Cover, Start to Finish

Here's Robert Rivera's summary of the process from start to finish of a Pride High cover!

It all starts with a concept and a preliminary sketch. Tommy had the idea of putting a clock in the background.


The sketch is then traced and brought to finish on bristol board.


The finished pencils are scanned and then darkened in Photoshop. I also used Photoshop to create the clock.


While most colorists use Photoshop, I prefer using Corel Painter. It’s an awesome program for creating a colorful art piece.


Tadaa! The ‘stamp’ of Scotch Bonnet will not be on the final cover. That’s just me playing around in Photoshop :D
