The Artwork behind HIGH MOON
In his LiveJournal, artist Steve Ellis talks a little bit about the art process behind HIGH MOON:
The artwork I did for HIGH MOON is gritty and dark and takes heavy influence from crazy western films like Jodorosky's El Topo, Django, as well as High Plains Drifter and Unforgiven. We've added the whole horror angle which fits seamlessly with the Western feel...
I'm very proud of it. I did the penciling, inking, and coloring. Much of the art was done directly on computer but has a textured dark threatening feel which works with the storyline.
Steve also mentions one of the best parts:
It's ... a supernatural western/horror, involving six guns and werewolves....it starts out as a mystery and I think it will be a blast when we reveal the final twist.
