What If cover full spread by ChristopherStevens What If cover full spread by ChristopherStevens
This was a big one..I guess that's obvious, but I mean for me personally. It's always a big deal to me to be a Marvel cover artist and a pleasure to work on something that's going to be on the front of a Marvel book. I'm a Marvel kid, so it's still a nerdy dream. I feel unworthy, but I mean that in a good way. When I read the description for this I was intimidated and thrilled at the same time. Five connected covers? Avengers? Ultron? A new What If series? Yes, please. Laying out something like this is a bit of a nightmare and I'm still not crazy about the flow here and there, but I'm proud of this one. 

Prismacolor and Copics with watercolor on vellum bristol board

Reminds me of a series of connected covers Travis Charest did a few years ago for Wildstorm.
You did very well, sir !! :)

Thanks, Tom. It's pretty amazing to think I not only draw stuff for Marvel, but I get to do covers too. I basically have the same job that Jack Kirby and John Buscema had!

That is amazing work! Definitely one of your strongest pieces, and you can see the fanboy oozing out of the scenes. And by that I mean you can feel the respect for these characters. Love your use of warm and cool tones, and details are wonderful to stare at. Your Ultron is fearsome!

Thanks. Yeah, this was a great opportunity for a fan to do. Staple Marvel characters in their classic gear fighting a major villain in piles of rubble. It's what I do hehe.

Thank you:). This is probably a one time shot for Pym...at least his version of him as the whole image is something of a flashback to the 60's.

oh too bad, he looks so good when you draw him. it's true they decided to get rid of him, what a shame, he actually was a really nice character. but if by any means, you end up doing a fanart, I'd love to see him more, :3

This surpasses a large amount of covers from Marvel and DC. Jim Lee's covers for X-Men pale in comparison. You are about to become a superstar.

Seriously, you captured who Ultron was and is. Marvel needs to make you a regular cover artist. If I had the money, I would commission the Shi'ar Imperial Guard.
