I have a new update for you. While you are waiting for finishing of our graphic novel I would like to take you behind the scene again. This time I want to show you the process of how I create comic pages:
- Designing the composition of panels and lettering as well as the composition of particular panels.
- Sketching the whole thing digitally.
- Printing it out.
- Putting it on the light table and tracing the sketch.
- Drawing the full lineart with pencil. (I skip inking to leave the pencil look in the drawing)
- Scanning back in computer.
- Adjusting contrast of the page.
- Creating frames of the panels.
- Laying the basic flat colors.
- Shadowing, creating lights and other effects.
- Adjusting colors of the scene.
- Adding lettering.
Now you probably have the idea how complex the whole process of creating a single page is.
I hope, that in the meantime, these looks behind the scene are interesting for you. Next time I would like to show you how I use 3D software to help myself build a belieavable perspective of non-existing objects or architecture in my sketches.
As always… Thank you for your patience! I am working on it…
