Sketch Cover Storm Shadow SOTD by RobertAtkins Sketch Cover Storm Shadow SOTD by RobertAtkins
This was sketched on the black side of the blank variant of StormShadow #1 from Devil's Due a few years back. This was produced before the big blank comic cover craze, and man the paper was glossy as all get out.

You can read about the shenanigans that ensued when I tried to ink this crazy thing here on my blog:

Aww how do you do such great backgrounds?

I generally have a good idea in my head the basic shapes and spaces I want the backgrounds to fill. After laying out a grid or visualizing that grid in my head, I put the shapes of the buildings or environment in accordingly. After that is established, its just about patience and attention to details.

lol, I have a red sonja to do as well, that looks like it's going to be pretty terrible. What pens do you use for those?

I've tried everything from Microns to brush to regular Pilot Rolling Ball pens to even Sharpies-- none are ideal, but Microns put on after the markers work alright, I guess.
