Vanquish Cover with Steve

Here is Issue 4.4 (or the fourth variant cover for issue 4) of the fictional comic for our FATE Core supers game featuring Team Vanquish as they set about being heroes in a fictional Sydney. I am still working on this set of covers for Issue 4 (gameday 4) which featured the dramatic events of the Gala dinner atop Pyramid Tower.

Seraph had gone to some effort to setup Steve with someone nice, but Steve was on another page - geared up to stream the event to his online fans wearing his denim suit. This was but the start of the drama...


Anyhow, here is one vision of Steve whose Minecraft-like powers make him a valuable team member but socially the relationship has been strained. This was all done in Photoshop on the new Surface Pro 3 built upon the template for the other covers (see other posts). I like watching the timelapse for this sort of thing as it not only shows the way I went about the drawing, but shows where I changed my mind, where I altered things, decided on the wink, changed his hair and so on. I probably would have liked him to be slightly more cartoony, more stylised - but am pretty happy with him. Now to see if he matches his player's vision of him - or the rest of the gang for that matter...
