Hominids Fan Art Process

Written by Vic on . Posted in Progress Blog

I have some process pics to catch up on! I interrupted my work on page 105 because an opportunity arose to do a Hominids fan piece! I tried a few new things with it, including an entirely new process. I wanted to try my hand at digital painting for this one. I’ve always been intrigued by the flesh eaters in Jordan’s comic. They add a very dark and sinister element to what is otherwise a comic about a clash of two cultures. Painting them gave me an opportunity to try portraying them with some gritty brushes and textures. So here is my progress!

I’m posting this after the page has gone live. That’s okay, because now that I have the Surface Pro, my workflow has gotten much quicker. I might just do this as a behind the scenes thing from now on. We’ll see! If you’re really keen on seeing the progress as I go again, let me know! I’ll be happy to accommodate you 🙂 Without further ado, here is the process for page 100!

Okay, time to get back in the saddle. Sorry for the wait, everyone. As my son once said, “There’s a lot of future happening right now.” In other words, life has been… life. Here is the first pass of pencils for page 98:
