I’ve had several inquiries about how I make my comics, so here is a time lapse video of the making of “They Told Me It Would Happen” start to finish. (Pardon the little glitch in the beginning.) All of my comics are created using a similar method: under drawing/preliminary sketch, line work, color.
I am by no means an expert (yet), but the under drawing is the most important part of the comic. I take my time in this stage but also work gesturally to capture movement, energy, and expression right from the start.
After the under drawing is complete, I add the line work, where the overall expressiveness of the comic really comes through. The possibilities with line are endless. I enjoy playing with varying styles and discovering what they feel like on my eyeballs. 🙂
Lastly I add color, which is the funnest part of the process. It’s like coloring in a coloring book that I’ve created! Color breathes life into the characters and scene, and I love watching it unfold in front of me.
Thanks for popping by!
