Belle vs. Hook Evolution by stratosmacca Belle vs. Hook Evolution by stratosmacca
I haven't done one of these step by step things in a while, so figured I'd do it with this recent Belle vs. Hook piece (rock on, Belle!).

I do 90% of my artwork digitally nowadays, and this piece was no different. All of my roughs and inks are done in Manga Studio, then I take the drawing into Photoshop to add colors. For whatever reason, flatting (stage 3 above) is my least favorite step. I find it tedious. Necessary, but tedious.

I think the different stages are kind of self explanatory, but can go into detail if anyone wants. But it's basically:

1.) Roughs
2.) Inks
3.) Flats
4.) Shading/Effects

I love all the little details in this drawing, like Rumple being a smug douche in the background and esp the pattern on Belle's dress~ Hook, you're gorgeous and Ilu but you kinda deserve it lol.

Just wondering -- why do you prefer manga studio to do your line arts? I do everything in photoshop.

I've found Manga Studio's brushes and pens to be superior to anything I've found in Photoshop. I did try to ink digitally via Photoshop initially but was never comfortable with it. Manga Studio's pen tool responds exactly the way I want it to, and feels like I'm actually using brushes or nibs to ink. Even the mechanical pencil tool I use to do my roughs in MS is fantastic.

I recommend giving the program a shot, especially if you do a lot of digital work. :)

I love Rumple smirking in the background! You know, I've been thinking that Snow and Emma should really run an Inter-Dimentional Self-Defense Class now that they're back in Storybrooke. I think Belle--along with several other characters--could benefit. That way when Hook inevitably tries to use Belle as leverage against his crocodile, she can do as shown above and pwn his swashbuckling arse!
