just got my toner grayscale marker set from copic. testing it out.

paper sucks ass so I couldn't do the rendering style that I did for Fred Hausen (6 colored pieces). so rough watercolor style it is.

no refs, but been drawing wolverine all my adult life so I know him pretty well.

Sketchbook pro Copic edition has a full palette of colors that mimic real markers.

AHHH so inspiring!!! Especially sketchy stuff like this.
Every time I struggle with my stuff, I just take a look at your art and I'm pumped to go on.
I know, i know... Fanboy bla bla :D

I have to say you do one of my favorite renderings of Wolverine. I also loved your version of Wonder Man in the Avengers :D

This came out great! Lately I've only done pencil shading on these covers. I hate using markers and inks on them

Awesome! This may sound like a dick thing to say, but is there any one out there who needs a reference to draw Wolverine?
leinilyu's avatar
good point, but I was referring to lighting, rendering and shadows. I've been practicing it a lot lately. need to up my game on that.

I love your work man. In general? Or with those materials, I think you do a great job on lighting, rendering and shadows! Any way, thanks for the clarification!
