Ms Marvel Step 1 by davidyardin Ms Marvel Step 1 by davidyardin
Alright I promised this a little while back so here it is, the step by step process I used for the Ms Marvel piece I did recently.

Step 1. Pencils

I've kind of skipped showing the layout stage of this piece, mainly because I did so many of them and I couldn't be arsed scanning that many pages into my computer. :laughing: Anyway these are the finished pencils for the piece. You'll notice these are a lot looser than the pencils I would usually hand another inker (especially the hair), but obviously because I'm inking myself I can afford to be a bit rougher. You may also notice her head is in a slightly different position to the final piece. Obviously I wasn't really happy with the position it is in here; I usually pick up on these sorts of mistakes earlier (by stepping back from the piece while I'm working on it), but I didn't really notice it until after I had scanned it in on my computer (obviously I wasn't stepping back from the piece as I was working on it :lol:). The face itself was alright, so rather than redraw it, I just repositioned it in photoshop then lightboxed in the correction.

Yeah, another question: How do you draw the way you do? I always liked the superhero type of style, so I was wondering like is there a book I can learn this drawing style from? A tutorial on this or what?

How I draw is the sum of all my influences, and how I see life. Style is not something you really learn from a book or tutorial, you have to develop it yourself. The key to good drawing is to have a solid foundation to your work. Learn the basics of drawing anatomy, structure, proportions, form, light, shadow, perspective, etc. Always reference from real life instead of just other artists' work (although you can glean some useful stuff from other artists it shouldn't be the foundation of your work). Don't worry about style, it will come naturally.

This is neither here nor there, but the upper pec insertion into the delt (shoulder) and the entire arm looks exactly like my own arm.
