Digitally inking pages! After this step I apply solid colors onto many, many layers. I like looking at the super rough sketches and comparing them to the final lines. Man, I should have made my style nose-less like my sketches.
I want to use Baskerville as the font for all dialogue. Is it too stylish and busy for comic pages? Especially when you’re browsing pages through the digital medium? BUT I LOVE THE IDEA OF IT. A mystery comic + a font with a mystery-related name (thanks for Sir Arthur C. Doyle) = YES, PLEASE. But testing it out…I’m not sure anymore. I’m sad.
Two panels from the very first page. Feeling excited! I gotta work on getting the text’s crisp…iness. It’s crispiness? Crispness? Whatever. I gotta fix the text. And MERLIN’S BEARD. That truck was hard for me. Cars will be my biggest hurdle, I think. Next to cityscapes. And dialogue bubble placement. (It’s SO FRIGGIN’ TOUGH for me.) And everything. Just everything. Okay. Need sleep.
