Guardians of the Galaxy 12 by PaulRenaud Guardians of the Galaxy 12 by PaulRenaud
This is the cover for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy #12.

I was asked to redesign Quasar in a more gothic fashion.
I had a lot of fun designing the new chest emblem (and tried to somehow make it a variation of Captain Marvel's chest star since she's his daughter).

The piece was drawn with pencil, and digitally painted.

I'm not a fan of the character, but this is quite possibly one of my favorite GotG covers!

I really like this series and I love this cover. Her new costune is amazing and even though it's an homage to her dead father's costume it's still unique and stands out as being her own.

Also, you can't go wrong with Goth chicks ;)

No problem! I'm actually glad she's gotten away from the whole Captain Marvel/Quasar roles she was in. I think now with the new costume and powers she'll develop better into a unique character and not just tbe the daughter of Captain Marvel.

Amazing work on the Quasar redesign, Paul. You're so lucky to get to do something fun like that! I really enjoyed getting to see these covers--It looks like you had a lot of fun working on them, and you made some challenging characters like Blastaar and Gladiator look really cool. As always, I also really admire your color work and dig what you bring to these covers in the colors. Great work, brother!

Can't help but be reminded of Captain Harlock.
Not a bad thing at all, mind you...

Hah! That's right. The cape, the sword and skull emblem...and the hair in the wind. I see that now :)

In France Captain Harlock was called Albator.

Great design man!
Changing the Capitain Marvel star for the skull in the sword and in her chest was brillant.
Love the withe light meke her pop from the background.

There´s a chess horse and a tower in the back?
