Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 326

MYTHOS: X-MEN. 2004. Oil on masonite, 16 × 24″.

Way back in November 2004, my friend and fellow illustrator, Katherine Roy, was visiting NYC and stopped by my Brooklyn apartment. I hadn't even started working on Mythos: X-Men, but I knew roughly what the cover was going to look like.

I asked her to strike a number of different poses so that I'd have some options once I started painting. The final doesn't quite follow the reference (and it pains me now to look at my drawing skills) but it got the job done.

Be sure to check out Katherine's work at her website.

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 325

BETTY & VERONICA #3 Variant Cover. 2016.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

I thought this cover had already been published, but now I think it might not be out until next year. Either way, here's the process behind the art. As you can see in the pic below, I cheated a bit on the pencils (but gave my Dad no such shortcuts).

Black Panther No. 9-12 Variant Covers

BLACK PANTHER #12 Variant Cover. 2016. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera)
on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

This series of covers was released over the holiday weekend, so here are all 4 collected in one post. They are all variants (meaning they'll be harder to find) that connect seamlessly (though the 9 and 10 are earlier versions that don't match). This was a great title to be a part of and I encourage everyone to pick it up! I'll post the full process once published — the first hits shelves December 21.
