Infinite Crisis #1 Slumber Party Harley Quinn Variant Cover Step by Step PART THREE Color

      Here's a look behind how the SLUMBER PARTY HARLEY QUINN variant cover of INFINITE CRISIS #1 was created (out NOW from DC Comics).

                                                  And now finally, how I colored this


The first stage of coloring is to have the art "flatted".

Flatting allows me to choose an area to color at any point throughout the coloring process.

At this stage I go and adjust the colors to their medium value or imprimatura - I use this as the starting point.

Knew exactly how I was going to color this so quick stage for me...


My initial rough in of the colors, done in Photoshop CS3 and Wacom Cintiq 13HD. I add darker values first and then the lighter values.


Already happy with how this is going I move right into altering the lineart to color.


Initial coloring pass.

Infinite Crisis #1 Slumber Party Harley Quinn Variant Cover Step by Step PART ONE Pencils


Here's a look behind how the SLUMBER PARTY HARLEY QUINN variant cover of INFINITE CRISIS #1 was created (out NOW from DC Comics).


Slumber Party Harley FYI


First step is to do sketches for approval by DC Comics for the cover. Pretty open for this cover  as it has literally NOTHING to do with the interior - enough freedom to cause problems - however, being Harley I had a number of ideas for it!


The sketches are drawn at 2x3 inches in my sketchbook in pencil and pen and then cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.


I send these in to my Editor Jim Chadwick for approval. 

B was chosen.


My initial rough in of the pencils, drawn in Light Blue and HB lead on 12 x 18 Bristol Board.


Pretty simple cover and I was happy with the concept so I just plugged away from the character back…


Almost finished pencils...


I tweaked Harley's smile a bit more and voila!


Detail.

Next time, Rachel's inks!

Out in the stores this week - X-MEN #16 and INFINITE CRISIS #1 Harley Quinn Variant



X-MEN #16 Cover Step by Step Part ONE - Pencils

Here's a look behind how the cover of X-Men #13 was created (out in stores this week from Marvel Comics - written by Brian Wood with art by Matteo Buffagni).



First step is to do sketches for approval by Marvel Comics for the cover. I was told to do a very Storm-centric cover.


The sketches are drawn at 2x3 inches in my sketchbook in pencil and pen and then cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.


I send these in to my Editor Daniel Ketcham for approval. 

In the meantime, it turns out the new Storm book is being published the same month, so Marvel opts to go with a team shot instead.

C is chosen.




My initial rough in of the pencils, drawn in Light Blue and HB lead on 12 x 18 Bristol Board.


Moved Storm'a pose some more


Refining and finishing the drawings


Almost done but want to use Storms cape as a design element...


So I draw this in Photoshop to play with the shapes



The final pencils

Next time, Rachel's inks!
