Amazing Spider-Man #615
Here's the cover to Amazing Spider-Man #615. This one is actually painted in watercolor over inks, so what you're looking at is the original (with some minor Photoshop tweaks).
I scanned the inks just prior to painting, just in case I messed things up.
I penciled the cover on my own paper (as opposed to Marvel board) since I knew I was going to paint over it. I employed the same stock I use for gouache and acrylic, Strathmore 500 Series, 3-ply, vellum surface.
And finally, it all started with a quick digital color study sent to my editor for approval. I did a number of quick comps like this, which I'll eventually share. I did the cover for #616 as well, which I'll post next week.
