One of my favorite covers. I love to play with a limited pallete.

I'm a big fan. You're too good for DC mainstream comics. :)

This is amazing, Rafa! How you managed the perspective on the buildings to center the characters in the middle of the img, but still keeping the action lines, is just sublime. And how you master the limited color palettes is superb. I was thinking, you should definetly bug on :icongeddlee: to get some UpperDeck master pieces going on. It´s always good an extra cash, right ;)
Take care, Rafa

De nada, Rafa. Solo pido que el 4 de septiembre, no nos hagan muchos goles en el partido Brasil-Argentina, por eliminatorias, je.
Yo se que tenes el celular de Dunga, llamalo y decile que no nos hagan mas de 2 goles :)
1 gran saludo, Rafa

as cores que você usou são animais, me lembro que quando comprei a revista rock'n roll do gabriel e do fábio, eles fizeram a capa com essas cores, eu fiquei louco com o resultado, impresso fica ainda mais bonito!

I like the 2 color pallete...with the white you get the 3 color; red, white & blue!

Sneaky of you to make it all come together with the USA flag motif.

GREAT job Raf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :headbang:

me encanta, rafa!! también me gustan bastante las ilustraciones con una paleta reducida. ojalá intentaran eso de vez en cuando con jonah hex (ese coloreado "noventero" sencillamente no encaja)

Fantastic! Very dynamic angles and poses and made all the more arresting by the stark and limited palette. Love it!

One of my favorite covers now, too. Those kinds of stark two-toned almost propaganda-style images are the ones that really jump out at me from the stands. Great work here.

Yeah, it gives the art (and, in my experience, the artist) more focus. This looks really good. Saw it in Marvel's solicits and it leapt out, even as a thumbnail.
