RED ONE #1 Shipping in March 2015 from IMAGE COMICS

My creator owned book, RED ONE, is shipping in March from IMAGE COMICS-


RED ONE

What if happens when America's Greatest Hero ... is actually a Russian Spy?

It's 1977, the height of the Cold War between USSR and US, and the Kremlin has a plan to win the war against Uncle Sam, propaganda!

Vera Yelnikov is an elite agent in the Soviet Army during the Cold War - she IS the atomic bomb! Vera is sent to Los Angeles by her bosses at the Kremlin. Her mission? Become a true "American superhero", to be the spearhead of a propaganda operation of communist values in the land of Uncle Sam and fight against the "Carpenter", a fascist serial killer who blames America's ills on liberals. Vera is clumsy and ignorant of the customs of "the American way of life". Her secret identity in the US is Alabama Jones,  and she must find a day job to cover her secret identity ... a job that allows her to blend in and meet the aspirations of the Kremlin when the need arises as - RED ONE! 

Xavier Dorison (Long John Silver, The Third Testament) and Terry and Rachel Dodson(Star Wars: Princess Leia, Uncanny X-Men, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man and Harley Quinn) launch a sexy and funky new superhero story, straight out of a Tarantino film.

Ok, this is a step by step look at how Rachel Dodson inked our Bonne Annee Card art.

Rachel likes to start with the main face/s.


Moving on to the hair and hood


On to the horse and bridle

Rachel inks using Windsor Newtown Series 7 #2 Kolinsky Sable Brush and Deleter Black 4 Ink.

BONNE ANNEE Step by Step Part 1 Pencils

Here's a look behind how we made our Holiday Card for this year.


Original art ending up being humongous. I started it out on 13" x 19" Strathmore 500 2 Ply Bristol board but I ended up having to add more paper so the final art is 20 x 19 inch.


Drawing the art with Col Erase Light Blue Pencil and Staedtler HB Lead.


Decided to change the pose slightly so the left hand was feeding the apple to the horse.


Detail


And brought the main character's legs closer together as I remembered I was drawing a dress not jodhpurs


Detail


Refining the main character


Detail


Wanted to nail down the dress and cape with messing up the drawing so did it on tracing paper so I could be nice and loose...


Traced off the dress and cape and began adding little details - necklace, stars belt etc.


Detail


Finish the dresh and the the ground the horse is standing on.


Finishing up the horse - which way is the wind blowing, btw?


Detail


The final pencil art before Rachel inks it ...

Up next, inks!
