X-MEN #13 Cover - Making of 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 Clay Mann).

The first step is to send in cover sketches to X-Men Editor Jeanine Schaeffer. The idea was to have Jubilee protecting SHOGO. 

Drawn at 2x3 inches in my sketchbook in pencil and pen and then cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.

It was decided to zoom in really tight and "E" was picked.

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

Did some corrections digitally on the figure as my drawing looked a little off and sometimes I can see the errors better on the computer.

Implementing those corrections on the actual artwork.

The final pencils...
