Aquaman 54 Cover Final by TerryDodson Aquaman 54 Cover Final by TerryDodson
Here is the final cover art to the cover Aquaman 54 (this is my only Aquaman artwork I've ever done). The editor called and said,"We would like you to do draw a cover of Aquaman surrounded by mermaids." Sold!

I had a blast drawing this one as it was such a nice change from drawing typical superhero fare and settings.

I was really happy with how this turned out in color and DC ended up making a poster out of it as well.

HOWEVER, by mistake, DC ended up using an earlier uncorrected version of the colors for print, so this is the final version that you didn't see in print.;-)

Colored in Photoshop 5 with a Wacom Intuos Graphic Tablet.

Inked by Rachel Dodson.

No doubt they're beautiful mermaids!!  Wish you had shown a few of them with some more exotic traits like webbed fingers.

I love this cover!! I bought the last copy from a comic shop in San Francisco as they were closing down. It's been hanging on my wall ever since! :heart:

Which colors were wrong on the prints? I keep staring and I don't think I see the differences.

Was it something with the tones or shades?
