Interestingly, I’m finding detail work tougher to do on digital versus traditional pencil/ink. It may just be the unfamiliarity with the brushes and finding the right one. Have to say that Procreate is just a highly intuitive app that gives illustration less overhead. As I’m developing the final process I’ll use for Darklord, I realize it will definitely include:
- Pencil/ink in Procreate
- Lay-out, lettering in Photoshop
- Pin ups and cover pencil/charcoal/ink in Procreate
- Pin ups and cover titles and color in Photoshop
Below are a few panels from the first few pages.
