The Rocketeer!! Obviously one of my faves!! I went for a retro poster look with this one and instead of using the actors of the film version, used the same inspirations that Dave Stevens used with himself as Cliff Secord. Very pleased how this came out. Share it if you like it.

I kind of liked it when I first finished it but then quickly found myself being quite ambivalent about it. It seemed to generate some positive interest on social media but that didn't change my view of it. Maybe I will feel differently about it again one day.
