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!
