Savage Land Rogue WIP: Detail

By jimlee00

After I chunk in the blacks and squint to make sure the shapes actually form different planes and essentially look well balanced and composed aesthetically, I go in with a .5mm mechanical pencil, HB lead, and start capturing and better defining shadows and add detail and rendering. I work left to right sometimes so that I don't smudge any of the final pencils.

Doesn't all that detailing drive you insane sir? :faint: - or is it just a matter of getting in the zone and you dont notice it anymore? ^_^

Is this all on the same piece of paper or do you us a lightbox and its on multiple pieces?
jimlee00's avatar
I hate lightboxing anything...I layout and draw and ink all on the same page unless I am forced not to...
jjakec's avatar
so how do you keep your work so clean, I don't see any signs of previous layout work or anything on the piece.

It's great to see the process and to see your art coming together in stages like this. It's also great to know what you were doing and thinking at each stage. Thanks for sharing!

And working from left to right like that strikes me as unusual. But cool! :)

Rogue has always been my favorite character, and what got me into reading comics. Her time in the Savage Land was certainly one of the most interesting times in her life, nearly getting involved with Magneto.

btw, there is an artist on DA that does a 'savage land' series. He takes favorite character and draws them with similarly deteriorated costumes.
