Expensive week - 2 Amazing X-O originals (UPDATED)

Post by paradise »

From Dheeraj Verma (via Ebay), being represented by Al Rio Art. Never published but should be a cover (Dino has seen it)

From Will Conrad from Brazil, cover to this week's X-O Manowar #17

It's been an expensive week but SO worth it.

No both are b/w. I collect mostly original art. Except for painted pages I usually don't get colored work. I think I did it once, digitally, on a Bart Sears commission.

Conrads art has always lost something in the colorizing of it his Serenity art he did for Dark Horse was like that...

Beautiful pieces Art wow.
