Art Process - Page DesignRead Now
We're returning to one of our favorite things to show, taking a deep dive into the art process. This time we're looking at the page development, from a loose sketch to an inked page.
Take a look at the new page below. This sketch starts off as the initial concept for approval, to make sure the art is following what was written in the script. Also this sketch lays out the panel sizes and give shapes for side characters that will get added later.
Next is the outlining shapes for the pencil version. You can see that trees, background characters, and clothing are more detailed in this version. This is also where you first see hair and facial features, depending on the character.
Look at how the surrounding crowd was added in detail in this version. Also note the requested change in the helicopter blades, which you can also see in this. Part of the process is reviewing at each state, confirming that the look is what would be expected based on the script. Additionally, panels get outlined with level borders.
Finally, we move into the inks. Notice how shadows and black colors are filled in by this version. Smaller details, such as falling leaves or clothing folds also are added in this round. Grey shading in the uniforms and the gusts of wind also help to give a sense of depth.
You may have noticed this page introduces a new character! You will learn who this is all in good time, but as you can tell, she means business.
You should be seeing more of this character and all of the others soon as we lead into the Kickstarter. Thank you to those who signed up for updates, we will be reaching out to you soon to let you know when it launches.
Keep your ears posted here as we will have more updates coming soon!
