On the stands.
It may be interesting to note, that when I get assigned covers, I do both Robin and GLC back to back. When these two came along, I was told the basic Idea. Hero/s surrounded by bad guys/babies. So basically the same exact thing, content-wise.
So hopefully they don't come off looking too much like carbon copies. I guess Ill leave that up to you to judge. Here they are with Robin first:
Robin 160> Pete; "I want Robin fighting a bunch of super strong thugs."
Okay Thumbnail sketch #1 is lame. Ill give you that. But I still like the idea of the two guys smashing their faces into each other in a near miss.
#2...I like this one a lot. it would have been even better to get to show the stoic, steel resolve in Robin's face in the final version, but alas...
#3 I am glad I didn't have to do this one because I basically ripped it off from a Bruce Lee movie still. Plagiarism is bad.
#4 the final and the chosen. fun, kind of unconventional, but I get to show of Robins acrobatic style, plus it is always nice to draw thugs flying.
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #11> Pete; "....let's try Soranic and Iolande surrounded by babies with guns."
As far as GLC's thumbnail sketches, not much variation in content. Mostly posing. But you want to get it just right when posing women and killer babies. No room for error there. Great job by Moose and Christian here as well. you can almost smell the dirty diapers.
