Fan Art Friday a day early!
This was inspired by the arcade-fight-style action epic Burn The Orphanage by sinagrace and Daniel Freedman (from Image Comics)! It’s an homage to the book as well as taking a tip off the arcade aspect of the book and recreating the shitty crazy carpet and excessive neon that exist in my memory from every arcade I ever frequented as a kid.
Love this book! Can’t wait for the third issue! If you haven’t read, it’s the story of Rock (center) with his friends Lex (left) and Bear (right) as they fight their way through to who burnt down Rock’s orphanage when he was young, and the demonic plot behind it. The first chapter was very reminiscent of Streets of Rage while the second was very Mortal Kombat… can’t wait to see how the third book wraps everything together!
