2D Artist Magazine Cover by DNA-1 2D Artist Magazine Cover by DNA-1
Starting next month, 2D Artist Magazine will be running the first of three tutorial articles by yours truly, all on the topic of creating comic book cover art with a 'sexy girl' theme. Here's the final art, and over the three issues, I'll get into nitty-gritty detail about how it was created, including all my tools, tricks, Photoshop settings, and step-by-step WIPs.

Here's the release schedule:

Issue 63 (March): Comic Book Penciling Tutorial
Issue 64 (April): Comic Book Inking Tutorial
Issue 65 (May): Digital Coloring Tutorial

All 3 issues collected here:  shop.3dtotal.com/mastering-com…
Or free promo here:  www.3dtotal.com/index_tutorial…

Is it bad that I can pick out where the general make-up of the piece came from, as far as 'how' to get as close as possible to that in CoH?

Lol!

Beautiful work, David :)

Well, we COULD, but I didn't really draw it with COH in mind. We are working on some ideas for new wings though...

I think the cool thing about tutorials is the people coming back and telling you how much it helped them.
definitely going to be looking into these tutes I'm always keen to sponge up some knowledge :)

I've been reading mags like 2D Artist and Imagine FX for a while now, and I've learned a TON of tips that are now part of my everyday workflow. Definitely tried to include as many of those as possible in my articles.

I'd love to subscribe to imagine Fx, very pricey out my way though. every little bit helps when it comes to workflow.

Yup, iFX is a lot. 2D Artist is very similar, but way more affordable.
