Sketches and Thoughts


       

A snapshot into part of my process for producing the comic book. The comic itself is only a third of what I intend to actually produce. It’s slightly staged like the Star Wars time line, you get the middle part, then the first part will be produced, then the final. Rather enjoyable as the page at the end of the finished piece is a little bit of a cliff hanger.

These few sections show the exploration of a variety of mediums. My work is relatively small scale (these pages are from an A5 sketch/notepad). Although bic/biro pens are fantastic due to their ability to show tonal variation and allow for construction lines, though the preffered medium is usually fine liner pens. Easy to use and a variety of nibs, the pens used here didn’t survive that long to really explore their full potential. Watercolour is a relatively new medium to myself, yet the effects they give work fantastically. Relatively scratchy pieces get form from the loose colours applied over the top of the line work.

However, the favourite pieces in this small notebook are the coloured pencil portraits. Rarely has colour been a feature in my work before (at least, the traditional pieces). The comic allowed for venturing into something that I was quite apprehensive about.  Although still wary of such acidic colours, they will become something to work with more readily.
