Here’s my starting process to laying down color on this Sinestro Sketch Cover. Since the DC Sketch Cover surface takes markers well I’ll use a combination technique of Copic and Liquitex. After the base background is put down, I’ll mask off the logo and Sinestro with tracing paper and painter tape. The star field is achieved with Liquitex Free Style Splatter Brush. After the splatter paint is dry I’ll add the glow to various splatters along with burst to complete the feel of space.
Here is the finished up Superman Red Son Sketch Cover. The artwork was rendered with Copics, Faber-Castell artist pen, uni-ball Signo Gel Pen, and to achieve the heat vision glow I used Liquitex.
Here’s a progress shot 1 of me adding color to this Superman Red Son Sketch Cover. Tried something different with the background this time. I used the Tom Holtz Collection Rays Stencil to help with the background. I like the effect and will try again with a future sketch cover. The coloring is rendered with Copic Markers. For the highlights in the hair I used a uni-ball Signo broad white gel pen.
