Star Wars 50 Step by Step Part 1 Pencils

Our variant cover for Star Wars #50 - out now from Marvel Comics - a family portrait!

Check out how we made it.


The cover concept I sent into Marvel Comics and Lucasfilm for approval.

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

I had a pretty idea of what I wanted to with this one so you can so I set up a pretty simply design with just some editorial tweaks for background figures.


Drawn in Light Blue on 12" x 18" Bristol Board 

Quickly roughed in the drawing making sure the composition still help.

I printed out my rough in light blue on the paper to ensure the composition was positioned correctly.

Now that I'm happy with the layout I proceed to penciling - using Staedtler HB lead.

Detail - notice the TRACING PAPER over Leia's face so I don't blur with my hand.

Here I used a Micron Pigma 02 Pen to ink the Tie Fighter

Almost Finished Pencils

And the scan of the pencils....

Next time,
