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?

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"! :)

Man, you have patience, bro. I just crap out my roughs..it's chicken scratch. Yours are tight.

Since I print these out as blue lines for inking, having chicken scratch in light blues is not fun! these was the happy-medium I found worked the best for Moi. :)

Back in the ol' days (hee hee), how did you do step 3 without Photoshop or other computer aids? Hand written instructions on the page margins?

--Looking forward to Issue #2 this week!

or with a grey marker over a photocopy, but that did take a bit longer so it wasn't always "deadline friendly" :)

So picky! LOL I was wondering if the colorist just went over your grays and call it a day but I guess not, at least here in your example.

hehehe, you know how I roll!!! :) ... since I'm not rendering alot of "grey-tones" on the line-art itself, I almost feel like I HAVE to add these notes in order to "complete the thought", and that way, if there are any mistakes, I can only blame myself! :)

Do you always do step 3? It seems almost like that would be usually the colorist's call.

I'm a nit-picky bastard, so yeah, I've been doing this step for the last few years! :) ... then again, I make sure that the colorist I'm working with is cool with this kinda' system!

How much extra to each page does it take to do the value guides?

it depends, half hour to an hour? it adds up, but I prefer to take the time and "complete the thought" :)

I think so, and it also takes some pressure off the colorist in some ways... when drawing a comic, I consider myself the "director", so I wanna have input in the lighting as well to help "finish" the idea, since lighting is such an important part of composition! :)
