Inking Scarecrow + Swamp Thing 19 Signing

Swamp Thing #19 which features a gatefold cover I drew, comes out next week from DC Comics.
"Cup of Kryptonite" have invited me to do a signing at their store on Wednesday (April 3rd) for the release. I'll be there in the shop from 5:00-7:00 PM. Stop by if you are in the Des Moines, IA area;)

Drawing Scarecrow was one of my favorite parts of the cover art.
Here's some WIP photos from inking Scarecrow, plus one of Swamp Thing's arm, and the full Ink version of Swamp Thing #19 too.

Finally here's a photo detail of the original rough sketch for the Swamp Thing 19 cover.  I really liked the original sketch on this one.  This is where I figured out the composition & basic shapes.  Then the final was done on another paper.
