Death of Wolverine #1 Variant Cover Step by Step Part 1 LINEART

This is how we made the variant cover to Death of Wolverine #1 Cover art.

The idea behind this cover was "the women of Wolverine" - which ended up featuring Jean Grey, Storm, Jubilee, Kitty Pryde and Mariko - tried to squeeze in a few more but just too busy for me...

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

After getting appr0val from Marvel Editor George Beliard and Mike Marts I moved on to pencils...

Pencils  drawn in Light Blue and HB lead on 12 x 18 Bristol Board.

Detail of Wolverine.

Rachel Dodson inks

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