A Bit About Process

Posted in feed with tags , , , , , , , , on July 28, 2011 by shawn dubin

thought i’d babble a bit about the process i go through to bring about installments of not green cheese.  i’ve already mentioned the wacom cintiq and its awesome powers, but wanted to talk about the hands on stuff using the first panel of the 25th strip.

here, we have the pencils done on the tablet.

from here, i go on to do rough inks.

after some erasing and cleaning up some lines, we have the final inks.

i then map out the basic color.

after cleaning up the edges, adding shading and final touches we have the final art ready to go.

from here, i finish up the other two panels, add text, and publish.

“NASA, 1962.  The space race is on! There are no cell phones, no personal computers, no liquid crystal displays and cars are a mile long with fins.”

my web comic, not green cheese, launches today as of 5:00pm est.  check it out!  i’ll be posting one comic per week from here on in until i say otherwise or the voidbot stops relaying messages from deep space.

as stated in my previous post, this comic has been made completely in the digital domain.  i draw directly on to the cintiq tablet using the sketchbook pro application, do some finishing in photoshop (sizing, etc) and illustrator(lettering, etc), and gawk over what fun it’s becoming.  as i become more familiar with the software and the cintiq itself, i hope to apply it to other areas of my work.

we’re off to outer space…
