Gene Colan. And I think Arnold Drake. I'm 100% sure on Colan. About 80-90% sure about Drake.
But Abnett and Lanning get credit because this is "their" version of the team, that spun out of Annihilation.
Edit. And for fun, the creative teams for each of the main Guardians.
Star-Lord created by Steve Englehart and Steve Gan in Marvel Preview 4 (1976)
Gamora created by Jim Starlin in Strange Tales 180 (1975). I have this issue!
Drax created by Mike Friedrich and Jim Starlin in Iron Man 55 (1973)
Rocket created by Bill Mantlo and Kieth Giffen in Marvel Preview 7 (1976)
Groot created by The Man and The King in Tales To Astonish 13 (1960). Although to be fair, what we think of as Groot was mostly added by Abnett and Lanning. Lee and King made a typical comic monster called Monarch from Planet X.
