Preditor vs Alien

Today’s sketch is an homage to the cover of Incredible Hulk #340 originally drawn by the great Todd McFarlane.

I feel bad that I couldn’t give this cover my full treatment.  The early Marvel Sketch covers were very glossy. Inks and Copic markers just sat on top of the cover instead of being absorbed into the paper, (like a good bristol board or card stock.) This prevents blending of colors and just makes a mess. of the page.  So I opted for the line art sketch with a toned Alien reflected in the blade.

Despite it being limited, I really like how this came out. I hope you do too!
