In the late 19th century, little Rosamond Grey snuck into the woods one night, and was found unconsciousness the next day. For years afterwards she suffers from seizures from an unknown ailment. Dr. Glass is loosing hope for her cure, until a strange foreigner hints of a different cause…
Here I am experimental again:
1. I varied the panels by having either the figure or the background in high contrast and the other in cross-hatch. This worked in the second panel, but I can see that I need work on consistancy.
2. This is the first time trying to "draw long hair as it it were ribbons", and reading works by Shiomi Chika inspired this approach. I have long been unsatisfed with my depictions of long, wavy hair, and this is my attempt to change. I'm not sure how I like the shading in the last panel.
3. Not really experimental, but I wanted to note how please I am at how the Doctor came out in the first panel; not so much in the last panel, but hey, I shall celebrate small victories. I think that was my best depiction of him yet.
Materials: maru-pen nib, Pilot Drafting Ink, Copic markers, Pro-white, Photoshop for clean-up and words.
For scheduling, first of all I have the plot already written out. This way I don't have to worry about "huh, what do I do next?" I found that it's easier (and less stressful) to start the next page the day I turn in the previous one. I'm guessing on average I spend two hours on pencils, four-five on inking, and on hour on scanning and Photoshop. I find if I procrastinate, the quality of the product goes down, and I don't get to experiment.
I hope that was helpful. Do you have specific questions?
I also saw that I failed to include the link to the next page. I edited the description so you can continue to page eight, and beyond.
