Jade by AdamHughes Jade by AdamHughes
Year: 2010
Client: DC Comics
Media: Pencil & PITT pen on Strathmore Drawing Paper, then colored in Adobe Photoshop CS2



This is a Jade cover done for DC Comics, which ultimately won't be published. It happens; that's life as a freelancer. But YOU get to see it! Whee!

DC wanted a very specific design - the character flying at the reader against a white background.

******UPDATE*******

Due to the overwhelming number of people responding with variations on "I can't believe DC rejected this", I have to clarify something.

DC Comics did not reject this art. The art was accepted and I was paid. After I handed in the cover, I was told it wasn't going to be used for its intended purpose, so it they're holding on to it for a future use.

Ah, Jade....

How often you are forgotten about in the minds of people
who say they are comic book fans.

Almost had the honor of owning this. Had an agreement in place with the seller, had made 3 of 5 payments for it, and then he yanked it off the table and said he was selling it to someone else unless I paid the rest of what I owed him, PLUS an extra $450. I told him he should honor our agreement; he told me to pound sand.

Beautiful work, sir, but unfortunately one associated with a bitter memory for me.
