Awesome cover! The "T" shaped composition with contrast between the angular letters and the curve forms of the figure really drive the upward punch motion. The word "She" is hard to read, but presumably only for those unfamiliar with the character.

The figure is, as always, outstandingly beautiful. You struck a gorgeous balance between lean muscle and vivacious curves. For example, the up thrusting biceps show solid definition but is supple enough to avoid being un-feminine. The legs are similarly shown in great she-hulk build.

The pose is apt, with a clean, clear silhouette that plays very well for her feminine features like waste, hips and buttocks, but especially the legs. Finally, the facial expression is very readable and compelling--it conveys believably the emotion of a person crushing through solid blocks.

Bottom line: Another out-standing She-Hulk Cover.

Excellent art as always, sir!

Pardon me, however, but did you miss a part of "K" that you were also suppose to blacken with inks (the letter's side wall next to "L"), or is it supposed to be as is? :-)

that part is lit up. Notice the shadows of the edges of the "K" falling diagonally on the other edges of that letter.

Can I ask you something, have ever drew a character of your own, original character?

Yes. There is a creator-owned book I did called SAVAGE, published by Image comics that features a dude who gets cursed with the power to become a bigfoot-like creature.

I notice that some of your bw art is pure pencil (with some black inks) and some has grays in waterecolor...just curious why some get the additional step of washes. Don't get me wrong, I love the watercolors, just wondering why you only use it sometimes.

mainly has to do with if I want a solid, graphic black. If it's all pencil, then when I push the levels in photoshop it gets grainy. If I want that solid black, I'll establish more in the original so the blacks will be solid with less level adjustments. Or, it's a time thing. Sometimes if it's just pencil, it's because I had less time.
