anyway here's some of the early steps that took place to create the RandomVeus
the A4 size-paper RAWSCAN. As you can see i left space both on the top and bottom of the actual piece. For many of those who've asked if I draw the characters on Seperate pieces of paper and put it together in Photoshop, the answer is No. They're all drawn on the single sheet.
the Colour Holds, so to speak. These are a set colour i use that're on a layer setting of linear burn above the colour layers.
Outlines and Extras. this is a slightly tedious but important part to how i go about. I outline around characters and add blacklines on specific areas such as mouths and eyes.
Colour flats and Extras. the most boring and time-eating thing to do. But i guess with good base colours, the end result willonly be that much solid looking.
and yeh.. that's it for the early stages.. i won't go and show the highlighting and the backgrounds etc.. I've already done this whole process-showing thing w/ one of the Sinbad pages a month or two back. but yeh.. figured i'd show this.
