I'm Baaack. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles premieres on Fox this Sunday Jan 13 8/7C and Monday Jan 14 9/8C.

Anyone remember Alex Ross' work on that early Terminator Burning Earth (Now Comics) book from 1990? Here are some of his painted covers as shown on Brings back a lot of memories when that book hit the shelf and especially since the movie was still cult cool back then, and got people thinking about Terminator again. Alex Ross was just starting out then and hadn't completely perfected his painted realistic people look yet. You could see the differences from now and then. He has some extremely detailed painted pieces. I can't think of any other painters that can paint with as much realism. Mike Mayhew is also a very good realism painter, esp his work on Vampirella turned a lot of heads. Ross and Mayhew artwork looks even better up close and in person. The details just drip off the page.

Speaking of turning heads... pictured here is stunning actress Summer Glau who plays Cameron Phillips, in the new Terminator series. I can't wait to check out the premiere.
