Star Wars #16 Step by Step Part 1 Lineart


How we made the Star Wars #16 cover - out now from Marvel Comics!


Part 1 Lineart

So the first thing to do is come up with a cover sketch. Leia guarding Stormtroopers given to me by my Marvel Editors Jordan White and Heather Antos - pretty simple!

Leia guarding Stormtroopers given to me by my Marvel Editors Jordan White adn Heather Antos - pretty simple!

Sketch was approved as is!

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