All-New Ultimates #1 Cover by DNA-1 All-New Ultimates #1 Cover by DNA-1
Just announced!  In the wake of Galactus' devastating attack on the Ultimate Universe, an all-new team of Ultimates will step up--Spider-man (Miles Morales), Cloak & Dagger, Spider-Woman, Bombshell and Kitty Pryde.  Read more about the new title and the future of Ultimate universe here:  www.newsarama.com/20005-all-ne…

This one had to be produced a little faster than normal, so I decided to go with a bolder and more graphic style than I might've otherwise.  It's dramatically different from the highly detailed, realistic stuff I've been doing recently, but the response has been phenomenal so far!  So it turned out to be a VERY happy accident.  Let's see where this goes...

Thanks, Catpop!  Had to do this one very quickly, but sometimes, that can lead to interesting results.

That's it exactly, and I learned a lot doing it.  Now I'm seeing what happens when I synthesize my old and new approaches together.

Hoping to do a cover focusing on them soon.  I think that'll be pretty sharp.

THAT was unexpected and refreshing! You have something going here! Hope you find it as inspiring and unique as I did. Great cover. Hope you get to a few more like it. BTW: Your regular style is just as good - I'm just amazed you can find the ability to maintain 2 distinct GREAT styles. Excellent! - I'll be following you and your Marvel titles!

Loved your comments, and thank you so much for the interest! It really does mean a lot to me. 

I enjoyed the book as well.  Thought the dialogue felt real and honest.  But let's get more about Jessica's change of costume stat!  I need to know why she did it/what being Black Widow means to her personally.  Definitely having fun playing around in this new style, and fortunately Marvel is letting me run with it.  Currently working on #6, but I don't yet have a sense of how the fan community is reacting to it versus other things I've done.  Also not sure if the average fan is as understanding as you are about an artist flipping between styles.  Guess it worked okay for Kaare Andrews, but there aren't a lot of other examples to go by.  Guess we'll see what happens!

David! These look awesome, but are they variants or the actual mass distro covers?

Thank you so much!  I've done a fair amount of work for Marvel over the years (recently did covers for Longshot, Avengers AI, and All-New Ultimates, and some unannounced stuff). You can see all my Marvel stuff in my gallery--there's a special folder just for Marvel.  :) Cheers!

ah yes! you were also the one who did the recent spider-man deadpool picture! it's amazing!! i have so many comics of Spider-man in my book case and it excites me every time to come across an official marvel artist in deviantart! I'll put you in the official marvel section list along with mike deodato and all the other good guys :D also, would you like to become a contributor to the club? :D nothing is expected of you, your icon will just be shown on the front page (which it already was in the list, hehe)

Really excited to check out the issue myself.  I only get a short description of the plot when creating the covers, so it's going to be brand-new for me as well. :)

I'm psyched!  It's just what the Ultimate U. really needs--a fresh start with situations you'd never see in 616.  The Ultimate U. works best when everything's unpredictable, and that's what this post-Cataclysm era's aiming for specifically.

Absolutely.  I think the whole Marvel Now! approach--remixing series with fresh new creators and storylines--has been tremendously successful, both for retailers and comic readers.  A good time to be reading comics. :)

Something new that I'm trying.  It definitely helps to give the books it's own unique identity, and people seem to dig it so far.  Guess we'll see how it goes!

I like how you did spidey's webbing, and his mask.

That's also a really good design for Cloak and Dagger. Did you get to envision them or were there other existing images of them you had to match? Either way, great cover.

Amazing layering for so "flat" an image. Very great work!

Y'know, I'd never drawn Cloak and Dagger before, and this is just what seemed cool to me--lots of dark tendrils for Cloak, and lots of light bloom on Dagger.  Hope I get the chance to draw them again, see how far I can take it.

Well, yes and no.  I had 2 nights to work on this, which is way less time than normal, so I knew that the usual painted thing was out.  Got the idea for silhouettes because that's all I had time for, but true, after that it was planned.  Never thought I'd be working in a style like this though, and I'm completely surprised by the positive reaction.  I worried a lot at first that people would look at this as half-finished or something.
