Britannia art gallery & appreciation thread! A lot of us are looking forward to Britannia.
I know a few of us have already started picking original art from this series.
Post your Britannia original art acquisitions here and/or share your thoughts on the imagery.

Britannia #1 Variant Cover by Andres Guinaldo
I love the detail on this piece. Lots of of intricate linework in the sheids, grounds, and weapons. Mysterious and epic.
I like that this was the FCBC promo piece and also a variant cover. Really cool trade dress they are going with btw, too!

Britannia #1 Variant Cover by Ryan Lee
Why buy one cover to issue #1 when you can buy two? :D
I've been meaning to a Ryan Lee piece to my collection for awhile now. Thought this would be a good one to start with.
Moody, creepy, and dark! I love the textures, the silhouettes and the storytelling.

Nice pick-ups, Dan. I had been thinking about contacting Ryan Lee about that cover. Guess I won't bother now. :)

I don't have a good scan yet, but here's Juan José Ryp's cover for Britannia #2. I normally prefer to get fully inked pieces, but Ryp's pencils have a very "finished" feel to them.

Britannia #2 Cover B by Adam Gorham

Initially, I thought this might be a cover for Britannia #1 as it was among the very first images released by VEI. However, as the design is similar to Lewis LaRosa's Britannia #1 cover and it seemed to be a better idea to separate the two.

I had this piece custom framed along with Adam's original preliminary concept art.

Britannia #3 Cover B by Adam Gorham

I had not intended to purchase this cover originally, however, when the offer to buy was given I decided that there was a visually unique nature about this piece, and also that it appears to be the first time this particular character was featured on a cover. Once Britannia is release later this year we will of course know more.

There is a LOT of ink here, and Adam further employed a bit of white ink splatter over the black to later be colored as part of the flames. This ink (as is often true with Adam's work) provides a significant amount of texture to the original artwork.

I had this piece custom framed along with Adam's original preliminary concept art.

I can confirm that Dinesh owns Lewis LaRosa's cover for Britannia #1.

I strongly wanted to purchase this cover from Lewis, however, I had just completed the deal for Adam's Britannia #2 cover and was handling a few other large purchases at the time. I spoke briefly with Dinesh about the covers, and he pulled the trigger shortly thereafter.

This move led me to pull the trigger on LaRosa's Savage #1 cover a short while later.
