Process... Part Deux

Process of an Illustration

I always enjoy a look behind the curtain, to see what goes into an artist illustration.
I also enjoy sharing my process. Hope you enjoy. 

First step is a rough sketch.

Next I scan it in and using photoshop begin to draw over the sketch, tightening it up and preparing the final composition. 

Continue refining the final illustration.

When I'm happy with the line art, I begin to lay in flat colors

After the flat color is on, I add highlights and shadows...

Lastly I add the design aspects to mimic a comic book cover. Masthead, (Faux) Publisher Logo,
and cover blurb...
