The Art Behind The Evil

I thought it would be fun to share the vision of a couple of artists I had worked with on Evil Eternal, back in the day when I had dreams of starting it as a graphic comic. I haven’t given up that dream. Please feel free to petition your favorite comic publisher to make Evil Eternal come alive in the panels of a comic!

This first one of the character Father Michael was drawn by my close friend, Mike Chella. Dude looks badass. Unfortunately it comes out grainy here, but I loved the dark style that Mike brought to the project. The panels Mike drew are what inspired me to keep working on the story and escalating the madness!

Next is a slick, computer graphic version of our favorite undead priest by author and artist, Ron Leming. The crucifix trident is pretty freakin’ cool.

And speaking of comics, Saturday, May 5th is National Comic Book Day. If you’re a fan, please visit your comic book store and pick up a few issues of your fave. I also wrote an article, more an ode to comic books, to celebrate the day. Click here to take a gander.

    I love both pieces of art, but am partial to the drawing. I like the way it looks like a bunch of flies are gathering together to make the form. Makes me curious. Is the Father being created by some sort of darkness – or is he the white spaces between the darkness that is struggling to come to the foreground? I bet I’ll find out when I read EVIL ETERNAL!

      For some reason, the conversion made the drawing super grainy, but it added another layer of depth in the process! Oh, Father Michael is a lot more than meets the eye. You’ll see. 😉
