Sweet!  There's a lot of his artwork at https://retrographicbooks.com/about-tomdubois.

I.. don't think that is it. The image I remember was done entirely by DuBois.

I was replying to Freak.  Dunno which image you were looking for, but I bet you could find it at the link above.

I love Tom DuBois's art.  I talked with some dude at a game convention a few years back.  He claimed to be Tom's agent, and he said Tom was working on collecting his work so that he could compile it into an art book.  Now that it's a few years later and nothing else has come of it, I wonder if he was legit.

I did buy this shitty-quality-but-still-cool print of the Dracula's Curse cover art from the guy.  Looks alright in my game room.

That's gotta be the same dude who posted on this board saying he knew who the artist was but wouldn't reveal it. (He did the same at a popular TMNT board.) Said he was in the plans of doing an artbook but nothing's come of it. Runs the "official" duBois Twitter account, too, and I think might've been in the My Life in Gaming mini-documentary briefly. Apparently he's duBois' friend now and it's cool we got to know the elusive artist after all this time, but it's still a weird situation and it's hee-larious that shitty low-quality art prints are being sold. Honestly, duBois' work deserves better.

But, he's doing some sweet LRG commissions now so that's good. I love all the attention he's been getting and all the new art that's resulted from it. I've thought for a while that his "agent" wanted to buy up all the original art before doing the big reveal, otherwise others may have swooped in to buy some of it for themselves.

Yep, I know. Sorry for the confusion.

As for the image I was thinking of, I didn't find it. Then again it's been over twenty-five years since I last saw it so who knows. That website however is loaded with awesome images! There are some that I didn't think he actually did  :o  8)

I'm a little surprised to see TMNT II: The Arcade Game on NES there. I always figured that was done by Steve Lavigne and Ryan Brown, since it closely resembles their style, but something always felt different about the poses and sense of action. DuBois' stuff has a lot of movement in it with incredible line of action, so it actually makes sense that he illustrated it.

It's fun seeing the Sparkster design sketches. I think he said that was the only time he had a hand in actually designing a character for Konami.

Edit: I asked about the TMNT2 box art and was told duBois painted the brick background, and likely the other BGs for that promo art but not the Turtles. So those may still be drawn by Mirage Studios' Lavigne/Brown. You can usually tell their work by the way they draw their heads and knuckles.
