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?
