Khaoc Versus – page 12

March 20, 2012

Here’s the latest page. I moved at a slow/steady pace on this one, and still not sure where all the time went. I’m still doing half traditional/half digital. I used the patented Fist of the North Star change in scale on the fallen Chrome Dome. I always loved how people and their attributes would change in size throughout that movie, depending on what the creators were trying to emphasize. I also felt bad killing off the snail, so I made sure the poor guy went to heaven. It’s so much harder, emotionally, to kill off animals and insects than humans.

I’ll have it up by the end of today. I’m going to post it late, cause I want to put a lot of time into this one. Probably around midnight. Oh wait, that’s not “late” for my updates.

Surprise! It’s in color!

Figuring out the process took a while, but I think it was worth the wait. Thanks for being patient!

All the pages will be in color from now on. This page took about equal or less time than some of the black and white stuff!

The pages are drawn on bristol, parts are inked, then I do an acrylic wash/texturing, add some markers and colored pencils, and then I take a shitty photo of it. This is the part I’d change if I had more money. I can’t afford to get every page scanned right now. After I get it into Photoshop, I correct the colors, and then I’m off into the digital painting realm – with a lot of Corel Painter,too.

I’d also buy a nice font to save time…

Back to work soon…

Here’s two quick paintings I did while my brother was in town. Half traditional, half digital. ALL COLOR.

I used an acrylic wash, followed by markers and colored pencils, and finished digitally.

New pages soon!

The Aftermath Team has had a reunion in Portland (aka my brother’s visiting), so the page is late.

Still gonna work on it a bit more, but right now we gotta watch some Bridesmaids.
