Description: In summer 2015, Marvel asked Greg Hildebrandt to do a variant cover for an issue of Secret Wars. Now, Spiderwebart Gallery is bringing you in on the action! The highly anticipated cover painting sold before it was finished, but weíve held onto the sketches for fans like you!
When Marvel comics approached Greg to do this cover he didnít know what to expect! He loved the opportunity to paint so many characters on one cover, and he did plenty of sketches to make it work!
Donít know about Secret Wars? Itís no secret that Secret Wars has been a smash hit in the comic book industry! In 2015, the Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Universe are colliding and itís a battle to survive! With old characters coming back, and new story lines being formed there are unexpected twists and turns in every issue. Itís a story unlike anything Marvel has done before!
Sometimes, even the final sketch is not final. While working on the finished poses for the Taskmaster, Greg decided to make some last minute changes to the pose for this character, ultimately adding more life, and more action to the finished piece. This drawing was done on a separate piece of paper so Greg could use a lightbox to see the differences between the old pose and the new one.
