Jon Davis-Hunt - Invasion of the Gabber Robots!

When it's a strip or a cover featuring giant, stompy robots, there's really only one droid to call, Mr Jon Davis-Hunt! Once again, the 3riller's droid shatters our circuits by delivering an action packed, beautifully complex masterpiece!

Below is Jon's thumbnail, he says "My appalling thumbnail! Tharg is a legend for trusting me on these!"

Jon was never very good a Pictionary...

With the erm... exquisitely detailed thumbnail approved, Jon lashes up a slightly less rough version and simply inks on top. No wussy pencils for this artdroid!
"Can you tell what it is yet?"

And here are his finished inks. Good Grud, I wonder which poor colourist has to colour that!?! That mess of tangled tentacles and slimy jowls will be a nightmare...

Day of the Tentacle

Jon colours his own work, talk about making a rod for your own back! Of course, he's done a fantastic job; I love the textures on the background and the muted colours on the lower tentacles. It's always cool to see the JDH trademark lighting effects!

Mindbogglingly wonderful colouring by an artist at the top of his game

 And below is the prog as you'll see it n the shops (or your digital copy!)

Thanks to the always lovely Jon Davis-Hunt for sending the images. Please take the time to visit his fantastic site here!
