I don't have too much time to do tutorial blogs these days, busy with the day job and more rad art jobs than I can shake a stick at. The most I can offer these days in the ways of a blog entry are snapshots of the process, because those are quick and fun to take. Here's some of what goes on:
Hey look, it's some dude drawing the main image on the poster. Wonder who that could be?
Click on the above image to see some more details of the mockup, drawing and inking process.
Hands are step one in the general tools of the trade and mine at the time were fighting cat scratches, allergic rashes and general dryness mixed with some nice graphite stains. PURTY.
Above you can see the image take shape from the computer sketch, aka mock up, to the pencilled version superimposed on the mockup to see if it fits before I, or that dude in the pic above, inks it.
The above pic gives you a good indication of the size of the original image.
In the pic above more progress is made in the background and in the shading of the main central image.
Lastly, here's some pics of the printed piece. Always my fav pics to take a post. Finito! I should have a small handful of these to sell after the fest passes and will post that when available.
