Darkness 2 Contest Page by ErikWilliams Darkness 2 Contest Page by ErikWilliams
When I saw this contest, I flipped my wig. Draw Top Cow characters? Yes please. To possibly be included in an actual issue of the Darkness? Check. To be judged by Marc Silvestri himself? Sweeeet. I had so much fun drawing this one, but the wording of the rules was nebulous. Just to be safe, it is fully lettered... though obviously the lettering is on a layer to be stripped away with the quickness if need be. And I drew a in-between version of the comic book, and the video game Jackie... I gave him the demon arms and one darkling and that's all.

Marc Silvestri was a huge influence on me growing up, and so was Dale Keown, who I think is one of the great unsung talents of the comic industry. Mr. Keown still does occasional work for Top Cow, and it's always amazing.

I always lamented being far too young to send off work to the talent searches in the 90's like the Homage/Wildstorm and the Extreme Studios ones. This is the closest thing I've seen in my adulthood, and I want to thank DeviantArt and Mr. Silvestri for putting it together.
