Star Wars page process by Chuckdee Star Wars page process by Chuckdee
For those of you who dig seeing the process stuff! :) ... pretty much the same as the previous posts regarding line-art and getting it ready for colors (in this case, that would be Gabe Eltaeb)

Step One: I do my roughs in Photoshop (makes it easy to make changes by the editor, or things I see that would look better tweaked or redrawn), I purposely don't give myself too much information, because I want to have fun making decisions and actually draw when I ink it.

Step Two: I print out my "blue line" on Bristol board, I still do a bit of "penciling" on it, to tighten some things I might want t bit more spelled-out, and then I get my Microns or Copics and I start inking.

Step Three: once I finish the inks, I scan 'em in and I do these "grey-guides" for my colorist to indicate what kinda' lighting I want, cast shadows, glows, etc

Step Four: Voila, the finished colors by Gabe after he adds his own magic to the page! :)

Without interruptions, and the layout figured out. How long is the process from steps 1-2?

Do you pencil and ink all on the same piece of Bristol Board?
Chuckdee Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013  Professional General Artist
yup! altho I don't pencil a whole lot, since I print out my "digital rough" in Bristol, so all I pencil might be some aspects that I wanna have "clearer"! :)
