Rachel Dodson Inking the X-MEN 9 Cover Art

Here's a little more detailed look behind creating the lineart for the cover of X-MEN #9 was created (out in stores now from MARVEL COMICS - written by Brian Wood with art by me, Rachel Dodson, Jason Keith), with more emphasis on Rachel's inks.

My  pencils, drawn in Light Blue and HB lead on 12 x 18 Bristol Board.

Detail of my pencils…

Rachel inks with a Windsor Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable #2 Brush and Higgins Black Magic ink, plus a little tech pen and croquille for the straight lines.

And the cleaned up (via Photoshop) ready to color art.
