The Making of the New Harvey Birdman Video Game Cover!

Here are my sketches and thumbnails for the new Harvey Birdman Video game Cover... The premise, Film Noir! Court Room Drama! a Villain! all right up my alley as I'm a big film noir fan. The evolution goes through many ideas. I don't like to leave many of them in the ink well, so I just keep going until I feel like I've covered as many angles as I can with in the time alloted. The final was picked, a tighter rendering is done, then it was given to the very talented Brian McGee to paint the final, who did a absolute wonderful job! Thanks to my good friend Ed Murrieta at Cartoon Network for the assignment... Enjoy!

wow. any one of these would have been a great cover. Must say that while the final rendering is well done, your layouts capture the stark pulp feel even more effectively in my book at least.

Awesome thumbnail comps, here!!
You've really managed to capture the whole 'Film Noir' poster feel to these..

Recently bought the 'Space Ghost' dvd, too. And really appreciated your commentary, re: your relationship with Alex Toth.. That documentary was a GREAT extra!!
