Hello Relics fans! I wanted to post some art for your viewing pleasure. This is the progression of a page in the comic book from original sketch and ink, to clean up and then coloring. I start out with thumb nails of my layout. Once I have the images sketched out on a post-it note or some other scrap, I layout the panels on on Canson Bristol paper comic art boards. I use non-photo blue pencils in varying thicknesses to get a rough sketch of what’s on the page. I usually keep my sketching pretty loose. There are times when I have to re-work an area to get the right pose or facial expression and the blue lines get pretty gnarly. Then I come in and ink it all by hand with my Prismacolor Premier Pens. I’ve been using them for a while and I like the way they work. Once the page has been inked and corrected (on rare occasions I have to use some whiteout to make small edits) then I scan it at the local print shop. Then I have a friend that cleans them up for me in Photoshop and I deliver them to my colorist for some digital painting. The last step is to add text and word balloons and then send the page off to the printer. I can sometimes get a page penciled and inked in an 8 hour day if all goes well.
