I can only imagine how long it would take me...Btw, I love how you do the shells on the turtles!
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 up 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 !
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.
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!
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.
Imprimo e usando uma mesa de luz faço o lápis e a tinta em uma folha separada.
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.
best villains of all time!!!
