Xabiroi Cover Illustration | Photo by Emma Nuttall
Hi there! I finally get to post this. A couple of months ago I was commissioned to create the cover for Xabiroi Comic Book Magazine. The subject for the cover was left entirely up to me, so I decided to take my Post-Apocalyptic Kids series one step further and do a full on painting of the toughest kiddo yet. Additionally, a lot of emotion went into this painting, since I made it as a gift to one of my buddies, who tragically lost a leg in a motorbike accident about a year ago. This is for him, because he really IS the toughest kiddo yet.
Bellow you can see the final illustration without any text. I hope you guys like it. Also, in a couple of days I will be posting a timelapse video showing the process of creating this image, so stay tuned if you'd like to see that. Thanks!
