Pencil preview of page 8. Yes, I know I posted pages 9 and 10 yesterday. I’m working a little backwards, but it’s my ash can and I’ll do whatever I please.
I put this page off because of the obvious difficulty that goes with the establishing shot of Fortuna High 189. Crowd shots are such a pain in the ass.
The pencils here are digital, done so because it’s a lot easier to overlay perspective grids, plunk in 3D artwork (like the car, it’s a Rolls Royce Ghost), or add decals like the graffiti. Overall, it just offers me a lot more options than traditional pencilling.
Oddly, this will get printed on an 11 x 17 board, where I ink traditionally using brush pens and liners. The look of natural media inks help to give Misfortune High it’s messy, sketchy feel. Such a look is harder to mimic digitally. Also, it’s just so much less fun that way. Inks are about getting dirty. DIRRRRRRTY.
Post of that soon.
