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.

I've also noticed that over the past year or so he seems to be less concerned about smoothing everything out, even his faces retain some of the pencil grain these days.

he certainly does use black watercolor.

Thanks for the info. I've experimented a bit trying to get rid of the grainy pencil look in photoshop myself and it's definitely tricky. Adi Granov has done some super smooth pencil work, but he uses watercolor as well I think.

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

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? :-)
