X-Men Legacy 266 cover step by step by diablo2003 X-Men Legacy 266 cover step by step by diablo2003
Cover for X-Men Legacy #266 for Marvel Comics. To the left is the 5 layouts I sent to Marvel so they could choose which one they liked best. To the right is the pencils I did digitally on my Cintiq in photoshop and the inks which were done traditionally on Bristol board with a Pentel brush pen and Copic Multiliners. The final cover was colored in photoshop CS2

Hope you dig!
-Mark

Nothing is really the norm. I do as many as it takes to get a good design that Marvel likes. For the cover I'm working on right now I did 10 layouts=)

for someone like rogue. how many shades of color do you like to use. i find 4 works well 3 seems too little and 5 is overkill
Reply
:icondiablo2003:
diablo2003 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
I usually go with 4 though 5 can be used if there is a multiple light source. My 4 are a midtone, shadow, light, and a much lighter tone for the harsh highlights.

I usually find areas like the bridge of the nose and cheekbone are not very fleshy and reflect the most light. I usually end up using almost pure white. The other areas end up being shades of the midtones which I use 4 distinct colors. Do you prefer airbrushing or using gradient tool?

great looking cover, SHE-HULK is such an underused/under-rated character.

good match up with ROGUE too.

Love this. Take what you love and what inspires you and put your own spin on it. The Adam Hughes influence is there but it's definitely still your "style"!

The tension and emotion is shown best in this choice. I also like the correction to Rouges hand in the final version, it reads better. This cover definitely makes me want to read this book to find out what happens!
