How I work

Posted by Barth On 5.3.11 23 commentaires

First of all, thanks for the nice comments about our little digital comix.
I'm currently trying to find some time to do the next chapter but it's not that easy.

Anyway despite all the good feedbacks, I also read some wrong facts (and some annoying ones) about how we did it. So I decided to do a "work in progess" post.


I. Storyboard

Balak wrote the story and did the storyboard.
Here is an example of his drawings I received.







II. Pencilling.

That's where I start.
Even a digital comix is made with paper and real pencils !!!!







III. Inking.









I'm very picky with my own inking work. I do take extra care in every single line, and if I'm not happy with it, I just redo it.
Here is an example of a panel I redid several times.
The left one is the good one the right one is the failed one.
Can you spot the differences ?



Here is a close up shot of the good one


IV. Coloring.

I use grey markers. I usually photocopy my drawings just in case I mess up the grey shading.






With this panel I had to separate the background from the characters.









V. Photoshop

I scan my drawing and tweak it with photoshop.


Then I ask my girlfriend who is a webdesign wizard to do the flash interface !
Finally Marc "Tsuka" took care of the website and the promotion of it.
Huge thanks for both of them.
Et voila !
