Alien # 2

This alien is one of many that attended the parliament of creation from "The Heart Of The Star" in Endless Nights.

I love this story so much, it's always a joy when Scott decides to work on a character from that story!!!

Todd Faber

I thought I'd take a break from sharing scary demons with you and instead post a freakin' awesome painting of Todd Faber.

Scott showed me a rough sketch of this awhile ago, but he wasn't pleased with it. I saw a hint of where I thought he was going with the drawing and, of course, loved it and told him so. Thankfully he listened to me and stuck to his original sketch idea because it's perfect!!!

Todd appears in Fear Of Falling, which is a short 8 page story that appeared in the Vertigo Preview (and was later collected in The Kindly Ones).

Scott did an amazing job with this character. There are several subtle little things about the painting that work perfectly for the character in relation to his story. If anyone cares to point them out, please feel free to post them in the comment section.

So, here's Todd...from the original pencil sketch (that Scott didn't like), to inks, to the final watercolor.
