Page 18

I know I promised to show more of the Alcatraz comic book illustrations, but once again I've been tardy.
Here is the page that shows one of the escaped prisoners washed up at Fort Point in San Francisco. He did survive (for details you'll have to buy the book :). The main challenge here is that this is a true nocturne. He probably arrived here after 9 PM in December. Quite dark. So I used a bit of license with the phosphorescence of the waves.
I also must confess that I used Photoshop for the figure. I painted him separately, scanned him and dropped him in. It's a pretty nice painting with him or without him.
