The last time Joe Madureira worked on a comic cover it was in December 2016!
1 year an a half later this June, Joe didn't revealed 1 new comic cover but 3 connecting variants covers for Batman #50!

Not only that, Joe also officialized the website www.JoeMad.com!
It seems you will now have an official place where to order some exclusives comics and prints! ;)
When you will read that update there will still be some comics for sale so head over to www.JoeMad.com and grab yours!
Cover A can be bought alone while the other two can only be acquired by buying the full set of three:
  • Cover A: Batman and Catwoman limited to 2,800 copies
  • Cover B: Wonder Woman, Superman and Batgirl limited to 1,850 copies
  • Cover C: Joker, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy limited to 1,850 copies
Here is the direct link to the order page of this DC Comics Batman #50 Joe Madureira exclusive covers

... And the full picture with the beautiful colors by Grace Liu (Link to her Artstation page):
For those who particularly love the traditional pencil pages, Joe shared some "teaser" photos:
Battle Chasers Nightwar backers physical rewards: sketches set1
Battle Chasers Nightwar backers physical rewards: sketches set2
Battle Chasers Nightwar backers physical rewards: sketches set2
Battle Chasers Nightwar backers physical rewards: sketches set2

OK, that was THE big info!
But I owe you more for a single JoeMadArt.com update isn't it ;)
Now that Battle Chasers Nightwar is available on all the major video game platforms, the Airship Syndicate team shared more of their work on social medias and on my side I also had a few art left...

So here are some more Battle Chasers Nightwar arts to enjoy!

Let's start with some "upgrades" of some pieces of art already present on JoeMadArt.com

And as usual here are the new Battle Chasers additions to the site:
Note: Steve Madureira recently announced on the official Airship Syndicate forum that they were "boxing up and sending all of the signed goods to Tiny Fish" and that "Everything should be shipping soon". So if you are one the proud owners of any of the sketches that Joe did, then please share it on social medias!
... And if possible send me a HD scan or photo directly at ulkhror@joemadart.com please.

Special message to Joe: you are welcome to send me all the scans directly, it will be a lot easier for me than chasing them down on the Internet ;)

Stay tune! More JoeMadArt is coming! ;)

Last month I announced some exclusive arts by Joe Madureira. The title says it all!
I had the great privilege to exchange a few emails with Jason Rubin (Vice president Content OCULUS, Co Founder of Naughty Dog and creator of The Iron Saint / Iron and the Maiden). Jason was super kind, he sent me all the sketches that Joe did for his comic project in 2006/2007! You may have seen some of them in the comic but never with that quality! If you want to know more about that IP you can visit the official website of The Iron Saint.

I'm super happy to add those 14 concept arts done by Joe Madureira for The Iron Saint:
So that's all for the new arts. Well... In fact not ;).
But first just a few words regarding the website: You may have noticed a change in the menu and in the size of the font. I'm actually adjusting a few (many) things in order to make the website more "responsive" and pleasant to use on mobile. One big step was to remove the menu at the top and to replace it by some more "dynamic" menus triggered by some buttons (and no more an "onMouseover" event). Also, I red that the recommended font size for a website is "16px" (not on mobile but on a PC). That's a lot more than before so let's first have a try with 14px! ;)
Those changes are just one step forward a "responsive design" so be advise more adjustments will be made.

OK, back to more Joe Mad arts! ;)
The big event of this month is of course the release of Battle Chasers NightWar on Nintendo Switch (May 15th)!

Congratulations to the whole team at Airship Syndicate!

To celebrate that event and just as Joe is used to do sometimes he drew a fan art in collaboration with Grace Liu (colors)!
So here is Red Monika showing her Triforce tattoo to Link from Zelda breath of the wild:
And that's not all! As you probably know, all the kickstarter backers that pledged at a high tier will receive a sketch card penciled by Joe. The last Kickstarter update revealed 2 photos of the beautiful sketches those proud backers will get:
Battle Chasers Nightwar backers physical rewards: sketches set1
Battle Chasers Nightwar backers physical rewards: sketches set2
In addition to that event another one took place early this month thanks to Gameumentary! The long awaited Battle Chasers NightWar Documentary is available! Have a look, it's full of very interesting interviews!

Battle Chasers NightWar: The Documentary:


Now something else totally different but also very rare and maybe even more interesting for all the comic artists.
This month, Joe Madureira was asked a great question on twitter and he took the time to answer it in details! Enjoy!
Iria Riven / @Iriadescence on twitter: Joe do you have any tips or pointers for drawing dynamic panels for comic pages? I don't think i'm doing terrible, but I feel like I could be more creative with some of these, but I keep wanting to do "box on top, then fill in the rest" and it feels stale.

Joe Madureira: Lol.
Whew, the answer to this may be too long for Twitter. Page layouts are one of the things I enjoy the most (way more than actually filling them in most of the time)! In general, I think of it as a film. So, choose your shot.
- What's in the frame?
- How important is this panel? If it's important I'll go big, minor action, small.
- Is it a sweeping wide shot?
- A cramped vertical sliver?
The amount of information you convey helps create an immediate reaction from the reader.
In general tight, close in or cramped shots create some stress. Wide roomy shots offer some relief.
If you tilt or skew the panel, it creates energy, so use those for action shots.
Conversation stuff, I generally leave pretty static.
One last thing, and I got this from @robertliefeld early in my career--it stuck with me to this day, so thanks Rob! Pick one panel on the page to be the MOST important, and make that the 'money shot'. Every page should have one. If someone flips through your book in a comic shop, and just lands on 2 or 3 pages, any page they land on should have a money shot that makes them want to see more (webcomics are a little different but still a good rule). No opening to a 'dud'.

I hope you enjoyed this update!
Stay tune for more!

I hope that all those who waited for that Nintendo Switch version will really enjoy the game! :)
And for that update, let's keep Battle Chasers as the main theme:

Here are some comic pages inked by Tom McWeeney
A big special "thank you" to Tom McWeeney for sending me those scans!

And to finish, a simple reminder that the documentary about Airship Syndicate will soon be released by Gameumentary
But before that, Gameumentary released a short interview of Joe Madureira, Ryan Stefanelli and Steve Madureira a few days after the Darksiders documentary: Darksiders: The Documentary - The Many Elaborate Pranks of Vigil Games | Extended Interview. Enjoy!


Stay tune for more next month! Some good and exclusive stuff is coming! ;)

Hey all!
Here is the second part of the Inhuman #2 comic released in 2014!
You will probably notice that 2 pencil pages are missing... sadly... yes. I did everything I could but I was unable to find them.
But it's only a matter of time! I'm certain they will appear one day and you can count on me to solicit those that may have them (Joe, Marte if you read me) ;)
So if you see the pencil pages #14 & #15 contact me! ulkhror@joemadart.com

Here are the pages 10 to 20 of the Inhuman #2 comic:
Apart from that, the great guys at Gameumentary stroke again strong with an epic 90+ minutes long documentary dedicated to Darksiders 1 & 2! That documentary features many admirable former Vigil Games employees now working at Gunfire Games and Airship Syndicate: Joe Madureira of course but also David Adams, John Pearl, Ryan Stefanelli, Steve Madureira, Jeremy Robins, Colin Post and Jesper Kyd.

Watch now Darksiders: The Documentary | Gameumentary:

Note: Keep and eye on the productions of Gameumentary since you can expect even more great documentaries!

And to finish here is an excellent surprise, a comic blank cover sketched by Joe Madureira that I found on ebay (The auction is still opened! ;))
That's all for now!

Let's start this update with a shout out!
Last week Gameumentary released their "Joe Madureira Documentary - From Comics to Games"!
That's enough to make my day (well in fact a lot more than just that!).
I was also very happy that JoeMadArt.com was a useful source of images for their documentary!

So go watch that documentary now:

Note: Watch it until the end... it's worth it ;)

Following that it's difficult to get your attention isn't it?

So I decided to add all the 24 remaining concepts I have for Dungeon Runners / Exarch! Note: Regarding the poster, Joe mentioned he still has the pencil version but he hasn't shared it yet. Joe if you reads me... ;)

Small mention to finish this update, JoeMadArt.com is 2 years old this month!
With 24 arts in this update it was enough to make 2 updates but let's say this is to celebrate this birthday!
... and don't worry, I still have a lot more to add and I still expect to find even more!

And to finish, you can mark your calendar:
Trojan Horse was a unicorn Malta Valletta 2018 with Joe Madureira
Joe will be a "Knight" at the Trojan Horse was a unicorn unique six-day Digital Art event in Malta (Valletta) this coming September 24-29, 2018!
If you have the chance to go there you can expect some "Inspirational talks" and démos!!

See you in the next update!

Hey All,
As you can see I haven't decided to publish my updates earlier in 2018 ;)

For this first update of the year let me start with a big thank you to all the visitors and those who sent me some supportive emails/messages/tweets!
I appreciate those a lot so please keep doing!

In 2017 you were four time more numerous to visit JoeMadArt.com! I'm super happy with that result and I hope the growth will go on this year!
I also would like to thank in particular all the contributors to JoeMadArt.com.
As you may know I do my best to contact as many professional as possible that collaborated with Joe in the hope to get a never ever seen version of an art (HD, inked, text less, etc). After more than 2 years now, I was lucky to receive many unique pieces of art from a few fans but also from important people of the comic or video game industry.
So today I've decided to thank them all by dedicating them a new section: the Contributors!
I will try not to omit anybody and to list there all the contributors with some links to their personal website or social account when they have one.

So what's new this month!?
I've decided to do a small focus on the art of the game Gekido.
For the information, it's been a while I have them and I wanted to find the highest resolution before sharing them.
Unfortunately I was unable to find any better version... I contacted the people at NAPS Team and also Christian Lichtner directly but they answered me they don't have them anymore.:( ... Who knows, even if the chance are very slim they may appear one day...

For now, here is the best Joe Madureira arts that you can find for the game Gekido:
Just next, to complete this update here is four new pieces of art: Note: unfortunately again for this one, There's no good colored version... Only scans exist. I asked Justin Ponsor about it but he no longer has it :(

1994-01-01 (?)
X-Men House ad 1994
Note: I don't know how that last one was used... If you know anything about it please contact me! ;)

Note: Haaaaa that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles art! I've seen it so many times and each time I wondered if it was a print, a cover or simply a fan art. Finally I was able to discover its origin! It took me some time to discover but it was part of a feature titled "The Big 80s" in the Wizard magazine #111 which invited big name comic book artists to draw their favorite 80s cartoon characters!

And let's wrap this update with some very nice pencil versions! My favorites ;)
So that's all for this time! But I'm certain this year will be full of Joe Mad! arts!
What can we expect for 2018?
- We should see some new arts related to the rewards of the Battle Chasers NightWar Kickstarter campaign (Pencil sketches, artbook, prints)
- Joe should release the Battle Chasers #10 comic!
- We should have the pleasure to discover more about Joe through the documentaries that Gameumentary will reveal soon!
- If we are lucky enough Joe and Airship Syndicate may announce their next game!
- And probably more! ;)

So stay tune!
The best has yet to come! ;)

You know how I like the Darksiders series right!?
So ending the year with an update about Darksiders is just perfect for me!
Early this year Haydn Dalton added many early concepts that Joe Mad! did for Darksiders, you can find them below plus a few others!

Thank you Haydn!

Have a look to his website and read/watch some good behind the scene stories about the game industry and his experience at Vigil Games!

So let's start with some art upgrades:
Note: Special mention to those 3 Darksiders 2 Death key arts. They are among my favorites and you can now look at them in HD!
Not only the resolution is now 4k (Original size is 8kpx!) but in addition the quality of the scans is sublime!


Note: That last one is a variant of the previous version
Only the "downloadable" versions have been updated (Click on the link of the resolution).

Next are some rough "Energy Sketches" Joe did for Darksiders
Joe has that epic skill to be able to draw some very powerful and badass sketches with minimalist lines! Epic!
I love Haydn's comments about Joe:
"Having somebody so talented who could realize ideas like these, so easily, is beyond useful in the design process"

Rough Darksiders "Energy Sketches" by Joe Madureira:
Even better now, some exclusive Darksiders arts!
And to finish a small art update of an art Joe Mad! and Grace Liu did 1 year ago for Geek and Sundry critical role:
Note: I tried to find a better version of that one for so long! So happy! Now I need the line version! If you read me Joe...
You can find more of the art of Grace Liu on Artstation

Special Shout-out for Darksiders3


Gunfire Games and THQ Nordic released a New gameplay footage for the game! Have a look!


That’s a wrap!
I hope this year was great for you as much as it was great for JoeMadArt.com.
As always I tend to think the best has yet to come so I hope next year and the years after will be full of Joe MAd! arts! ;)

I wish you all season's greetings! let's meet again next year!

Just on the finish line!
Yes I know I'm very late again for this update but you know what? This is not my fault!
Everything is because of the release of Battle Chasers NightWar! I have played about 100 hours and killed more than 2300 monster... Blame Joe Madureira and the Airship Syndicate team for giving us such a great game! You can find Battle Chasers NightWar on Steam here.

Ok stop the excuses!
In honor of the recent release of Thor: Ragnarok Joe dug some "Thor" stuff he did during the past years.

So I jumped on this occasion to do a focus on Thor as well:
You can buy Ultimates 3 digitally on Comixology.com
Or you can buy Ultimates 3 digitally on Marvel.com

Note: While I haven't done any update on the 5 arts below, I thought it would be good to remind you those other comic pages with Thor:
And now let me give a special Shout-out at game Boss 101, A crazy shoot by Donley Time Foundation (Tim Donley) that is out since the 2 of November.
To celebrate the release, Joe did a fan art of Steve and Max:
You can buy Boss 101 on Steam right here.

... still not enough? OK!
so, just for fun Joe shared some quick doodles he did on a white board during a professional meeting, enjoy:
Whiteboard shenanigan Deadpool

Whiteboard shenanigan Batman
Whiteboard shenanigan Spider-Man

Yes!
After 2 long years of development Battle Chasers NightWar is officially out!
And what is even better is that the game fulfilled all his promises... and even more!
A large majority of the reviews have the same conclusion: Battle Chasers NightWar is fantastic!

Yes indeed the PS4 version suffered from a very frustrating bug but it has been corrected now.
Also the game isn't available for the Nintendo Switch yet but it's just a matter of time.
I think that all the backers can be proud of what Airship Syndicate accomplished!

All that to say that this is of course another good occasion to share with you some excellent Battle Chasers arts! ;)

First let's start with some official Battle Chasers NightWar arts plus two special "Thank you" from Joe:
In addition, some previously added pieces of art were updated with some better versions:
THQ Nordic also released 4 new Hero Spotlight trailers, check them out:

For the release of the game, some excellent interviews of Joe Madureira were also done:
I suppose that many of you are already wondering: "And what's next after Battle Chasers NightWar?"
Well you can read the answer in the interviews above:
Joe will now focus on the comic of Battle Chasers with the #10, #11 and #12 that will continue the story where the comic #9 stopped.
Joe will also work on the next game by Airship Syndicate that isn't an RPG (But rather a Metroidvania game hum?)
Anyway, nothing is set in stone yet and an another Battle Chasers game could also come sooner than later if the first one is really a success.

Let me finish this update dedicated to Battle Chasers by those pages from the comic (#2):
A big "thank you" again to Tom McWeeney who sent me the scans of those inked pages!

I hope you will enjoy Battle Chasers NightWar and that you will spread the world about it!

Until next time!

I'm super happy to share with you some unique pieces of art that Joe Madureira did on Darksiders (and a little bit more ;))
Let me say a special and huge "thank you" to Pio Ravago III aka "Master P" for the long and very interesting chats we had as well as, of course, the arts he accepted to share with me :). Obviously that update wouldn't have been possible without his contribution!

Thank you Pio!


For those who don't know, Pio is actually Principal Artist at Riot Games and also the one that did most of the textures in Darksiders!
It can be said that Pio was the #5 guy at Vigil Games back in the days after Joe Madureira, David Adams, Ryan Stefanelli and Marvin Donald.
So just those few words to let you understand that I was very honored to chat with that very kind person.

Anyway, what interest you are the arts right? So here they are.

Let's start with some humble updates of some images in "even better" resolution: Note: That epic art was colored by Pio in only 3 days! Amazing!

Note: This is the first "official" version of War. This is the version that was first presented to THQ: "War1st"

Note: I searched for a good version of that one for a very long time in vain. I can now change the poor 416 x 609px version by a nice 1094 x 1576px! :)

Here are now some new arts or alternate versions: Note: Have you ever seen that one? To be honest, I only knew until recently the official version colored by Christian Lichtner and used as the Play mag cover of August 2008. Well here is a beautiful variant by Pio Ravago III

Note: Yes! at last! Like me you've probably searched that one without finding it! Except the title this is the official cover of The Art Of Darksiders published by Udon Entertainment. The other version on the site is a variant (And I don't even know who colored it...).

Note: Another exclusive art I've never imagined I would ever find. That "texture" version is the original version that was used to create that iconic Darksiders key art that you all know! You can't imagine how happy I was when I discovered that one! :)

Note: Another exclusive art! ... very creepy indeed!

OK that's all for Darksiders...
But since Pio also worked with Joe on Dungeon Runners while at NCsoft he also gave me those 2 arts:
Now to wrap up this update let me say a few words about Battle Chasers NightWar:
I'm supporting that project since day 1 and after playing for more than 30 hours already on the alpha and the beta I can tell you it's worth buying it!
In less than a week now on October 3rd, more than 2 years after the official kickstarter campaign, everybody will be able to discover a beautiful, fun and epic adventure created by the talented people at Airship Syndicate!

For this occasion, Joe Madureira shared the official in game burst art for Knolan:
... as well as a nice Hero Spotlight trailer #1 dedicated to Knolan!



Stay tuned for more next month and Have fun with Battle Chasers NightWar! ;)

Hey!

If you red last month update, you know that the BETA of Battle Chasers NightWar will be live next week (August 29th)!
As a consequence, I decided to dedicate that update to the game and Battle Chasers in general.

So let's start with some Battle Chasers NightWar arts: Note: Indeed the concept images are old and in low resolution. As usual I hope to find some better versions later on ;)

Just in case you missed it, the official animated intro of Battle Chasers Nightwar (created by Powerhouse Animation) has been revealed this month.
Check it out!


Now let's go back to the 90's with Battle Chasers the comic!
I'm very please to share with you some HD image of the inked pages of Battle Chasers.
Those scans were given to me by Tom McWeeney himself! The official inker of those pages!
I thank you so much for that Tom!

Battle Chasers #1 comic pages inked by Tom McWeeney:
And thanks to Tom McWeeney again, here are some art updates with some HD scans! Note: I doubt you will ever find any better versions of those ;)

Also, here is another one that I wanted to add to the website for a long time now:
And to finish with the art updates, here is a HD version of the Thunderdome arena master Wallpaper! Enjoy!

Special Shout-out for Gameumentary!


To wrap up this update let me repeat the same shout-out as last month for Gameumentary and their project.
There's still 5 days left to reach their funding goal.
If you are eager to discover some behind the scene stories about the creation of the Darksiders and Battle Chasers games then follow the link and become a supporter: Gameumentary - Video Game Documentaries Kickstarter campaign

For the lucky ones like me who will be able to play the Battle Chasers NightWar BETA in 4 days I wish you to have fun!
With that big milestone I hope Joe Madureira will share some new concept arts he did for the game!

Let's see that soon! ;)

Dragon kind part 2 !
Here is all the arts I have left from that canceled game by TriLunar Entertainment!
That being said I still have hope to find some better resolution versions of those later on. If you think you can help, you can contact me here ulkhror@joemadart.com... And who knows, maybe that game will do a comeback one day? ;)

12 concept arts for Dragon Kind by Joe Madureira:
In addition to that, I wanted to share with you some art updates related to Street Fighter.
Arnold Tsand (Lead Character Concept Artist at Blizzard Entertainment... Just for the record, he is the one who created that formidable concept of DOOMFIST for Overwatch!) sent me some new HD versions of the arts he colored for Udon entertainment over Joe Madureira’s lines.
I'm certain you’ve never seen those pieces of art with those resolutions! :)

Udon entertainment Street Fighter art updates colored by Arnold Tsang:
And to finish with the new arts in this update, let me share with you another exclusive art for JoeMadArt.com!

The pencil version of this Resident Evil Outbreak PSM Magazine cover of 2004 in HD: Note: You may have seen a photo of this art framed but this is the first time a clean HD scan of it in can be seen!
Thank you again for that Arnold!

Special Shout-out!

In December 2001, after the cancellation of the comic Battle Chasers #10, Joe MAdureira, Tim Donley and Greg Peterson decided to form a game development company called TriLunar Entertainment.
The only game announced was Dragon Kind. It was planed for PS2 and XBOX but was canceled in 2002 after the studio came out of business (I suppose the game didn't find any editor...). The main hero was named Grail, he had the ability to control dragons and was evolving in the world of Vermilion.

Of course Joe did many key arts and concepts for the game, here are some of them:
Note: I know some of those arts are ridiculously small but those are the best I was able to find...
and I can tell you I spent a lot of time searching for them! If you have some better versions, please share them! ;)

That being said, you may have noticed 2 of those key arts are in very big resolution!?
Yes! I got some help for those since they are simply impossible to find on internet!
Epic thanks to Arnold Tsang who colored those key arts and who accepted to share them with me!
... but not only! Stay tuned for more very soon! ;)

OK now something else.
I don't know if this is related or not but following the release of Wonder Woman in theaters last month...

Joe shared on social media that beautiful concept art he did in collaboration with Grace Liu: ... "Just an exercise really" ;)

Let me use this occasion to share another beautiful Wonder Woman art Joe did a long time ago.
Personally, I searched that one for such a long time. Of course it's an old and well known art but finding it a decent resolution was impossible until just a few months ago. I was so happy when I found it, I really love that one! :)
And now to finish just a few art updates in better resolution that I was able to find on internet:
Until next time!

Random stuffs for that late update (sorry) and some good things for the next updates ;)

We all know that Joe nearly never does any commission in particular during conventions.
But in some rare occasions he does some exceptions.

So here are a few of them (probably the best ones) Joe did over the years:
You are already probably aware of it but and epic event occurred this month (On the 2nd of May to be precise)
Darksiders 3 logo

After so many years Darksiders 3 has officially been announced by Gunfire Games and THQ Nordic.

If you want to know more about it, IGN did many coverages/updates throughout of this month: And of course the official website of Darksiders has been updated: darksiders.com

But you probably have the question: is Joe Madureira involved in Darksiders3!?
Well as of now it has been officially said that Joe Madureira wasn’t involved in the game.
But, in a recent AMA (see link above), Gunfire Games kept some doubts about it: "While we are close with Joe and he works also with THQ Nordic on a project we can’t confirm anything here."
And that being said, Joe Madureira was contacted to create some brand new sketches of the new Horseman: Fury the rider of the black horse!

OK let’s stop the blabla here are the sketches:
Darksiders 3 Fury concept by Joe Madureira Fury in action
Darksiders 3 Fury concept by Joe Madureira Fury whip attacks

Note: I decided not to include officially those sketches to the site (index page) because I’m expecting to see some better quality versions sooner or later ;)

Now something else related to Battle Chasers NightWar:
As you may know, The Alpha began the 17 Of April.

For that occasion Joe revealed 2 burst arts of the game:
Also a little bit later Airship Syndicate revealed a new element of the game:

the "Thunderdome" arena with a bunch of new wallpapers:
And to celebrate the release of the Alpha I have something great to show!
Many of you just like me were probably waiting for the official Battle Chasers NightWar key art colored by Johannes Helgeson to be released in HD (like the other version colored by Grace Liu)

Well... I was able to find it on the internet! here it is:
Note: this is an update of the previous version from 1920 x 1045px to 4000 x 2185px!

And now to wrap up that update of May I'm very pleased to announced that I’ve recently received the contribution of multiple VIP!
They provided me with some new pieces of art and some better quality versions of those already present on the website!
So stay tuned for the next updates of JoeMadArt.com! ;)

And just to give you an example what about that Battle Chasers comic #1 page11:
Note: I know that one isn common, but looks at the resolution of the inked version! That one was given to me by Tom McWeeney!
... And there are many more! ;)
