A few friends encouraged me to embraced my childhood love of superheroes & do a sketch cover.
But who can be bothered to just draw a pose? I mean, maybe I could bring myself to submit to the drudgery, but only with many beers before, during & afterwards.
I learned a little something about Marvel’s sketch cover comics. The past few months have seen me eschew white-out in favour of an artist’s knife. Peeling away a layer of Bristol board to make corrections isn’t perfect (nothing is), but pigment doesn’t soak into white-out–before it dries, I smear it more often than not when inking a strip–and white-out doesn’t soak into the paper anyway.
But sketch cover illustration paper doesn’t peel worth a damn, & correction fluid works like a dream (nice & smooth, though pigment still smears if I’m not careful). I’m glad to learn this the first time out, but it would have been useful information going in.
