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. :)

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!
