Wolverine cover by diablo2003 Wolverine cover by diablo2003
This is the cover Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha and Omega #2 for Marvel comics. I've included all the steps that went into making the cover. No Copics on this one , I colored it all in photoshop. Marvel wanted a horror movie feel to go along with the story in the comics so I went with a Shining-Esq piece.

Step 1: Layout for Marvel's approval. They liked it but wanted Wolverine to be leaning farther forward like he's coming toward the viewer more.

Step 2: I pencil the piece working out all the details for the piece. No reference taken for this one, all done out of my head.

Step 3: Color roughs over the pencils so I get an idea of how I will color it in the final piece.

Step 4: I print the pencils out in non-photo blue on my Epson R1800 at 13"X19" on Strathmore bristol board and ink it using a Pentel brush pen and Copic Multiliners

Step 5: I rescan the piece back to my computer and color it in photoshop on my Cintiq 21UX using my original color rough as reference.
I get asked a lot how I scan in such large artwork on a standard scanner. I scan the piece in pieces and put it back together in photoshop.

Hope you dig!

Looks like a nightmare. If you see Wolverine from that angle, you're about to die!

I really appreciate that you break down your techniques, I mostly work in pencil and ink and have been fearing to whole Photoshop thing and really in a stage now where I have to relearn the whole process.

Looks awesome!

So...random question, do you think Wolverine's teeth are adamantium too? Or even if they do fall out would they just grow back?
