Didn't actually finish even one panel today so as a special treat you get to see a work in progress.
I've been working on my French album today.
As I'm lettering the book as well as drawing it, I first make my panel borders and do the lettering in Illustrator. These are printed out in pale blue onto Bristol board. 'Pencilling' is done very loosely in pale blue marker so I don't get too hung up on details. Then I start inking, putting in the fine lines with a dip pen. Tomorrow I'll finish off with a brush, spotting the blacks.
