Jim Starlin Star-Lord Painting from Marvel Preview 14

Following his friend Berni Wrightson, Jim Starlin also did a Star-Lord piece:

Jim Starlin Star-Lord cover to Marvel Preview 14 1978

This painting appeared on the cover of Marvel Preview #14, 1978.  Starlin painted in this medium (oil? acrylic?) for many covers, portfolios, and series such as Metamorphosis Odyssey.  It’s interesting that Starlin depicted Peter Quill without the helmet and wielding a sword instead of his blaster. 

Ya gotta love that crazy cosmic afro chick in the foreground!  Nuff said.
