Hack Slash 5 by jfrison Hack Slash 5 by jfrison
Cover for Tim Seeley's :iconcoltnoble: Hack/Slash #5 for Image.

Here's what Image has to say:

Guest-artist Kyle Strahm steps in as the skull-faced mystery woman Fantomah comes to Cassie and Vlad for help. But, what could a super powerful goddess, known for her horrible (yet creative) methods of tormenting evil doers, need with a teenage girl and a mutant with a machete?

Here's what I have to say:

I wanted to capture the mood I love from vintage lithos of the Assumption or Immaculate Conception of Mary for this piece, since Fantomah is something of a Goddess...as if Cassie was in rapture. I decided to incorporate some of Mucha's designs from some of his old magazine or menu designs. The top two sections of the cover originally held a lion and an elephant (since Fantomah is the mystery woman of the jungle) but they totally threw off the flow of the piece, so I scrapped them.

Cassie is my favorite character to draw. Such a complicated and dynamic character and still funny and fun to read. READ THIS BOOK!

This is gorgeous! I love the composition-- it's really evocative of turn-of-the-century art nouveau magic posters, without ripping off Mucha. I also love the way you drew Cassie's body. It's soft and womanly-- she's not stick thin with a huge rack-- which is refreshing. You're awesome. :love:

Some great design elements here. I particularly like (this may seem quite insignificant seeing as the overall image is so awesome!) how the frame flows into the image creating the separate panels...if that makes sense!

Fantastic piece. As I believe that I mentioned b4, I really enjoy that in recent months that your work has taken on a darker tone, but u've still kept your subtle nuances in tact. BRAVO!!!

lol I can understand how American's addicted with Mucha, but why Magen Davids? :XD:

It's a pretty common religious symbol. Not just Jewish but a little in other religions as well.
