A great find – page 3 (4)

Panacea - A great find page 3

I just finished the flat colours of page 4 and am now working on the colours of page 3 and 4 simultaneously. Here is the center image of page 3… That waterfall… not too happy with that. More to follow in the coming week.

Woohoo, inking of the four pages is done. Now all I have to do is colour the final 2 pages and I’ve got this thing done… I did the largest part of the inking in one day, which almost killed me. But, I do seem to get faster in doing the inks. Let’s see if I can speed up the colouring as well. That way I might even get some pages of the actual comic done some day!

There is actually some text that should go on this page. But that’s so totally lame that I’ve left it off, at least for now. This whole story was a drawing pratice exercise so I never really spend that much time on the “story”. Maybe I will add the text balloons to see how that effects the overall look of the page.

My plans to work on pages 3 and 4 of the great find story got a bit sidetracked when I got an idea for a birtday present. So last week was spend on the above image. Great fun to work on and with all the textures probably also one of the bigest images I ever worked on. The background file is 390 MB at 4800 x 4000 pixels. The total image (with flattened background) is 350 MB. My PC had some trouble with that.

Working late a couple of times in a row certainly doesn’t help in getting this page done. The initial sketch went pretty fast and smooth, but ironing out all the details is proving to be a lot of work. Great fun though, it’s been a while since I’ve done a page with just character shots. Not happy with everything that’s going on, but I like the overall look.

I’m editing the last row of images: I made some mistakes in where the characters are supposed to be compared to each other.
