I have had a crazy and stressful past week, and wasn’t able to finish Page 6. Instead, I am posting an overview of my comic process, using the 2nd panel of Page 2 as an example. This is Part 2 of my drawing process.
Next I do the inking layers for my comic. I start with a layer that is solid black, then I erase into black to create the woodcut-like outlines (Figure 5). I do the character and setting woodcut outlines on separate Photoshop layers. After that I block in the basic colors for the setting. In (Figure 6) you can see the setting has been blocked in, and that I added the lines for the portal. Next I color in the characters (Figure 7). I finish it all up by polishing the details. I added ground shadows, reflected light to the cave walls, and the shadow in the portal (Figure 8).
