I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.

Oh holy jeez this is amazing.
Rucka, I knew I loved you.
ADVENTURE TIME #26
Sample page process
Script by Ryan North
Illustrated by Jim Rugg
Colors by Chris O’Neill
Letters by Steve Wands
Adventure Time #26 is the first of 4 issues that I illustrate (I was halfway through issue 28 when I wrote this). Here is the process that I used for #26. Each morning, I woke up, made coffee, petted the cats while coffee brewed. I drank a cup of coffee and sketched panels, figures, action, and page layouts directly on a print out of Ryan North’s scripts (which are delightful!). Then I taped a piece of paper on my drawing board (Strathmore Bristol 300 Series, 11 x 14, smooth surface). Ruled out borders based on the layout sketches using a Rapidograph (size: 1.20). Lightly drew the page with a non photo blue pencil (2 mm). I drew the original art at 125% of the print size. Then inked the page using Microns (sizes 01, 03, 05, 08). Finally scanned it, cleaned it up if necessary, and saved it as a 1200 dpi bitmap (uncompressed TIFF).
I love how the two covers for each issue (particularly #2 and #3) compliment each other both in color scheme and layout.
The monthly series from Boom! Studios written by Christopher Sebela with interior art Chris Visions starts next month.
