Death of Wolverine #1 Variant Cover Step by Step Part 2 COLOR

This is how we made the variant cover to Death of Wolverine #1 Cover art.

And so the colors…

I use  Photoshop CS3 and a Wacom Cintiq 13HD to color with.

Initial rough in 
of the colors - getting the midtone values/colors of the characters in and the Gradient Tool for the Background

Just using a big pencil and a little lasso and gradient to move to the next layer of color.

As I get closer to getting the coloring where I want it - I begin converting the lineart to color lines.

Final touches include more texture into the Background face.

Detail of Jubilee

Detail of Storm, Wolverine and Jean Grey
