Here's the Inhumans Vs X-Men #6 Variant Cover featuring everyone's favorite Mohawked Goddess, Ororo Munroe ..... STORM!
By Rachel Dodson and Me.
Out now from Marvel Comics.
Now for Part 1 of the Step by Step making of the cover art -
The cover concept I sent into Marvel Comics Editors Wil Moss and Daniel Ketchum for approval.
Roughs were drawn at 2" x 3" in my sketchbook using Warm Grey Copics then colored in Photoshop CS3.
Obviously, that costume wasn't correct, which was good news...
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.
Really wanted regal, godly, powerful...
I was happy with pose and composition so I went right into nailing down Storm's face.
With her face correct, I went straight into finishing out the anatomy of the body and new costume details.
Really happy with Storm's face - enough of the "exotic" feel with crazy eyebrows :-)
Decided to change her hands - make them a little more "aggressive"
Final rendering for lightning and FX
Couple of tweaks on facial anatomy...
And the scan of the pencils....
