WARRIORS OF MARS N0.2 by JoeJusko WARRIORS OF MARS N0.2 by JoeJusko
Cover to the second issue of the Dynamite Entertainment Barsoom series starring John Carter and Gullivar Jones.

Busy composition that could have used another day to adjust the value control but I ran out of time. :-(

Great control of the composition none the less. However there is one thing:

purple crotch....or "John Carter: Feel the wrath of my tea bag, Villain!"

Jokes aside, I love how action oriented this is. the Dynamism of John is
great as he is poised to enact some epic "foot to ass" on the Martian and
how his buddy, who is being blocked by John Carter is dumbfounded and
afraid all at the same time.

Just how jazzed are you about the upcoming movie?

I actually like the colors, they're very vibrant and eye catching :) I love the poses, they really give you an idea of what each character's personality is like.

Also this looks like it could be the movie poster to the best "buddy cop" film ever

Always an important part of illustration. Getting character and attitude that match your subjects personalities gives the piece so much more depth and interest.

I agree. It's always jarring when someone draws a character's body language opposite of what it should be unless they are going for a comedic effect. :)

That's hilarious that they have included Gullivar Jones into the John Carter world, since Gullivar actually came before Carter. It is a logical melding and should make for an interesting story! Great job on the cover, Joe!

The red martian rock formations are awesome. John Carter is REALLY bringing the battle to 'em; love how you've done that! The energy and action is just terrific Joe!

John Carter's underwear seems to be the only odd color in this image. Not to say anything wrong with it but it's quite a contrast in my opinion. :P

Does your eye gravitate to John Carter in the busy composition because of the color? If so, mission accomplished. :-)

Not only that, John's anatomy stands out too. The way the light reflects on his muscles and six pack is amazing. Makes John stands out in this busy environment. Big thumbs up on that!

Joe is a master of showing how light hits an object, or in this case a six pack!

Thanks! I should have darkened the sole of his boot to bring it forward a bit more and keep it from disappearing into the image. I think I still have time before publication so.....

Now that you mention it, the sole of his boot does need some shading. Do what you feel is right.

"Under the Moons of Mars", Edgar Rice Burrough's first published work, was serialized in All-Story Magazine in 1912. He submitted it with the pen name "Normal Bean" as a sign that the fantastical happenings in the story were not the ravings of a lunatic, but the imaginings of a man with a normal "bean" (head, or brain). But the editors decided that "Normal" was a typo, so the story was published under the name "Norman Bean". When the story was published as a novel with the title A Princess of Mars, Burroughs decided to have it published under his own name.
