So…I finally finished inking the background of “Airlock” (unofficially the official name of the comic) and started adding flat colors. The funny thing is, I have a ton of imagery to draw over the background, probably covering it by about 50% or so, but these elements will be scattered randomly, so it was just easier to illustrate the whole background now and then draw the new elements on a layer above.
And before you ask…yes, these images are intended to be upside down. Because…something something something story. You’ll get it when you read it 😉
This comic is intended to be a folded 11″ x 17″ that you read as you unfold it. Nifty. When I get a little further, I should be able to show you how that works…
And I’m either a genius or an idiot, I’m not sure which, but I’m trying something new and inking this piece at 200% size (34″ x 22″). Most comics are created at about 166% finished size and then reduced to smooth out the inked lines. I’m hoping that the extra bit of size will help hide the fact that my current digital inking setup doesn’t allow me to use a ruler, so there’s not a true straight line in the whole thing.
Yep, I’ve decided…I’m an idiot. But this idiot is happy with how this is turning out 🙂
Thanks for reading!
