The Rocketeer by Roboworks The Rocketeer by Roboworks
I did this ages ago for a convention program book. Dave Stevens was in attendance because I think it was the 10 year anniversary of the Rocketeer or something. I can't remember.

Anyway, I got a huge compliment from Mr. Stevens and it pretty much made my decade. I'm so happy I had the chance to meet the man.

On a side note, I walked 13 miles to watch The Rocketeer on opening day and it was worth every step. ;)

I had recently watched this, and I still enjoy it. Dated effects aside, it still holds up, in my opinion.

I'm hoping to spend my Christmas money on that super-nice hardcover collection =)

LOVED that movie and character- awesome take on him! I like how the shadows are masking the colors, but you can still make out the shape of him =D

My only complaint with that movie is Cliff doesn't get enough screen time as the Rocketeer. I want Rocketeer 2 and 3. Course the'll have to recast, because Jenn Connelly doesn't have her 40's curves anymore. Nice work.

Really suits the feel of the film and era of the comic. There should definitely be more Rocketeer fanart. =)

very nice work i love your usage of the dot matrix color pattern really helps out the black positive space and creates a nice use of negative space as well.

This is such an under-loved movie. Really one of those greats that nobody I know seems to have watched it.

Seriously? I was just drinking tea out of my old ass Rocketeer mug and admiring the art thinking "there should totally be more Rocketeer fan art."

Huzzah! :D

I love the style you drew in - the mostly silhouette thing going on is really eye-catching.
