Go, Go, Marvel Girl!
Recently, I decided I wanted to draw Jean Grey: Marvel Girl in her 1960′s X-Men costume.
There’s something about costumes from the 1960′s, especially for the ladies. It’s essentially a mini dress, with matching gloves, boots and a mask that almost becomes a headdress.
I like how simple and fun those costumes were. Completely non-functional, sure. But why get into all of that.
This piece was pencilled, then inked with Pigma Micron markers and a new marker I got at San Diego Comic-Con. It’s called an IDenti Pen Dual (with fine and extra fine tips) from Sakura Color Products. A representative came by my table at Artist Alley and gave me a sample. Glad they did. They sold me on this product! I like how the tips take to the paper. Nice, even saturation of ink but very minimal bleeding (if any).
