Hey True Believers!
A few weeks ago I attended San Diego Comic Con (or SDCC for short) and had the pleasure to meet Marc Silvestri in person (He, his wife, and I have been twitter buddies for a few months now). Marc is freaking AWESOME and is the CEO and founder of Top Cow Productions (as well as an incredible artist!), which houses some of my most favorite comic books like Witchblade, Artifacts, The Angelus, The Magdelena, and The Darkness. Marc was kind enough to give me a few books and the book below which he signed for me (I would have posted a pic of the signed one, but my friend has it right now by accident lol).
I loved the colors so much, that I told him my next look would be a Darkness look, inspired by the colors of the cover of The Darkness #105 SDCC Exclusive Variant (above).
The Darkness a.k.a Jackie Estacado is a bearer of one of the mystical/supernatural artifacts in the Top Cow universe. His powers only work at night and during the day he’s usually a crime boss. So he’s kind of a bad guy with good guy tendencies every now and then; An anti-hero if you will. I focused on using his armored form and the spiky tendrils he makes when he kills people. (again, he’s a bad guy lol). He can also create “Darklings” out of his powers. They are little demon like creatures that also do his bidding. I went more artsy with this one as something more “wearable” didn’t seem to fit this one quite right.

Hey True Believers!
Recently I’ve had the honor of being followed by the creator of Top Cow Comics, Marc Silvestri, on Twitter and my Facebook page and it prompted me to revisit my original Witchblade look which I wasn’t quite fond of when I had initially posted it last year. I knew one day I’d redo it, and so decided now would be a good time to do so! I always wanted to be a little more artistic with it and being so flattered that Marc liked my work, it gave me what I needed to get that inspiration for Sara’s, the current bearer of the Witchblade, makeup.
Sara is drawn having different colored stones in her Witchblade with a red one usually on the back of her hand and the blue (shown above) near her elbow. I chose to go with the red stone on this look, mostly because I didn’t have any blue rhinestones to work with lol. I also collaborated again with my friend, Sara Richard, who provided the illustration of Sara wearing the makeup I designed. It can be seen near the bottom of this post!
I hope you like it!
