The Ms. Marvelous '60s
This is part of Marvel's "decades" variant covers. My editor gave me the parameters: Ms. Marvel, '60s, and "album cover-esque." I was just happy that I finally got to paint some ladies (and from one of my favorite periods in illustration, no less).
The final painting is gouache and acrylic on 11" x 17" bristol board. I painted it with my usual approach, the stages of which can be seen below.

(I slightly toned the paper so I could get that painted-white-background look in the final.)
