Rookie #1 by SquirrelShaver Rookie #1 by SquirrelShaver
Man, I can believe that forgot to post this piece. Cover pencils for "Rookie" #1 by Big Dog Ink & Bluerainbow Online that debuted at New York Comic Con this past October.

The idea here was again to create a 50's style Gil Elvgren image with heavy focus on the central figure and imply a simple background that blends and/or fades away into the surrounding canvas. Being that this image is now several months old to me, looking back I see somethings that I could have done differently to more accurately achieve that effect.

Originally we planned to do an alternate version with the character blowing a bubble gum bubble but that version was never used. The end result of that felt a bit distracting and in my personal opinion took focus away from other parts of the image.

The best part is the softness of her incredible curves. Good gravy, your women are awesome.

Beautiful as usual! I like the floor. The hair and folds are also great! Along with everything else of course.

A simple smile is all that's needed... and a towel.
