Revisiting a piece..

Well... I had to do pristeen16 cover #2 in a hurry last week for Previews... so I'm gonna redraw it tonight. I often redraw things 3 or 4 times.

I start with a thumbnail (about 4 by 5 cm) and scan it.

Blow it up to fit an IDW page, and tinker in Pshop.

Then I print A3 size, mix a martini, and draw under the influence with a 5B pencil.

A great piece of advice I got years ago from an Animation director was to look at your picture as a silhouette. It should hopefully look dynamic and understandable like that.

Well... anyway...martini time (In the interests of work you understand.)
