Leia Sketch Cover Step by Step

A look at how I made this Princess Leia Sketch Cover for  a New York Comic Con fan.

So this is drawn on a blank Star Wars #1 Cover.

I rough in the drawing quickly with a Col Erase Scarlet Red Pencil.

Next, I rough in the initial values from light to dark using Copic Warm Grey Markers 1, 2, and 3.

I like this seat of the pants style of drawing - very much like painting!

Kinda a mess, but that's what I need to start finding the line using a Micron Pigma 02 Black Pen.

Continuing with the line art.

Next, I start using the Copic Warm Grey 4 and 5 to find the darker values.

Finally, I use a Pitt S and F Black Pen to nail down the final drawing plus a Copic Warm Grey 6 for the final darks and a White pen for highlights on the metals, eyes, lips, and nose.

May the force be with you!
