Back in 2010 I did an extremely informal tutorial on my creative process:
I’ve received a handful of inquiries about my creative process, so Today’s Daily is dedicated to just that. I’ll show you step by step, the completion of an illustration of one my favorite comic characters using a pencil, Prisma markers and an opaque white marker.
STAGE1: THE SKETCH
Every illustration starts out as a rough sketch. I sketch…
until I find something I like.
STAGE2: FINISHED PENCILS
After establishing the idea and layout with a rough sketch I do a tightly rendered drawing. I made the lines light so the pencil lead doesn’t smear while the Prisma markers are applied.
I didn’t post the finished pencils because they didn’t scan well. I ended up changing her pose slightly also
STAGE3: GREY SCALE
At this stage I use warm grey Prisma markers and go to work…
Here, I color right over top of those warm grey markers…
After stages 3 & 4, the pencils from stage 2 are pretty much gone. so I go in and reestablish those lines with my pencil. I also add highlights with an opaque white marker.
Here’s a close up of her face. I like drawing faces…
Hope y’all like. PEACE!
