TMNT Page 1 Process

So if you're interested I put together a quick little piece showcasing my process for creating Page 1 of TMNT vs Zombies.

After the initial thumbnail stage (which is not shown) I went into Photoshop to do my rough layout. I found it to be really helpful because I could use the line tool to set up my perspective grid, something that is oh so tedious and ever boring done tradtionally.

I then used a light box with my rough layout to complete the finished pencils.

The next step involved scanning my finished pencils into Photoshop at 360 pixels/inch. From there I separated the line art and then began painting on a layer beneath the line art as well as above it. This helps to give a unique painterly colored look to it and a fun hybrid of traditional and digital art.

Finally I used Photoshop's shape tools to create the boxes and lettered them accordingly.

Hope you enjoyed looking at the process :)
