True Blood cover 1 Pencils by J-Scott-Campbell True Blood cover 1 Pencils by J-Scott-Campbell
Final pencils to my cover for True Blood #1! These were then turned into digital inks before coloring, a process in with the line-work is carefully cleaned up and darkened to provide high-contrast black and white line-art.

It's a lot more challenging to achieve likenesses without any sort of shading and highlights, when you're only left with raw line-work, but I was pretty happy with the results! Lafayette ended up turning out the strongest I thought!

You have some incredible caricatures here. You accentuated exactly the the right parts to make the characters instantly recognizable. I only watched a few episodes of true blood and it was a while back so I only had a vague memory of the appearance of the characters. I was looking through your gallery and clicked the thumbnail without reading the title at all. I instantly recognized the characters and was astounded at the likeness you achieved here. Incredible work!

I love the coloured pieces, but there's something outstanding about your B&W versions. They grow. And seeing the originals is even more breathtaking :)

The detail in your work, the way you capture and exaggerate the facial details in your portraiture is incredible. You're a serious talent. Thank you for sharing your pieces.
