CIVIL WAR II #1 Variant Cover Step by Step Part 1 Line Art

So Axel Alonso offered me  cover I couldn't say no to - the Team Captain Marvel Hip Hop Variant Cover to Marvel Comics big summer event - Civil War II.

So the idea behind this one was to do something inspired by the Ultramagnetic MC's cover.

Cover Sketch

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

Initial Rough in 

Light Blue Col Erase Pencil
Staedtler HB Lead/Holder

12 x 18 Bristol Board

Next stage of finishes

Final Pencils

Gave She-Hulk more "back of her head"...


She Hulk Detail

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.

Captain Marvel Detail

Great variety of lines created just with the brush!

Spider-Man Detail

Love how Rachel cross hatches - I give her tons to do because she excels at it!

Ok, next time - colors!
