Hey, art-process fans! Want to know how I made this comic?
I just got word that the article I submitted to Colored Pencil Magazine is now in the June issue, and available in print or as a download. I eagerly downloaded the digital copy and it looks fantastic!
If that’s all you need to hear, and you want to go get your own right now (or order a print copy), here’s the link.
The article walks you through my whole process, from storyboards to layering the coloured pencils to to the final page above. At $2.99 for the digital version, it’s a steal — besides mine, there are some great articles from other coloured pencil artists (whose work I am humbled to be included with), including one from Ester Roi on her use of a heated drawing board of her own invention with coloured pencils that’s got me champing at the bit to try!
The comic itself is one that will probably be on the back burner for a while, since I have some other projects taking precedence, but which I do hope to complete as a children’s book sometime in the next year or two. It’s my first foray into coloured pencils for making comics, and I really like the result.
I hope you enjoy the article — if you do purchase the magazine, please get back to me here in the comments and let me know what you think!
