I believe that this is my 2nd Mary Marvel commission but it’s certainly my 1st work over Chad and my 15th job for Mr. Rankins. I was asked to make minor adjustments to the sketch and I tweaked a few things of my own along the way. I used a brush, markers and a Pitt brush marker to get the mono-weight, thick contour lines to capture the intended Adam Hughes-style. The client wanted a background added to the image but not the lightning motif often used with Marvel Family commissions. I tacked on an off-center, vertical panel to balance the composition and added a star scene by spattering white paint over black ink. I left a halo around the figure to further simulate the AH! approach. This 11X17 image was completed on 10/2/2006.
