Legendary Star-Lord #1 Variant Cover Step by Step Part TWO INKS

Here's a look of how we created the Variant Cover to Legendary Star-Lord #1 by Marvel Comics.

The book is out now written by Sam Humphries and drawn by Paco Medina.

Now for part two - the inks by Rachel Dodson…

The final art inked directly over my pencils on 12 x 18 Bristol Board

Rachel uses Windsor Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable #2 Brush and Higgins Black Magic Ink to ink the covers with.

Kitty Pryde...


And last but not least, Star-Lord. The stars in the background were created using Pro White and Windsor Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable #2 Brush.

The foreground objects were inked by Rachel and me (I'm using Pitt F and B pens plus a little Pro White). It's fun having our signature worked into the artwork, this time in the beer pull in the foreground, DODSON'S STELLAR.

Next time - the COLORS!
