Wolverine costume variant cover is done. After all the prep work and getting up to speed it is finally away to Marvel. I had documented the steps as I was going. Check them out in ye olde blog, Tirade. It was a blast making and I learned a lot. Hope I get to do another. Check out the posts below:
Logan Study. Got a gig to do a cover for Ye Olde Marvel! They gave me a long lead time because, well, I’m slow. And there’s the day job. But I’ve been a big fan of the old gumshoe paperback covers by Robert McGinnis, Mitchell Hooks and Robert Maguire since my Batman Animated series days when I’d follow Bruce Timm into used bookstores as he collected Carter Brown paperbacks. Been meaning to test if my fascination translates into a real cover.
I know from experience that my excitement to get going can be dangerous. It can mask how unprepared I am. If you’re not painting everyday you’re in for a lot of trouble. I needed the time to limber up and get my research done for all aspects of the job. This image is an attempt to keep my mind on the game.
Past Auction Art. This one was for our collective story crews at Pixar. We pulled in a whopping amount for charity and to create a common area for all story folks in our very own in-house bar. Finally about to christen the bar soon. Check out the original post in Tirade with some making of photos.
Study in Red & Black. Did this a while back and stumbled onto it again. Gouache and watercolor.
