Keeping It Spontaneous

Character design
Composition sketch
Pencil panel from strip

Above are some of the stages I have been going through. Using a light box to trace off compositions for panels. These composition panels are not meant to be great drawings but a way of working out how to fit elements into a panel. I have found using quite a thick pen (2mm) helps in keeping the ‘bare essentials’ in and the ‘fiddling’ out.The pencil drawing on the right is also done on a light box, which helps keep directness in the drawing. The character design on the left is a pencil drawing with a colour Layer Multiplied over the top in Photoshop.
