Should I call the MIB? by RayArtz Should I call the MIB? by RayArtz
Been wanting to post this for over a month!
My freshmen venture into the comic world.

This is cover ‘A’ for the new quarterly comic by Zenescope Entertainment titled Perfect Mate, due out sometime next year.

Lines by: Al Rio
Colors: Corey Knaebel -- That’s me yo!

***EDIT***
Hair revisions! an artistic decision between Zenescope and myself. We bounced ideas around in order to make the character less Starfire-esque. We also decided to drop the blue eye glow. I personally miss the glow as I felt it made it a bit more mysterious. However, I think we made good descision with the hair. For Al Rio's preliminary drawing of this cover check out this link and scroll down: [link]

I like this version a lot more. And the published cover got me to look at/buy the comic.

yeah it is actually weird, they had me change the hair to what you see here
but they ended up going with the original colors on the printed cover, haha!
I thank you a lot though it was my first ever comic to work on.

I'm still a bit partial to the glowing eyes too. They could have been toned down, but they did look more interesting.

I just visted the page ([link])and that is the right one. This image actually needs to be updated. They had me go back and do some revisions to the hair and those revisions were the dark brown and red streaks. Feel free to type in Corey Knaebel for the ??? marks haha, I'm a new-commer and this is actually my first ever cover. It was truly an honor to do a Rio piece! I hope he likes how it turned out.

Took me a few to realize it wasn't DC's Starfire. Between the red hair, the boots and the outfit, I couldn't tell. The skirt and the notes were the only things that gave it away. @_@

Originally she was colored as a blond, but the editors wanted a darker auburn color
I even said-- looks like Starfire haha!

Actually she's not an Alien--she's a cyborg ;)

Alien/cyborg same difference haha. Either way if she's either A) Hot or B) Seven of Nine then it's all good ;)

That's good. It sucks when you hate doing something, but it comes out wonderful. It's not exactly what art's about, to me. It's about doing what you love and being good at it. Well, that's the idea anyway, ya know?
