Artyom Trakhanov draws advanced explorers fighting a group of cavemen, in a scene from the comic UNDERTOW
Artyom Trakhanov draws explorers fighting cavemen.
This is a spread from a comic series called UNDERTOW (written by Steve Orlando, drawn by myself and published by Image Comics). UNDERTOW is a story about a modern water-breathing Atlantis civilisation, and a group of rebel scientists, warriors and artists escaping from its cruel regime. Those people search for the new life for their group, and even go to the forbidden Dry Land to discover how to breathe air and set up a colony.
In essence, it’s a space exploration story in reverse, with the group of underwater creatures in their bulky landsuits, filled with water, exploring a completely alien world that’s teaming with humans from the Stone Age and dangerous creatures. The story continuously gives me the chances to draw weird and gritty stuff. This piece from the third issue of our series (out now), for example, shows an ambush carried out by the ravenous cavemen, as they attack our Atlantean explorers at dawn.
