Another quick sneak peek at a panel from my upcoming secret project, including a look at some of the stages...
First, the inks. No scan of my pencils, I'm afraid. Not that you're missing much. You can barely call what I do 'pencils. They're very quick and loose with the bare minimum of detail. Most of the work is done in the ink stage, where I take the shapes I've sketched out and start to pull them together.
Now, the 'colors'. For this project, I decided to go with a single mid-tone color, like I'd done on F. Paul Wilson's THE KEEP. Partially because I wanted to do everything on this project myself but haven't developed my coloring skills to the point where I felt confident enough to handle interior pages, but mostly because I genuinely like the look of this approach. It suits the emotional tone I'm going for.
And finally, the letters, done in Adobe Illustrator with Comicraft's Richard Starkings font. And a lot of help from the Comicraft incredibly useful tutorial blog.
