Can you show an example of your drawing process? Like the sketching out a character and then details. I'm always really curious about it because I'm trying to teach myself to draw and I love your style. Also any tips would be greatly appreciated.
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)
(click for big version)
And then, initial editing. More edits were done after this (as you can see on the resective page).
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
