WARRIORS OF MARS No. 5 by JoeJusko WARRIORS OF MARS No. 5 by JoeJusko
Cover to the 5th and final issue. this issue of the series takes place many years in the future. Earthmen are terra firming Mars and encounter Gullivar Jones and the daughter of John Carter and Dejah Thoris. I had fun making up the retro spacemen and playing with backlighting once again.

It's not your best work but I love its dinamics, just like in Kirby's panels.

There were either 11 books in the series or 14 depending on how you look at it . Doesn't matter this is a wonderful picture .

Why would ANYONE want to terraform Barsoom? It's just lovely as it is! ;-)

The more I look at the spacemen the more I'm reminded of toy figures I had as a kid in the early '60s. The helmets and backpack were a single piece of flexible gold plastic you placed over the spaceman figure and carefully pressed the belt shut.

I didn't get into many sci fi books, but I always loved the cover art. Nice job.

Did you base the spacemen's helmets on Robbie the Robot from Forbidden Planet? They really remind me of him, especially the little antennas.

the daughter of John Carter and Dejah Thoris.

Would that be Tara, as introduced in The Chessmen of Mars?

Beautiful artwork Joe, love the way you do skin tones & rendering. Also love the way you did the rocks & background!:painter:
P.S. Do you paint on straight canvas, or do you put a clear coat on it 1st?..

I work on unprimed cold pressed illustration board. I varnish it afterward.

Nice. this one has a strong Hildebrant vibe.
The space men also make me think that you need to do some Rocketeer covers sometime;)

I owe IDW a Rocketeer piece! Thanks for reminding me! :-) And yes, the lighting is a definite Tim Hildebrandt lesson.

Man, did Disney manage to screw the pooch on this.
Don't know why they couldn't have stuck with the books and/or use all the other source material out there - like, say, the artwork of Joe Jusko, for chrissake!

Another great piece of said artwork, dude.

I would have killed to paint the movie poster! It's a great movie that suffers from a horrendous marketing campaign.

Jeez, wonderfull piece man, just fantastic! I love the picture overall, but somehow I would have prefered to see some Suns in the sky :O

JoeJusko Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012
Barsoom has two moons, but the same sun we do. You don't need the sun in the picture to know it's sunny out. Showing the sun would be redundant and distracting from the main focus of the piece. Knowing what to edit is as important as knowing what to include.
