Modesty - Warlords of Phoenix by Loopydave Modesty - Warlords of Phoenix by Loopydave
New issue of Agent X9 "Warlords of phoenix" Modesty story and the second cover I did for the magazine (first one here [link] ) Its just hitting the streets in Sweden so I have permission to post it.

Big Modesty Blaise fan, so it was really great to get another go at a cover - a few more of them and I might start getting a real handle on the character :D.

All 13 covers for this year can be found at the official Modesty Blaise Agenxt X9 blogsite [link] and include work from Modesty artist Romero and the talented Kim Andersson - the blog is running a "cover of the year" poll there, so go vote if you like!:D

It's all good. Vampire Savior/Darkstalker's following is miniscule in comparison to others'. It's a niche game in an even more niche genre. You might say one of the characters within the game --Morrigan Aensland-- is more mainstream/popular than the game itself. So fret not; you get to keep your head. Haha.

Jeebus! This is amazingly good; I've been a Modesty Blaise fan for decades, and when I saw the thumbnail for this I thought "That looks like Modesty" without knowing that anybody was publishing her again!

:D Thats cool! Modesty is a difficult character to capture so am quite flattered you recognised her here without her traditional black tights and skivy :)

I am so pleased that you actually made her look like herself ^^ Bravo! Big fan here as well, and a cover with an unrecognisable Modesty is pretty muchtheworst imaginable. Perhaps only beaten by a whole story with her being unrecignisable ...

good work! :D

Thanks - means a lot. :) This was my second cover, and I'm commissioned to do 2 more next year, so hopefully I can continue to improve on getting her look right. Cheers!

I was just downstairs and looked at this image! My parents read Modesty Blaise so it keeps coming here, and I really noticed there was a change in style for the fronts. I think it looks really good, and I'm really impressed. :D
May I ask what program you used to make this? =P
