Comic Portrait

It took a long time to complete this, I did a number of attempts to ink the pencils and they were just not good at all, I thought about giving up but then today I went at it and finished the thing in about an hour.

Another aged comic panel

Did another one of these female comic images, I tend to draw men so I need to practice more on girls.

I also discovered I can use GIMP to do my dot tone color effect, so that gets Photoshop out of the process.

That old comic look.

Here's the final image with a little help from Photoshop's color tone separation abilities. I love to have similar function in Krita.

Comic style tests

Just messing around some more with comic art styling, having spent last night looking at old comic pages from the internet I've decided I need to work on faces more. Also clothing, also...well, everything. I'm just gonna spend the weekend doing quick studies based on photos and see how it goes.

Two pages of my fake comic completed.

Here are the two pages displayed side by side.  Happy enough with the result but I have a long way to go, still has an over worked feel, mainly because it was.

My approach to inking

I'm still figuring out how to do this, but it seems I do a first pass ink with a thinner brush, then another pass with the thicker brush to add emphasis or weight, then I do a spotting pass, where I try to add shade and shadow.

Comic Page 2 Pencils

I have a week off work, so I'll probably self isolate because of the Covid 19 virus, there's not much to do anyway because of the general lock-down. Here are the pencils for the next page of my fake comic test.
