I took two panels from the newest page to show you guys my drawing process.It’s not the cleanest thing in the world. And unlike the drawing I drew last night I don’t start out on paper. I work entirely on the computer… which isn’t totally true. I do character concept drawings on paper. So anyway. I start with an EXTREMELY rough sketch in blue to start with. It’s just to get a basic idea of how I want the panels to layout on the page, and where I want characters and other objects. Sometimes between the first and second sketch I’ll change something, but generally not.The second sketch I do in gray of some shade… Here I draw in guide lines that would get lost on the blue layer as well as line out more solid and proportionate anatomy, and add in face, backgrounds, or other details. Sometimes I won’t sketch everything out in gray if I can read the blue lines well enough.I ink out my backgrounds first, and then figures. I may change very minor things between the gray sketch and the ink. But only minor things. I draw out the hair for the first time in the inking stage and I fill in any other details.Then comes screen tone and word bubbles (not shown here) but that’s pretty simple on its own. Screen tone is like coloring… in monochrome… with a bunch of different sized dots. And the word bubbles speak for themselves. No pun intended.
