Thanks for sharing the process master! Quick question, how long does it take you on average, to finish a page ( pencils & inks)?
I can only imagine how long it would take me...Btw, I love how you do the shells on the turtles!

It really depends on the page. Ideally I would make a page each 2 or 3 days. But in reality I only have a day, a day and a half tops per page. I think I can say that overall my pages take from 6 to 12 hours to get done, sometimes less, sometimes more.

Thank you!

Wow, that's amazing. Damn these deadlines!!
Incredible that you're able to put so much detail in your panels and still ink it yourself.
Truly incredible. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer. :)

Thank you, I love seeing how a draftsman gets from the sketch to such a good result. Thank you for sharing your process.

thumpnail/layout, structual drawing and pencil, is that all done by hand or is it digital? I'm jst wondering if it's done by hand, what kind of tools you then have been using? Call me stupid, bu me and ma pencil ain't always the best of palls when sketching something upSuch a lovely face MEME tanchanplz But it's cool to see how ya doing it n'all. Your story is truly living up to the spirit of the '84-'92-issues! Fantastic creations you all make !bunneh icon1

Hey! Sorry for the hugely late reply.

Thumbnails, structural drawing and pencil are all done in traditional way, or as you said by hand. Colored pencils and inks. I do prefer traditional methods for drawing too. I basically only use the computer for coloring, quick layouts and small edits/corrections.

Thank you!

Muito show teu trabalho! Inspirador! Se puder me responder algumas dúvidas, agradeço :)
Você escaneia os desenhos no modo preto e branco ou em tons de cinza. Você usa o photoshop para clean up, se sim, quais comandos?
Grande abraço.

Valeu, Jader.

Escaneio tudo colorido. Desta forma perco menos detalhes (coisas que provavelmente só eu noto) e facilita o processo de remover o lápis colorido.
São vários comandos para o clean up. São tantos que criei alguns "actions" no PS pra agilizar e manter padronizado. Mas resumindo são diversos ajustes nos leveis, brilho e contraste e canais de cores.

Desculpe a demora astronômica para responder. Abraço!

Love your work on TMNT: how long does a page take you and how much time do you spend on digital cleanup?
Reply
:iconsantolouco:
Santolouco Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014  Professional
It depends on the page, but it's something from 8 to 12 hours. Ideally I would spend two days on a page.
Digital cleanups are pretty fast, like seconds (I've created a couple of PS actions to spare me the time). Unless I need to edit/correct something, than it can take a bit more time.

Thank you!

Cara, você faz o layout e a perspectiva no computador, depois imprime e passa para o papel usando, por exemplo, uma mesa de luz? :)
Reply
:iconsantolouco:
Santolouco Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Professional
Os thumbs/layouts são feitos a mão e depois escaneados. Aplico os requadros e os pontos de fuga do computador (muito mais como referência, pois é comum precisar mudar alguma coisa na perspectiva durante o processo de desenho).
Imprimo e usando uma mesa de luz faço o lápis e a tinta em uma folha separada.

Valeu, Doug!! :D

GOD look at all those perspective lines! Do you map out where each one needs to be or do you use a generic perspective grid and use the lines relevant to your drawings? And do you use any refs for the characters' anatomy? That's what I struggle with most (well, one of my many struggles XD), trying to get the anatomy to look accurate
Reply
:iconsantolouco:
Santolouco Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Professional
Yeah, is something like that. I've made these different perspective grids which I apply over the sketches to map the panels' environments.
These lines work mostly as reference since every now and then during the drawing process things need to be reorganized.

I'm always trying to improve and references are part of the deal.
Although I'm aware of some spots that I need to work on, I think I can say that human anatomy is pretty much incorporated to my drawing's vocabulary at this point.
When I was creating B&R designs I did study rhinos and boars anatomy to get more accurate look on them, but in the pages I've just followed what I did in the first studies.

Thank you!
