Pencils to Inks: Adam Kubert New Avengers 50 Cover

Drawing a cover for a team book is a unique challenge.  In Adam Kubert's variant cover for New Avengers #50, the characters are not all clustered together.  Here's the pencil rough:

Each hero is charging toward the reader, posed in a unique way that describes their character.  Kubert's left out certain details, like Spidey's webbing that he's going to add himself in the inked version:

I like Spider-Woman's pose here, for some reason that really reminds me of her old school roots.  Now let's see the finished product with color and logo:

Notice how the colorist added the sun sparkle around Ms. Marvel's hands where Kubert had indicated.  The shadows and highlights really make this cover pop.  Nuff said.
