Star Wars 21 Cover Step by Step Part 1 Line Art

So, here's a look at how I made the Star Wars #21 Mile High Comics Tie Fighter Pilot Variant!

Get it here from MILE HIGH COMICS

First step is the sketch

The cover concepts I sent into Marvel Comics Editors Heather Antos and Jordan White and Lucasfilm for approval.

Roughs were drawn at 2" x 3" in my sketchbook using Warm Grey Copics then colored in Photoshop CS3.

Ok, this thing had to be done QUICK so inked this myself - meaning I roughed it in quickly then basically drew in ink.

See rough - using Pitt Pens S and Micron 03 

Knew I needed to nail the helmet and then could "cruise" from there...

Now, I don't recommend working this way but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

Used a Pitt B for the main figure inking plus the Pitt F

Micron 03 for background


Starting on Tie Fighters with Micron 03 and 08

Drawing Tie Fighters with a Pigma Micron 08 Pen

Detailing the Tie Fighters with a Pitt S Pen

I brought in my ace reliever, Rachel Dodson, to fill in the blacks using her brush - looks so nice!

Erased and sent in for initial approval

Final Line Art
Next time - colors...
