Sketch Covers 1 Thru 3 by ChristopherStevens Sketch Covers 1 Thru 3 by ChristopherStevens
I finally tried doing some sketch covers. Im glad I took a crack at them, but I think I'll stick to traditional surfaces.

All done using the tools listed on the home page.

Thanks for looking.

That Thanos sketch is perfect; if that was a piece of original art for a real cover I'd probably spend a lot of money in owning it.

technically it is a piece of original art for a "real cover".
That would be a 1-of-1 (back)cover for X-Men #1. Unless the artist re-draws the image lol But even then, it would be unique as it wouldn't be a copy.

Love the Thanos! He has just the right amount of "maniacal" on his face.

These all turned out great Chris! Actually they turned out spectacular; considering how the cover paper won't hold traditional media well. I'm sure you had a interesting challenge ( as I did ) not smudging, and waiting for the paint to dry.:)

ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013
Thanks. Yeah, the markers sit pretty high on the surface of this paper, so blending is a pain and can't be done the way I want to. Painting was tough too, but it was a little easier working around that than it was the markers heh.

That's interesting Chris. I thought it would be the other way around; I thought the markers would be a bit easier to blend. Thanks.
I found when I did a cove with ink, that the ink would lift right off. So I had to be very careful not to touch the ink on the cover for more than a week before I could even touch it.

Great work. :)

I really admire your work *__* Though I'd say that woman's corset is low enough on the left that her nipple should be showing, and the guy on the right, his ribs look odd :0 But otherwise, very cool!

I'm always impressed out how the brain will read just the differences between the warm and cool grays. Some you would swear have more color.
