About my project:
I started this project with the original intent of submitting this to Robert Goodin’s Covered blog. However, during my illustration process, Robert closed his blog on September 26, 2012. Although Robert and his blog are no longer taking submissions, I’ve decided to dust off this project and carry it through to it’s final art.
This is my complete chronicling of the entire process from the absolute first sketch to my very last final illustration. I’ve started initial sketches on my iPhone in Sketchbook Pro and do the final illustration/inking/coloring on my iPad.
In Phase One, my last Brother Voodoo post, I showed you all the cover I chose to reinterpret, Marvel Comics’ Strange Tales #169 Featuring the supernatural superhero, Brother Voodoo.
My initial illustration was a simple body shape that served as a way to acclimate myself to the project and to work out work out the pose. Now that I have an idea for the body, here goes the head and face.
You can see in these pics that the face is much more detailed than the body, however, it’s still a rough foundation and not meant to be close to the final art work.
Zooming in on the sketch, you get the fine details of his face drawn. I’ll eventually come back to the body and add similar details. The zoomed in face is blurry because Sketchbook Pro is a raster (or bitmap) style illustration app. My preferred illustration format is vector; I’ll be using Adode Ideas (A vector illustration app) with my stylus to create hand illustrated and hand inked vector artwork.
Stay tuned for MORE updates on my reinterpretation cover!!
