Fantasy Art and Comics: Sexy necromancer and gargoyle Heavy Metal cover design

Darkness: Heavy Metal Edition

© Brian Vigue

Alive in the Darkness was conceptualized around Halloween 2014, but the actual drawing was tinkered on throughout the winter. She drew a bit of an audience as I toted her around various public locations to work on her. Finally she was displayed— then stolen— from the 2016 Maine Open Juried Art Show, and her popularity skyrocketed. Heavy Metal Magazine called out for artist submissions of a summer cover for 2016, so this was my design. Originally a tall piece with little head room, fitting her onto the cover called for some extra creativity. Rotating the image gave it a surprisingly nice dynamic, and I sharpened the outlines for an added comic-style touch. Thus it gets its own spotlight on Vigistry.
