Star Wars: Vader Down #1 CBLDF Variant Cover - Step 1 Lineart

Here's a look at how we created the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Cover for Star Wars: Vader Down #1  out now from Marvel Comics.

My initial sketch was sent to Star Wars Editor Heather Antos at Marvel.

Had a ton of ideas for this - Lucasfilm picked "C".

 The sketches are drawn at 2x3 inches in my sketchbook in pencil and pen and then cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.

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