THE ROCKETEER by Ron Salas



I figure 10 til 3 in the morning is a good time as any to flash my Twart.
I know I'm using that diagonal again but so what??

That's great, Ron. Nice design and lovely inks.

As usual, nice contrast. Cool to see Cliff without his helmet on. Looks like he's rushing off to take flight. Great job!

I love it, Ron! Man, you're work is bold as hell. I love all the black spotting. Great job!

Ron I continue to be impressed with your use of the positive and negative space in your work - well done (now get Existence 3.0 #2 out please)

Francesco Francavilla said...

Really cool heroic shot, Ron, and awesome bold inks :D
The nightshift paid off ;)

Cheers,
Francesco

Ron Salas said...

Thanks guys!

Mike, since I've done essentially the same thing the past three weeks I'll probably switch it up next week and go for line. Glad you like the blacks. :)

Brikhed, I'm done with #2! It has been done for some time now. I hope it'll come out soon.

Francesco, thanks! I feel like I've been on the night shift for months!

Very punchy, sir! And don't under-sell that sweet diagonal--it's great!

ANDY KUHN said...

very iconic, i dig it!

Declan Shalvey said...

The diagonal works man. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Mitch Gerads said...

Can't get enough of your spot blacks, Ron! A terrific character piece!

Ron Salas said...

Well thanks guys. I'm glad you like it.
Can't wait to find out what next week's will be.

Wow, this is just beautiful!

Chris Samnee said...

Your use of blacks is so bold and moves the eye across the composition perfectly.
Love it, sir!

Michael Lapinski said...

Clever concept to show him with his helmet off and then feature it in all of its art deco glory.

Ron Salas said...

Thanks guys! Glad you like it.

Chris - That means a lot, coming from you. Especially since most of the time I don't really know what I'm doing. It's mostly instinctive.

Michael - Thanks. After watching the rocketmen serials I feel that those helmets are a little bit awkward to wear. But they're great as design elements!
