Dr. Killdeath's Little Golden Book

Here's the cover to the Dr. Killdeath Little Golden Book.

I loved Little Golden Books when I was a kid. I would have especially loved this one; it would have been right up my alley. Somehow I doubt the parents of today would be thrilled by a book with kill, death and doom in the title.

Maybe someday I'll tackle the inside of the book.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet, on about 100 layers. The Doc was a pretty straightforward drawing, but his raygun gave me a lot of trouble. It went through about twenty different versions. I couldn't figure out how to draw it and still fill up the empty space above his head. Finally I got the bright idea to add the totally superflous Flash Gordon fin on the top.

The little icons at the left are from some horror dingbat font. I may have gone a little overboard on the aging. It's easy to do too much.
