gunslinger colored by leinilyu gunslinger colored by leinilyu
Here is the gunslinger cover colored by Dave McCaig:)
just thought you wanna see it first before the ads and without the text.




edit/update:

this is really how I want my colors done.... all the lines are intact and visible despite the dark mood. I just hope it prints as good as it looks here:)

I also love Dave's hard edge rendering... a bit similar to anime/cellshade to me and I really like how it matches my style:)

Love it! One tough Hombre!
Before there was superman, batman, etc.
There was the western. I love the way you drew it and the color is great.
I loved the black and white/ inked version just as much as the colorization of your western piece. You are uniquely gifted. Impressed.

Neat shading, though seems a bit underdone on the hat.

Dear god this is fucking INCREDIBLE.
The Dark Tower is by far the best book series Ive ever read.
And you shouldve been the artist for the Gunslinger born.

I think I actually liked it better just in inks, but this is still really good looking. And, quite honestly, I like this far more than Jae Lee's actual work on the DT series. His images are beautiful, but there's no kineticism, no cracking energy or sense of movement. Your gunslinger really looks like he's about to send somebody on a premature trip to the clearing at the end of the path.

I really like this, the grittyness of it, and the effect it has because I am such a Western fan, and love the old Nameless Gun Slinger movies.

Sergio Leone style ;-)
