Uncanny X-Men 504 Cover Detail by TerryDodson Uncanny X-Men 504 Cover Detail by TerryDodson
A Josephine Baker inspired Mohawk Era Storm, the British (and Original) Psylocke, a Clara Bow inspired Emma Frost and Rogue as a Bellhop!

Since a lot of you are enjoying this cover, I'd thought I post up a more detailed view of some it. I did a lot of changes between the pencil stage and the final color stage - including redraws of eyes and mouths - just subtle little stuff - on my lineart layer in Photoshop.

Also, you can see how much of the lineart I change in color as well, really helps add another layer of depth and is my favorite thing in Photoshop! A lot of the time I start changing the lineart color before I've barely begun coloring the piece.

Colored in Photoshop CS3 with a Wacom Intuos Graphics Tablet.

Fantastic - I will echo what others have said and make a point of the skillful and beautiful rendering. As you yourself have noted the subtly is what makes this collage. There is a deceptive simplicity to it. Nice work

Truly a quartet of lovely ladies, gorgeously rendered. It's been so long since I've seen the original Psylocke I had forgotten what she looked like. Thank you so much for the beautiful reminder - and for the saucy Rogue as well!
