Young talent Brian Churilla axed me to post more process stuff.
Since he's almost the only one looking at this blog......sure, why not?
Today I'm posting layouts from the last Issue of Firebreather.
When i draw a funnybook I usually do the entire issue as thumbnails
first (see yesterdays post). I do these 1.37" x 2.25 "and I can fit
an entire issue on a page of 8.5 x 11 paper.
I then blow up my thumbnails to about 3.25" x 5.25"
and redraw them on tracing paper.
These are what I've posted here.
At this point I am changing and fixing the layouts.
I am also spotting blacks as well.
For most artists the next step would be pencils.
I work much tighter than many artists at the layout stage
because I try to do as little pencilling as possible.
At every juncture I am trying to fix and refine the work
to the best of my abilities. Many times I'll get to the finished page
stage and realize that i need to completely change a panel.
My motto is, whatever works, works.
Tomorrow, finished pages.
As always, thanks for looking.
