Quick screen crap of my process. This is a two page spread at the end of chapter five. Inking and flatting are done. Now I’m adding hard line shadows. After that, I build up the more subtle shading then add some texturing. The text will flow around these illustrations and below the two panels on the right page.
I’m getting more comfortable with this process, mostly from doing it a lot. I’m usually a mess, never doing the same technique twice, but a project like this needs consistency.
