Promo and banner design for The Calling. The first issue is almost wrapped up! 64 pgs. of blood,sweat and tears! Now i just need some colors for this illo. I plan on using this for my con banner for the coming year.
Ver nice, love the line work
Amazing. Can't wait!
It made me stop and take notice! That's a WIN right there. If I was inking it I'd put a thick outline on the closest figure in the foreground, and go slightly thinner which each receding figure. I'd add Kirby energy or Michael Golden smoke plumes [or both!] in the background on either side to frame piece. But that's just me.
no inks straight to colors. although my inker nickelboy [link] is planning on inking this for one of his upcoming artbooks. since the book doesn't have inks, i'm trying to stick with the same motif on the promo illos. i have a few colorist in mind that have handle pencil to colors very well. but i do appreciate the notice and the inking input. may have to drop a illo ur way.
I can't argue that. I love the crispness of a old fashioned inked piece but now when I do pages I digitally ink them and go right to color. Less time consuming and it saves money [from the perspective of paying for both those services]. Even now when I do ink pin-ups I use microns instead of radpidgraphs and brushes.
when i used to ink it was mostly brush, unless i need a crisp line i broke out the microns and radpidgraphs. but that was in the 90's. haven't did mush inking since . i decide i wanted to sharpen up my pencils. so i've been working to get my pencils sharp enough to go straight to colors.
This is really neat and definitely would like to see this coloured as you suggested.
