So… has anyone thought about who should do the cover and what should be on it?

I don't think there's any way we can avoid a group shot, so either everyone does a nice pin-up of his own hero and we paste them together (of course we should all work from the same sketch or thumbnail for this to work), or someone draws the entire group… maybe we can split things like drawing and coloring, logo design etc. …or we do alternate covers by different artists.

I don't know… any suggestions?

As this is one comic there will be only one cover. I think that the cover should be drawn by one of us and contain a group shot of the team.

My suggestion is that we all vote who we would like from the group to do the cover, you cannot vote for yourself. If you would like an element of surprise to the vote, you can PQ me your choices and I will let you know who gets it.

how about that?

The voting has started, Abt_Nihil has cast his vote, obviously I have also cast my vote so Spudsy, Literacysuks1 and Monkeymafia to go…

In addition, I was thinking of including a kind of Rollcall sheet with a picture of the heroes and a brief description of the abilities.

I think everyone should supply both their own image and text. Obviously if you hate this idea and wish to exclude it just let me know.

how's this for a quick result!

We have a cover artist…Literacysuks1 is still to vote but it makes no difference now (sorry).

Monkeymafia will be doing the cover.

Wow… thanks guys! Really didn't expect that, I'm not the best artist here. I'll start work on it as soon as we have it planned. What do we all want involved in the cover? A group shot? Should we include Deuce?

I'm really happy to do this, I'm gunna whip out the sketch pad tomorrow as soon as I've done my next Hellfire page.

I've got the page sketched out now. (Thanks Spudsy and Abt_Nihil for the designs). I'll ink it tonight; the fastest part of the process. I finish college early tomorrow and I can probably colour it all then.

What are we doing for the logo? Classy, cartoony, comicy? etc.

That's cool. Feel free to do any logo you like, but failing that i will just use the one from the site page itself if you want.

Once you have done the page, PQ me a link.

Cheers

I know I keep putting this thing off, but I can assure you all, it is getting done. All the characters are coloured, I just need to start work on the background, so I'm probably about 2/3 to 3/4 through it. I've had a pile of work put on this week. Sorry guys.

At least I'm happy with it so far, which is a rare thing.

Given your usual high standards I'm not concerned at all.

Thanks Abt.

Finally! If I got any designs wrong or you can make any suggestions, please don't hold back. I won't be offended at all. Nepath is in charge of the lettering, I left a few spaces for potential text. My initial idea was to have the main title across the bottom, and our names in a list the top right. But I'm rubbish at that sort of thing so I'm probably talking nonsense.

Great work, very dynamic. I adore your coloring and backgrounds.

If there's any suggestion I could provide, it's that I'd rather put the title at the top and our names at the bottom right. The characters are all in the left part of the image, so we should put a counter weight to that in the bottom right.
