How I paint comics - The Techno-Templar #36 (+details)

in art •  5 months ago

An insight into the making of the 36th page from my watercolour sci-fi and surreal graphic-novel.


Previously: Devlok landed on Protogea IV and found in the vessel's hold, a module that his fidel nanomorph droid, Phtae, could merge with. Turning it into a demonic, rather fast, motor vehicule. Now he is heading straight to his destination, remembering the last says of Node 32 ...





Devlok, the Techno-Templar is a project I started in the beginning of 2016 and that I finished in October 2017. 54 pages were made in total, with the story being divided between two books of each 54 pages, comprising other short stories and art from myself.

So, how did I do this page? It started with a pseudo-plan, from which that Story-board page is extracted.

The process: Like I explained in previous posts, I water my paper then I attach it with kraft paper on a light wood board. When it is dry, it is well tensed. This is to avoid the paper (Arches 300g.) to warp. It seems I miss pictures of the penciling process, but it is all direct on paper. At this point, I already started the painting.


There was no specific order to do the panels, so the process is difficult to show in this one. And when I look now, I don't see much method in it, seems I more did the city first, probably because it was the funniest panel to do. The only sure thing, is the last step, which consist in re-outlining the closer shapes and touch up with white and other details.




This page and the previous one are finished, the next one is on its way.
Like in other pages, the onomatopeias were painted on a separate sheet, then inlayed in PS.
