8th-12th November- Keeping it loose

  • by


I’ve been thinking lately that I need to pull back on the amount of time I’m spending on diary-comics, and  this is the result. A quick initial pass with blue pencil for  layout and general forms, and straight in with the 0.3 copic ink pen onto bleedproof paper. No  messing about thickening up lineweights or thinking about solid blacks. No ruling up of perspective grids, sticking to loose, minimal backgrounds, and working gesturally without much thought. As a result this took me a quarter of the time I would normally have spent. It’s hard to pull the pin so early into the process, but working in this way means I’ll be able to stay on target. Which right now is quite important!
