So, here's the final art - this was done on a Mac Pro, using Photoshop CS3 and a Wacom Intuos Graphics Tablet (6 x 8"). This issue ships in December.

Uncanny X-Men #514 page 9 Step by Step

This is a pretty straightforward talking page with the focus on Cyclops and Pixie - the trick was creating a page showing all the numerous X-Men and not spending forever drawing them all - as we only needed to know that they were in the scene not the focus.

The bikes were fun to draw - I used a version of the bikes I drew the X-Men drawing in one panel of Uncanny X-Men 500.

Uncanny X-Men #514 page 2 Step by Step

OK, so here is the Matt Fraction page description and my little thumbnail sketch of the page. I had a pretty good idea of what this page would look like based on the description and so stuck pretty close to my initial sketch.

So I went through and drew all the figures first with the perspectives roughed in and then finished up the backgrounds last.

I had to draw Psylocke in a new "X-Men" wetsuit. After I drew her in the pencil stage with an open leg suit - I decided if she was going to be in the SF Bay she would need a full body suit so I added that before Rachel inked the page.
