For the Kingdom

Letting my big brother, Roby, have a bit of the spotlight today. Here’s a huge tribute piece he did a while back, which has elements from covers one thru three of Waid and Ross’s Kingdom Come series under DC’s Elseworlds imprint. My teeth would probably melt if I tried something like this, so props to the man.

Hello, all. I did this piece ten years ago, a couple of months after KC came out. A real big fan of Alex Ross, I loved the way he did the covers for the first three books of his classic series. The way he decided to pose all major characters in one shot, as if done in a studio, added even more depth to already incredible artwork. It’s as if they all decided to take time out from their busy “superhero” lives just to pose for one iconic photo op. It made the whole piece come alive.    – Roby
