How I paint comics - The Techno Templar #35

in art •  11 months ago


Welcome to chapter IV of my 100% watercolour, sci-fi, surreal graphic story for a deep insight into its making. In the previous chapter, our protagonnists got digitalised by a sort of huge machine called "Node 32" and then must fight other Techno-Templars that are trying to erase Devlok. While their real bodies are driven towards a termination device, we learn through a incursion of Devlok's memories, that the whole Temple is corrupted by A.I's which are embeding chips in young humans in order to control them. Node 32 ends by saving Devlok and Phtae and throw them into a new mission, make the capsule hatch properly ...






If you don't know, "Devlok, the Techno-Templar" is a dive into a world of artificial intelligences and synthetic humanoids. Where life seem to be extinct and considered a virus, it is actually still fighting to thrive...

So, let's see how I did that page by starting by the very beginning, the story board. The good, old, only readable by me, plan. You can see that I wanted to add the eyes of "Node 32" in the background but somehow I didn't keep that idea. The text aslo changed drasticly.

After having done rough sketches, I first inked the "frieze" that is surrounding the panels. If you read the previous chapters, you can see that the frieze was at first on every pages. I stopped to do it for a question of time, and then did it again for the beginning of this chapter, there are also more later.

Now, finishing the details of the pencils.

I have drawn the onomatopeias in order to see what space they would take and which sound I wanted to give them, their loudness... but erased them to make them separately later.

Colour is already pretty much on its way. I want to be honnest, I wasn't really sure of what I was doing on this page with the lanscapes, somehow it confused me a lot and I end up with that weird storm that, whitout having it planned, I decided to include in the story.



Always painting at least another page at the same time!

Now colouring that frieze, adding more details and re-outlining.



And very last, the onomatopoeias on a separate sheet, that I paint with watercolour too, scan and inlay. Plus of course the text.
