Superman #50 Variant Cover Step 1 Lineart

Here's a look at how we made the cover to Superman #50 guest starring Batgirl!

This was done for Midtown Comics and my DC editor was Mark Chiarello!

This is an interesting assignment as it lines up with the Batman #50 Variant so I had to design them to fit together ...

Roughs were drawn at 2 x 3" in my sketchbook using Warm Grey Copics then colored in Photoshop CS3.

and to work on their own.

Now, I was leaving to go to a SCAD Comics Art Forum for a week so I HAD to finish these pencils so Rachel could ink while I was gone because both this and Batman cover were due the following Wednesday. We were really up against on this one..

Pencils drawn in Light Blue and HB lead on 12 x 18 Bristol Board

I actually drew the bulk of the Batman Cover at the same time so it line up correctly (plus I wouldn't have much left to pencil when I got home...)

And now Rachel's inks ---

Since I was out of town while Rachel was inking - she sent me step by step of the inks!

Rachel started with Batgirl.


Rachel inks over my pencils with a Windsor Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable #2 Brush and Higgins Black Magic Ink to ink the covers with.

Moving along...

Boom! Batgirl Done...

Onto Superman

Almost there....

Done until I get home to take a look at it.

I finished up Supes neck, worked on Batgirl's mouth, and moved her left leg back...

Scan into Photoshop - next time-
