X-Factor 228 by davidyardin X-Factor 228 by davidyardin
Again I tried to go for something a little different with this cover. I wanted to keep it more graphic this time around; I didn't want to do lots of needless rendering. I wanted to keep it bold, and I'm hoping it stand out on the shelves.

Pencils, inks, and colours, all by me.

X-FACTOR #228
Written by Peter David
Penciled by Leonard Kirk
Cover by David Yardin

X-MEN REGENESIS


Still reeling from the shocking death of one of their own, how can the X-Factor team possibly take down the one responsible
-- the deadly Bloodbath? Then, in issue 229: Layla Miller. Jamie Madrox. Husband and wife. Lying murdered in their honeymoon suite. The moment you thought would never come is here, and not only are you a witness to it, but so is Jamie Madrox himself. We feel safe in saying that this is X-Factor as you've never seen them before in the first part of what has to be the trippiest arc in the history of Marvel.
32 PGS. (each)/Rated T+ …$2.99 (each)

This is a beautifully rendered piece.
I really like all the subtle lines you've included, especially when depicting the nose and philtrum.

You're welcome, David! Your covers are always beautiful but this one is amazing! Yes, I'll be in 229 and 230 and so on. Cannot wait to see the cover for issue 230! :9

There was a lot of great character stuff in #230. I tried to capture as much as I could on the cover, since I couldn't do the spoiler at the end, or the other thing going on. I'm looking forward to what you do inside the book. ;)

Great cover -- very striking. It has a Ryan Sook look to it, and I mean that as a high compliment. I'm really digging the contrasts going on in the piece.

Can't say I was going for Sook, but I love his art so thanks. I hope the contrast makes it pop on the shelves.
