I kept busy over the holidays with this X-men: Schism #1 sketch cover. This time around, I went old school, with Wolverine fighting the alien Brood. I loved the Brood back when they first appeared, as designed and drawn by Dave Cockrum (and, later, Paul Smith). Those were some fun stories and I tried to capture that with this doodle. As with all my other sketch covers, it started with an ultra rough pencil sketch before I went in with my trusty #4 Windsor Newton Series 7 brush. Drawing monsters and aliens is the easiest thing in the world because you really can’t go wrong with anything you do.
