Illegitimates #2 cover demo

 I did this sketch for the cover, inspired by a movie poster I had remembered. I produced a movie poster type-graphic for the first issue, and wanted to try the same approach here. I was very happy that the creators liked this sketch, because I was happy with it myself. I sketched this with markers on paper, then added tones in photoshop, because I wanted the silhouette shape to read clearly.
 Here is the line art, done in quill pen, some brush and Pelikan drawing ink.

Finally, I scanned and opened it in Photoshop, for coloring. Being pretty new to computer painting, I spent a few days on this stage. I put more rendering into the small details than I needed, but have a hard time with the zoom view. My palette was made up of k-free colors, because I like the clean and bright aspect of colors without grey in the mix. And the black line art pops more this way.

Illegitimates#2 ships January 15th from IDW. Ask for this variant cover.

Very cool Jerry! Reminds me of those late 60's Jim Steranko covers & splash pages. That were in Nick Fury agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. & Capt.America.
