Artist Kevin Wada shares Scarlet Witch design process

Kevin Wada's Scarlet Witch designs

George Marston for Newsarama:

Kevin Wada has become one of Marvel’s go-to artists for redesigning and updating their characters’ looks, and his latest effort turns his fashion-inspired style on Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch, in preparation for her upcoming solo series written by James Robinson.

It’s really fascinating to see behind the curtains for the upcoming Scarlet Witch solo book. Wada briefly describes his process on creating Wanda’s beautiful new look and shares his initial sketches and concepts as well as some versions that didn’t quite make the cut.

While i’d assumed for a while now that he’d be providing either interior art or covers for the series, that’s not the case. That said, the creative team Marvel’s lined up for the book looks more than capable — with David Aja on covers, Vanessa Del Rey on interiors — and, with the artists changing up with every couple issues or so, we’ll certainly be seeing a ton of variety.
