Lucky Number Seven by RayArtz Lucky Number Seven by RayArtz
I did this back in early September and only because it was pictured in the November 09 Previews catalog I decided to go ahead and post it here:

This is ‘the’ Cover for Grimm Fairy Tales Vol 7 trade paperback.
I say ‘the’ because I’m not 100% sure this is the cover they’ll use. Usually the gorgeous covers are done by Nei Ruffino :iconbakanekonei: and personally I’d really like to see her take on it. In fact a big thanks goes to her for providing some reference on the new characters.

This is also the test image that got me working with Zenescope and so it has a special spot of happiness in my heart.

Its certainly not the best I can do, I was extremely nervous, excited, anxious the very butterflies you get just before the big game or waiting for the gun to sound during a track meet—just tons of adrenaline was flowing and that actually hurt the image in spots but thankfully the good hides some of the bad. Most important thing—It was a lot a fun to do.

Lines by: Romano Molenaar -- Seriously this cover would rock with just his lines!

Colors by I: Corey Knaebel

Well for this particular image it was drawn by another artist.

the editor wanted it "painted over"

so that means I had to color over the lines.  I can't remember if I duplicated the line work and colored in between layers or not.

but I used Photoshop and a tablet - honestly wish I could provide better info, I know if I had to do it again. I'd likely use another approach.

You essentially have to redraw everything the artist did only in color.
