DEEP BLUE #2 . . .

Here's the cover for issue two. There'll be a few changes in the final version but this is pretty much done. I took a different approach than I normally do, color wise. Let me know what ya think.

I enjoy the lighter pallet, I find it a lot easier to enjoy the line work. The female lead looks awesome. It is quite a change from the dark side. To me this says acton-packed and clever. The DEEP BLUE #1 cover says action-thriller. I love this overall, cant wait to see more!
