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.

your lafayette is beautiful! jessica's dimples & shy expression really reflect her actress. jason is the only one who i wasn't sure at first who he was. maybe i'm just used to seeing him looking cocky and adorably stupid. :) sam looks great! i'm def gonna have to get a copy of these!

Not just lafayette man... They all look pretty damn good if you ask me!! You pretty much got Bill spot on too. I can't wait to get my hands on this when they release it here, if it's anything like the series then it's going to be ecxellent.

As someone who can't do likenesses to save his life, it's really impressive what you're able to do with these. They look like the real people and still retain that Campbell style. Truly impressive.
