5 Ronin Psylocke Cover Process

5 Ronin Psylocke is #4 issue in a five-issue weekly-shipping limited series, written by Peter Milligan and drawn by Goran Parlov, out in March from Marvel.

Editor Sebastian Giner asked for this: "Maybe her kimono is slipping off her shoulders, revealing her tattooed back. A sensual and sexy cover, but there's also something very dangerous about her."

All I can say about this cover is that much probably is my favorite one.

This is final cover sketch.

Main picture's whased inks (left). Pencil for aditional figure lines and mask, and inks for some kind of nature Sumie paints (right).



Final art in Photoshop and final design with texts and logos:

David,

These covers are totally sweet! Your technique on these is outstanding! I loved to see the stages and the final PS composition. Are there any interviews out there (that I can read) where you discuss you art in a fuller manor? Keep the blog going!

Not sure if there's any right now.
There are some other examples in this blog, but I suppose you obviously have seen them, heh.

Your works are fascinating,i was first introduced and recommended by the guy at Iron Fist fan blog to read Immortal Iron Fist omnibus. I must say is one of the best artworks and i am a big fan now. Is there any new series or self owned book you are working on apart from covers?

I picked up the comic at my Local comic shop, just on the cover. And was trying to see if I could find some art for an arcade stick I was making from this comic and stumbled upon this site. Just gotta say the cover was awesome. Good job!
