panel in progress

making that journey between pencils and inks, one tiny step at a time

just found

Found this picture from the 08 SDCC. I'm standing behind a few of the other CBT creators while we were all doing a signing at the Image booth. It was nice to have a place to duck into when going to my first San Diego Comic Con (or Comic Con International as they call it now-a-days).

An Ink Sketch...

For a semi-auto-bio/semi-fantastical comic series I'm thinking of.

Inks for an earlier pencil, shown below.

My loose pencils for another page of OLD WOUNDS. Sharing this because it's a fun bit of storytelling, and it's been a while since I've really drawn any action. It was great getting to play with how the eye would work with the flow, and how the weight of certain panels would mirror or be inverted.

(Note: Obviously I'm only working the pencils this loosely since I'm inking the pages also... I figure everyone would get that, but I still felt the need to mention it.)

Early rough pencils, to a page I'm currently inking. This project has been fun to work on, due to the good back and forth in my collaboration with the writer. This page started as a splash, and I felt a couple of small insert panels would help show everything the writer wanted in the panel and help lead the eye around a bit (yes, I like lots of panels on a page... I think this makes me a brain-damaged-comic-artist). I whipped this up and sent it to my writer, who liked what I was doing and then suggested some subject and order changes to the smaller panel, which will make the page much stronger in the end... and tell more than I initially was.

For this comic the I'm going back and forth from doing the pencils traditionally and digitally (obviously this page is digital), but all the inking up to this point is being done digitally.
