Matthew Clark posted these on facebook. Cool to see the progression.
Interesting that the girls were originally going to be Kara and Melissa and then
changed to Flamingo and Kris.

Nice. Like the progression. Guessing they changed up the girls to be more Harbinger War and less Bloodshot-centric. I like his work a lot, but I think I like his version of Pulse and Kara better than Flamingo and Kris. When I saw the original post, I thought Kris' face shape seemed a bit different. I hadn't seen the original drawing. Makes sense now.

Bloodshot has been eating his Wheaties (and a few Nebraska cows, rare)

Thanks for sharing.

And Bloodshot's hands have to be gigantic to embrace those Desert Eagles like that.

Nice. Cool to see what he re-drew to get Kris & Flamingo in there (I'm looking at the hatching around where the gun will end up. Photoshop is such an essential tool these days!)

I have to say, I like the original better. 1) Kris with a giant gun does not look right and 2) With every other HW cover showing Bloodshot and the Rengades fighting to the death, it seems out of place.

I'd agree. I like that this is two pieces. Best of both worlds. The original piece represents how the Bloodshot series has been developing on it's own with
Melissa and Kara as strong supporting characters. The patch piece is a nice tie in with Harbinger and Harbinger Wars. I hope they don't make Kris
into a gung-ho gun wielder. She may occasionally have to defend herself with weapons but she is the brains and the strategist of the group.
