A preliminary color test for a pinup of Valkyrie, a piece I did for Marvel’s Girl Comics #2. It should be on the stands right now.

The pencil prelim is on the previous page.

I scanned the unfinished pencils into Photoshop, and then used a watercolor original painting as a backdrop. Then I painted a test on top of the layers of drawing and painting. I chose to use a much deeper palette for the final work.
