Super Dino Cover 5 Process

 Cover process time! The cover for issue 5 needed to represent our heros fight against the giant and evil Mega-Raptor!

This first sketch was OK but, we decided that more of the raptor should be seen and Super Dinosaur himself should be in his battle armor and more prominently displayed.
 Here is the revised sketch. Some color thrown in to help separate the elements.
The first 2 sketches were drawn in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet. Its hard to get much detail with it but very useful for figuring out design and composition stuff. This tighter sketch below was drawn by hand over a printout of the Photoshop sketch, then scanneed back into Photoshop where I could easily add perspective grid lines.

That was then printed out in light blue onto the Image bristol board. With a blue Col-Erase pencil I drew the finish detail and all the background stuff.
Then inked it with a mixture of pens and brush.

And finally scanned back into Photoshop for the coloring.

Sorry things have been dead here for a while. I am have been swamped drawing. But I am back to getting my website current and alive again. Yay!

Things are going well with Super Dinosaur, I'll be putting a bunch of art from that up here. Still working on the gallery page, but  you can check out what's there so far, or go to my DeviantArt page if you want to see more art.

Here are a couple pages from issue 5 (in stores now!). Maximus' finally gets whats coming to him!
