Army of Darkness sketch cover commission!

Here's a commission for my buddy Nick. It's a sketch, on an army of darkness #1 blank variant comic. I have to admit that these covers are a real challenge.... They take ink halfway decent ( although it takes a bit longer to dry, so you have to be careful) but it doesn't take marker very well. Only lighter shades, and you can't blend, and the markers colors you do lay down, come out several shades lighter than they normally would due to the lack of absorbency of the stock. So I used a variety of ink washes , thin layers of markers & colored pencil to try & get the color to work. The results were better than I'd hoped, however it is far less vibrant and saturated than my normal marker drawings... These covers are best suited for black & gray...
