Funny how these seem like Photoshop. Maybe they've been retouched a little.

Seeing them here makes me wonder if Richard Corben's taste for pure, saturated color isolated by neutral boundries was formed looking at old Famous Monsters covers.

Quite a delightful blog; found you via a comment at Mr. Door Tree's blog.

Carry on, it's great!

I think these are some his more recent works from the 1990's. Definitely a color palette than his Famous Monsters covers.

Thanks for stopping by.
