Just like last month, here is a PDF copy of the Previews August Preorder Form (Forms Due June 18), pre-filled with Carol Danvers goodness: Captain Marvel #2, Captain Marvel #3 and Avenging Spider-Man #10.
It is editable before you print it out so you can add other products from the June 2012 Previews as you like, even in Acrobat Reader.
Awhile ago, I did a speed paint of Carol Danvers in her new Captain Marvel costume. The piece earned such a positive response that I figured I ought to do it again - but with some real time and effort. Here’s the result.
This was also a lesson reinforced. Back your stuff up! A computer failure could have caused me to lose weeks of work, but fortunately an automatic back-up averted a major disaster. In the end, I only had to redo her hair. I’m sure it was better the second time around anyway. I had good practice!
It’s been a REALLY long time since I’ve done any digital painting in this level of detail. I have to say… it feels pretty good.
Marvel is starting a new Captain Marvel book, but instead of casting some guy from another planet who looks exactly like a human, they’re giving Carol “Ms. Marvel” Danvers a promotion. That’s a good move. Kelly Sue DeConnick is writing the thing, and that’s also a good move. I’m not lettering the book or anything, but I think the concept sounds fun and I dig the new costume.
