Work-In-Progress Sketch Cover – Cybrid

click for high res version

I’ve got a stack of 4 or 5 unfinished sketch covers on my desk right now. What I like to do is doodle a bunch of things up and then sit down to ink them all at once.

This latest piece is something a little different in that it features a non-Marvel character and, even more shocking, a character not from the 70s or 80s. Cybrid was a character published by Maximum Press back in the mid/late 1990s and was a creation of Rob Liefeld. He didn’t have many appearances and is a bit obscure, but I’ve always loved the character’s design.

Although I’m mostly happy with how the rough has turned out, I am a bit hesitant to ink it because the paper stock on the Infinite sketch cover I chose to draw it on is incredibly slick and I’m not sure what the best method is going to be. Normally. I’m a brush and ink guy but I may have to resort to Microns and markers for it instead, which bums me out a bit. It’s not that I have anything against Microns (or Pitt pens or any of the other tech-pen markers), it’s that I haven’t used them much on larger pieces and don’t have the technique down to get the types of lines I like.

I’ll post the final piece once I get it done later on this week.

  1. This is totally cool. Very retro. I like it. Can’t wait to see the finished product.
