Next time I sit down and draw a comic, I’ll get detailed scans along the way. I got some crappy phone cam pics for an admittedly sloppy page, so until then here’s me copy and pasting that:
Since people have expressed interest and asked questions before, I figured I’d take photos/screenshots of a panel of page 97 as I worked on it. For funsies. Sorry for the phone quality!
First, really quick rough pencils.
Panel’s been quartered off for, I dunno, balance. Made sense at the time. I tend to draw lines connecting characters’ eyes because it really bugs me when eyes don’t meet.
Then, I erase everything til you can barely see the sketches.
Camera wouldn’t focus, the marker was too light.
Anyway, then I go over the pencil details I like with a copic marker ( bg10) and erase the rest. Any pencil lines under the copic marker become permanent, it is also what I draw panel borders with. Stole that idea from Kel McDonald.
Then I draw over that the final pencil details.
Then, inks. (they scanned kinda dark, bleh)
Same stuff with a different panel, except I went straight from rough sketch to marker to details:
There’s more to it than that but if y’all liked this I’ll cover the line editing and tones :U unless that bores ya
