I'd love to visit Japan one day! Maybe I should switch to manga. :)

Is the zip-a-tone a later digital add-in, or do you actually do that at the table (either way, I'm in awe of your skills with it).

Dude, I love the zip-a-tone dots on his jacket.

As an aside: In the "Vertigo" issue of Ellis' Planetary, the 'Constantine' proxy shaves his head and has Spider's chest and stomach tats as an acknowledgment of the Constantine influence on Transmetropolitan.

Sean Murphy taking commissions?? This means the world is coming to an end very shortly ;)
Great energy on those strokes, man. The design looks like a stamp from a bad ass smokers series.
Congrats, you dirty genius!

Really? That's reassuring. I worry that it doesn't look like much and then I tell myself it's good enough for Geoff Darrow. More coffee now.

For a minute there I thought you were posting an industry commissioned piece and touting that DC was ramping up Transmet interest again. This would have possibly meant a Transmet Movie deal in the works which i think the fans are salivating for. :)

You know if the whole comics thing doesn't pan out, you may be able to get work at Phillip Morris. They'd probably commision a"bad-ass dudes smoking," series.

Nice, very nice.

Did you add in the textures after digitally, or do you use the 'rub in place' zip sheets?
