Me and Par2ch started the whole Clay Mann craze on the boards, He has been one of my favorite artists since.

Great sketches from everyone. Here's my fave 5

 

My first sketch cover- the one that started the addiction. Whilce Portacio from Image Comic Expo. Still need to get a Bishop from him.

Rodney Buchemi's take on Storm vs Sentinel. Still waiting to get this from Brazil.

Yes, I have a preference for front/back spreads. Bob Layton's Magneto vs Iron Man.

Jim Lee's Psylocke. Stood line for 4 hours at last year's BigWow but so worth it to me.

I've only been collecting sketch covers for a couple of months so a top 5 equals about half my collection. I have several more covers in the works, though, so hopefully I can make a more meaningful top 5 next time. :grin:

 

For now I'll just show off these:

 

Conny Valentina

Absolutely love the face on this Domino.

EVS (Photo crops out a bit of the top of the cover, sadly, but I have to wait for it to finish at CGC before I can show something better.)

I really like how he depicted the Phoenix perched on her shoulder and her relaxed pose sitting on a bed of fire roses with the fire effect billowing around her.

The rest of my current top 5 would be filled out with Dooney covers from my sig, but picking which ones would be like choosing a favorite child. They're all favorites lol

My first (and so far only) sketch cover, and is currently on it's way through snail mail to me :) Bought it off a fellow board member, literally screaming for it because I didn't want anyone else to get there first xD I love me some well drawn Rogue :D
