Medieval Spawn Witchblade Pin up raw scan by JoeWeems5 Medieval Spawn Witchblade Pin up raw scan by JoeWeems5
Here's the raw scan of my Medieval Spawn/Witchblade pin up so you can see just how much work I put into cleaning the file in Photoshop for the full size print.
This was my first time inking Marc all the way back in 1996 and I turned it around in less then 24 hours. There are inconsistencies in the lighting here and there primarily in strands of hair on the horses' mane but I was young and still had much to learn. I was honored to be given such an epic piece to cut my teeth on especially considering I'd only been working for Top Cow a few months.

I inked the original back in 96...long before digital inking was even a thought. I spent the necessary time in Photoshop (with my limited knowledge of the program)to prep the file for full size printing. I regret nothing.

why was there never a spawn darkness crossover since they seem to be in the same universe if he can cross over with witchblade?

You'll have to ask Marc and Todd. Seems a logical and probably lucrative cross over.

Your ink work even back in 96' is outstanding.
