Batman Rebirth #1 Step by Step Part 1 Pencils

  Batman Rebirth #1 Variant Cover

Our cover art for Midtown Comics Batman Rebirth #1- a full color and black and version are available here-

And here's Part 1 of the Step by Step of how we made the art!

I was given the concept of Batman catching Catwoman stealing Jewels, etc with the emphasis on Catwoman. The Client that I did this for - Midtown Comics - really liked my Amazing Spider-Man #1 Variant I did -

and so B was picked as it mimicked that pretty well.

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

Initial Rough 

Drawn in Light Blue and HB lead on 12" x 18" Bristol Board  with a blue line of the sketch printed out beneath as the composition was right on!


Changed up Catwoman's lower body

Tightening up upper body

Revised lower body and drawing Batman


Me detailing face and jewels...

Using the Catwoman statue to nail down the placement of the goggles on Catwoman's forehead!

Scanned in to Photoshop to double-check drawing

Next stage of finishes on Catwoman and roughing in the background


Finishing background

You can see my blue lines indicating the 3 Point Perspective

Final Pencils

Next time inks with time-lapse video of Rachel inking - be warned it's crazy!
