Rachel Dodson and I did the variant cover for Spider-Gwen #14.
Out now from Marvel Comics!
Here's the Part 1 of the Step by Step of how we made the cover art!
My initial sketches for the cover submitted to Marvel. First time I've ever drawn Spider-Gwen professionally ... looked forward to this one!
Roughs were drawn at 2" x 3" in my sketchbook using Warm Grey Copics then colored in Photoshop CS3.
Initial Rough In
Just quickly drawn in with a Col Erase Light Blue Pencil.
Drawn in and HB lead on 12" x 18" Bristol Board .
Really happy with Gwen, so went right into finishes.
Nailing down Spidey's exact positioning. He's such a "flexible" character that you can really put him into almost any position.
Smartest thing to do at this point is go back to my initial sketch and try to mimic that.
Love drawing Spidey's facial anatomy!
Nailing down the 3 Point Perspective Grid here for New York City.
Further finishes on the parts of Spidey I'm happy with.
Just about done - finishing up background.
And the final pencils.
I knew I wanted to color the background details, so I saved that for myself to do instead of just "busy-ing" up my pencils :-)
Next time, Rachel's inks in
