|Wolverine #5.1 Cover. 2010. Ink with digital color on bristol board, 11 x 17".|
Marvel has a new promotion called "Point One" in which select titles will boast an extra issue tailored toward new readers. When they asked me to provide the cover for Wolverine, I was more than happy to oblige. The cover had a tight deadline, so I had to keep things fairly simple, but the graphic approach probably helped the composition in the end. I'll detail the full process in a later post, but the background was painted separately (and at a smaller size), then merged in Photoshop.
