GALLERY Sketches /Green Arrow #1 Cover Sketches / Comic Cover Art / Figures
A little know secret is that the
ORIGINAL cover to Green Arrow #1 was, in fact, the piece of art that was ultimately used for the cover to Green Arrow #2. The sketch was approved but, once I finished the painting, it was decided that this image spoiled the last-page surprise of the first issue comeback tale. I was only told that we needed a new cover to the first issue--“something iconic” being the only criteria. So, I decided to give them a real variety to choose from and turned in six finished
sketches. Typically, I only turn in one sketch for any given cover but I thought this would be fun and help me get a feel for the character and just depicting archery in general.
