Iron Man commissioned sketch
Cool, warm and neutral gray markers.
I will forever hate Marvel blanks. I will burn the next Marvel blank cover I see. Or put it in a recycling process hoping it would be a better paper stock someday.
Also, I saw the other trade design for the non-blank cover and it has a better title/logo placement that is MORE SUITABLE for blank covers. Then, for some genius reason, they used this design with about only 65% of drawing space. What gives?
I am angry at your design director/publication designer, Marvel.
