So like I said before on one of my previous posts, (dont ask me which one cause I can't remember) this project has been sitting around longer than a biblical man's beard. I decided I was fed up with letting it sit on the shelf. Thanks to @vion4444 who just fell in love with one of the characters, I decided to bring it back to life and make it breathe.
Insanity with a pencil
Two posts ago I showed you how my first page came out in 2007. If I am not suffering from memory loss, collecting reference and laying it out took me most of the time. I think that's how I remember it. Filling out the lines with pencils and darkening those dark spots like a madman took me less time than I expected. I think I finished this page in about 6 to 8 hours (not all in one sitting). Just so you know, there was a first attempt at this page. That original pencil art is with our good buddy Sean Beck, of Invincible Comics, but onward.
Keep It Simple Stupid (K.I.S.S.)
Here is the finished first page. This is after all the tweaks and refinements. That girl you see in the panels is non-other than my little angel, Argus (click here to see who I'm talking about.) I was happy with the simplification of the characters and effects. I'm always amazed at how working digital allows you to do so much more.
Anyway, feel free to let me know what you think about this page below in the comments.
Until next time, sketch me a glass a water, cause I sho is thirsty.
