Tag Archives: comic book cover
Repurposed an older piece and made something new out of it.
I repurposed a few warm-up sketches (of hands and gals) into a third composition. This adds a new context to an otherwise ordinary image.
Below is my process for putting together a comic book cover, inspired by the Bronze Age Marvel Comics trade dress. Using a custom brush in Manga Studio, I prepped the pencils. Inks were added in Manga Studio as well. Colors were added using Photoshop, after importing the art into a Marvel Comics trade dress template that I made some time ago. And here’s a “distressed” version.
I don’t normally draw Spider-man – not because I hate him as a character or find him uninteresting. No, it’s just all those dang webs that have to be drawn every single time. Drawing Spider-man would be tedious for me. But, I was asked if I could come up with a cover design featuring the web slinger, so I took my best stab at it.
