Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Aliens - Sagittarians


Here is the original entry for the Alien Race: Sagittarians to the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe".

And here is my entry to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Redux.  

Apparently, the Sagittarians have a mustache.

STEP ONE:  I used a blue-lead pencil to sketch out the entry for Sagittarians.  For some reason, since they did have a mustache prominently featured, I sort of pictured them as vaguely steampunk big game hunters with a retro glass helmet in lieu of a British pith helmet.  I'm not sure why, but it amused me to some degree.

STEP TWO:  Once the pencils were scanned in, I inked them digitally with a 5pt. hard brush in Photoshop.  I decided to keep the drawing simple and would let the color do the shading, rather than the line work.

STEP THREE:  I created a MULTIPLY Layer and laid in flat colors, then choose lighter/darker versions of that color for highlights/shading.

This was done with blue-pencil on 8-1/2" x 11" paper and then digitally inked and colored in Photoshop.
