Alex Ross Paints Dredd
« on: 07 May, 2021, 10:00:45 AM »
For those who haven't seen this on Twitter yet this morning
What's the chance Tharg can talk the man around with this as the cover, like he did for the other week's Dermot Power piece.

Would love a cover by him as well.
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Not being too familiar with the US side of comics, I have to admit I had his brother Bob in my head when I opened this thread, and was very confused.

But yeah, I know the guy now.  He's awesome and that's a lovely piece of work.

It'd be awesome if Alex gets to draw a cover of a potential Dredd epic.

I really like how he's captured Dredd's aged and grizzled skin.  I know there's been rejuve jobs and all, but I like my Dredd looking weathered.

Something about the roundness of the chin and the tilt of the head makes me think he used Ron Smith's Dredd as reference material and added the older look.

Very nice picture, but them I'm a big fan of Ross. It would be interesting to see the whole uniform.
