Well, it's the new year, and 2011 still sounds like the year from a sci-fi movie to me, but hey, these are strange days we live in.
Anyway, here's the inks for my variant cover to Spike #8 from IDW. It's the last of my covers for this run, and I suspect for the Whedonverse, unless there are any more collected books or issues before Dark Horse gets back the various titles in a few months.
For this cover, I chose to go with the same "film" noir, high-contrast look as the last cover. I gave Spike a bit heavier coat than his usual leather jacket, and turned the collar up for more shadows.
