JokerScarface billboardprocess by Chuckdee JokerScarface billboardprocess by Chuckdee
Some of you had been kind enough to ask me to post more 'process' stuff, so here ya go! :) .....

The first step for me nowadays is to do my 'pencils' digitally... I prefer this because it allows me a lot of flexibility... I can take parts of my doodle and scale em, move em, rotate em, take em out entirely. I could do all this on the paper mind you, BUT erasing and redrawing puts a lot of 'wear & tear' on the paper and it also saves a nice chunk of time for me. THEN, when I am happy with my composition and given myself enough information, I 'colorize' it a very very light blue, and print it out (blue because it's a non-photo color, so it's really easy to take it out in the scan phase).

Second step is the inking... or really more like the 'drawing part' for me... and since I print out my 'blue rough' on bristol, I can ink directly on it.... I personally hate giving myself detailed pencils or layouts because I want to keep the drawing fresh and make those decisions at the 'ink phase'... it keeps it fun and I HATE tracing over my old lines.. seems too damn repetitive!

Three, I rough in my forms and lighting... I clean it up, and I start adding color.

... and Four, I add my lighter values, some subtle glows here and there, textures, text, etc, and voila, it's all done! :)

hope this helps some of you!

Thank you for that step by step.  I want to get into comics but I am still learning how people do their art so well so I can do the same.  Thanks again.
