Modesty cover by Loopydave Modesty cover by Loopydave
The first of 4 Modesty covers for me this year with a closer view of Modesty thrown in for good measure...the issue just hit the streets so it should be okay to post the artwork.

Pencil sketch, painted in photoshop.
No beautiful women were harmed in the painting of this cover.

You know, I almost wish I could find some flaw in your technique so I could say - well, he's not that good....but, dammit, your work is just bloody terrific!!  I'm choosing this piece to comment on, because I'm a Modesty Blaise fan (the strips, most of which I have, and the novels, when I can get them) and you've really got her here! Just - aagh, just beautiful work! I take my hat off to you.

:wow: You paint this with mouse or with wacom Dave?

Loopydave Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012  Professional
I dont use a wacom - do all my digital painting with a mouse. I tried a wacom tablet many years ago, but the lag time between hand movement and what happened on the screen was so annoying at the time, I just stuck to using a mouse and now I'm really quite used to it! :D

Thanks for showing Modesty, she has been one of my favorites, ever since I read the books.

Modesty has been one of my favourites too - and like you, I discovered her through the books, long before I even knew about the comics.
Cheers!

Was lucky enough to have my friend pose for this one - not only does she look a little bit like modesty, but she looks like she knows what she's doing with a sword too :D

Really nice work. :) She's one of my all time favorite. :P This reminds me of Romero's work. :)

I love modesty and Romero is a legend! He drew her for something like a total of 23 years, so it was an honour to work on this cover
Cheers!
