Yet Another Process Post

Here's another little animation, this time showing how page 79 was made. As usual, it starts with a quick sketch (or “thumbnail” page) to figure out how the images and words will fit together. Then I make a photo-collage combining snapshots (in this case, of myself and my wife Melissa, who plays the Queen) and simple 3D renderings of various background elements. Next I make a drawing based on the collage, using a Cintiq monitor to draw directly into Adobe Photoshop. Then I add color, tones, and the word balloons and borders (or “gutters”). The whole process takes me about 20 hours!

  1. By the way, when the Inquisitor refers to "Arasons" in the thumbnail version -- that was my early term for "M'Chawis".
