Voodoo by AdamHughes Voodoo by AdamHughes
A Voodoo cover I did for Wildstorm back in the 90s. One of the last painted covers I did before going to digital colors.

It's probably 15" X 25", water-based mixed media on illustration board.

It was a rush job; Wildstorm called me up on a Friday and needed it on a Monday, so I did this one in a 48-hour marathon I think, no sleep whatsoever. I hate those.

The original cover artist disappeared, so I was asked to do the covers for issues 2-4. He had started the miniseries with an Art Nouveau design for the first issue cover, which is probably why WS called me to help out. The fact that Voodoo is a superhero who is a stripper (I know, CLASSY!) in her alter ego hours probably had nothing to do with it, right?

Even though it was a nightmare, I really enjoyed this piece, and is one of the rare occasions where I had a lot of fun on a job.

The perspective is believable. I'm really digging the way the armpits and breasts came out, you got the valleys just right. Wonderful job! :)

This was rushed!!!?? Jesus friggin Christ, man! Does not seem like it at all! One of my favorites but only because of the fact that you use watercolors for this one. We need more art like this. Its more alive. Alot more than that Alex Ross' watercolor stuff.
