Card Pack Cover
By: Kirk Manley


Ink and color marker over pencil on Canson Manga Trading card Stock.

Initial pencils done with 0.7 and  0.5 mechanical pencils using HB and H leads. Inking done with Red Sable brush, .33 rapidograph pen and sharpie.

Colors done with Prisimcolor artist markers. 

This illustration of a classic Manga character with sword ready for battle was done for the Canson Trading card pack packaging. The illustration demonstrates the various materials that can be effectively used on Canson's trading cards. This is accomplished by showing the progression of the illustration process. We see the initial pencils, flowing into the inking, finishing with the finished coloring.
