Superman 211 Cover Linework

By jimlee00

After the loose gestural figurework and composition is done, I refine and make the hard choice and pick the exact lines which form the silhouettes of the figures and design the background to create an abstract, almost graphical background.

You can see all the various poses I tried out for both characters...there are legs and arms and fists all over the page...erased but you can still make many of them.

Rough sketches are the bomb!

I can draw very similar to this, but then my skills take a dive once I add in all the shading. How do you visualize lighting so well?

Do you do any Cleaning up on the computer afterwards, or just do allot of erasing before you say its finished?
