrait drawing.
So this also is my own concept design for Swamp Thing. DC was great & gave me creative freedom to do my own version of him.
Personally my favorite Swamp Thing is Bernie Wrightson's original version. I think he is a unique character, though, in that his visual appearance can change a bit.
I wanted to add more texturing elements and plant details than Wrightson's original, but not bury the human side too much. Especially for a first look at the character and new direction for the comic series.
This is a photo detail of the original pencil before I inked it.
My Swamp Thing #19 cover is due out in early April 2013!my Blog/ Website
