This is the cover to Think Tank #13 by Rahsan Ekedal. He shares his process, and reference for colour, in this email to Top Cow.
Hi guys, here are the inks for the #13 cover. My color notes are below and reference is attached:– The hexagons in the background should be glowing lights that look like the scanners in the medical laboratory reference photo 01– The background should be dark, almost black even but with some subtle texture – moody, surreal– The foreground equipment (the screens and the circular object) should look like the stuff in reference photos 01 and 02– The SEAL is wearing the sort of camo BDUs seen in Zero Dark Thirty, with a desert camo pattern on the shoulders, arms, and back, and then a flat tan color on the chest and stomach and on the front of the biceps and back of the triceps. See reference photos 03-05– The SEAL is African-AmericanThanks!
