Well That Was Fun!

Wow that was fast. It's amazing how the thing transforms once the blacks are put in. I can't believe how you know just where to place the blacks etc without making a mistake - this two-source lighting thing seems to be your forte. Fun to watch. Love to see this in real time (maybe speeded up a tad) on vid, on youtube or whatever

Sean this is amazing! how long did this page take you from start to finish?

Sean Phillips said...

It was about eight hours from blank page to finished inks.

I find it amazing that you go from the bare outline to fully rendered inks like that. I'd have to shade everything in with pencil before I'd take that big a step. Cheers.

...Especially as the roughs look like they're drawn with a felt pen rather than pencil - since they are to be made into blue line anyway, why draw them in ink rather than pencil, then ink straight over the pencil... or does knowing you can't rub it out focus your mind?

The 'pencils' are drawn with a pale blue marker on the actual boards then straight to ink over the top.
I used to use blue pencil for a while so there was no erasing, but I found it too waxy to ink over. The blue marker seemed like a good idea and the thicker line stops me getting too noodlely in the pencils.
