Loki AoA 7. RED SKULL

It doesn’t get more Red Skully than this.

Once I knew which elements were needed for the design, I put forward a few layout ideas – as seen below…Screen shot 2014-06-18 at 14.08.59Screen shot 2014-06-18 at 14.09.19Marvel went for this layout.

I wanted to show more of Red Skulls face in the final art, of course. That rictus grin is too good to lose.

And I knew I wanted a flatter, more illustrative approach to this cover, so I tried to keep it minimal and as tasteful as a giant, grinning, red skull will allow.

Panel Crops…

I can’t give too much away with Original Sin: Thor/Loki so posting pages is difficult… but here’s a teeny panel crop of two guys with a movie to plug.

Original Sin #5.1

Original Sin: Tenth Realm or Original Sin 5.1/Thor & Loki has landed and King Loki’s up to his old tricks.

THOR VS KIRBY COLLAGE

Thor fights the Technocracy and it was Al Ewing’s great idea to have this done in a ol’ Kirby style of photos mixed with line art. Rather than do it all in Photoshop I found pieces I liked and then printed them out so the collage is real. I think it made a difference to how the thing felt in the end.

AVENGERS VS X-MEN

A cover riffing on the classic X-Men #142 cover. I wanted to have Black Widow more proactive than sleepy Storm from the original. Here’s the process from the classic Terry Austin cover to my Rough, Inks and Colours. I loved doing the head box. I wish they’d bring those back.
