Comic Process

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?

While working on the game design stuff I’m using my spare time to get more mileage for my character art. My goal is to return to sequential art soon. This image is showing another page from my actual sketchbook featuring my quick version of Supergirl.
