The image shows the digital process as I make my comic book illustrations. The pencil drawing was kept very simple, as I have then inked them myself. Pencil drawing, ink and colors, all created with a Wacom Cintiq using Clip Studio and Photoshop.
While trying out my new software Clip Studio Paint EX I did a quick blueline sketch of Supergirl. And because I really like how the dynamics in original sketch art look like I tried to capture some of the dynamics by directly doing the inks over the layouts.
I like some of the results and probably will stick to this approach when working on sequentials. In comics everything is about dynamics… so I think this will work. What do you think? Would you read a comic with this kind of style or do your prefer a more “traditional clean” look?
Here you can see another character from McPeppergames adventure game concept which is supported by the FFF Bayern. I do a lot of the character designs during the day right now. I will only show a small part of the designs here, mainly because I don’t want to get this out too early… just enough to give you the basic idea of the game.
I realized I did not many existing character fan art in the past, like for example on my old DeviantArt page. I will change this here on the new blog. So if you want to see me draw a fan favorite character of yours, just drop me a line and I will see if I can fit it in here between the other stuff.
