I don’t want something realistic; I want something believable.
Could explain what parts of the All-New X-Factor covers you did? Did you draw the whole cover or did you redesign all of the characters' costumes?
i only draw and colour the characters. the concept comes from jared fletcher, with approval from our editor. once they have all that figured out, they just give me the poses and i draw the characters. then i give it back to jared and he does what he does to the cover. all the design and various treatments to the cover is all him.
and no, i didn’t do the designs either. thats all carmine di giandomenico
Basically, Kris takes my crappy last minute cover sketches and turns them into something fantastic. That’s been the most interesting part of the gig so far. Now I know why writers get so excited to see pages come back from the artist. Once he’s done with coloring the figures or cats or jets or whatever that month, I go in and paint the backgrounds and work up all the design. And the last part is when I pick a quote from the script to use on the cover. It’s been a fun collaboration and I like the way they’ve been coming out. I hope everyone likes yellow.
