Digital Drawing Process

All artwork is created digitally,  using a Wacom Cintiq tablet with a  600 dpi Photoshop  file. Most line work is done using a press sensitive hard brush, occasionally for long smooth organic lines we will use a bezier path and stroke it for smooth monoline. We also occasionally use a brush that creates the short multiple strokes that are used to transition from white to black. In general my pencils are fairly rough and I do a lot of refinement in the inking stage. Here, we are posting a few “speed-draw” videos to demonstrate that inking process on a drawing of Mrs. Thorne in chapter 8.
