Creating A Few Panels

The next three issues of THE FEW are officially underway. Here’s a snapshot of how I create a single panel of art for a page in the comic.

I take the written script, “massage” the text to make it work in a picture format, create a really simple rough of the entire story and send it to the editor for approval. When I receive the go ahead, I refine the art, put it on a light table, do a tight pencil drawing, scan that into the computer an add color with Photoshop.

All I need to do now is repeat this process about three hundred times and the next three comics will be ready to send to the printer.

Behind The Scenes

A look behind the curtain as Todd and I put a comic book together.

Dennis: Hey Todd, how ’bout something like this for the cover on the first comic. Todd: Looks good, let’s do it.

(a couple of days later)

Dennis: Ok Todd, the covers are done. Todd: Cool… I thought we decided to wrap the artwork around and onto the back of the comic? Dennis: AARRGGHHHHH!

(a couple of days later)

Dennis: You’re right. I’ll get that fixed…
