First pencil sketch made in A4 size paper for a HERO TOMORROW poster, the film directed by Ted Sikora who is also co-writer of APAMA, the series I'm working in. The first issue will be available online by the end of this month. Click images to enlarge.
Segundo boceto a lápiz.
Second pencil sketch.
Tercer boceto a lápiz.
Third pencil sketch.
Fourth (and definitive) pencil sketch. Ted asked me to change the position of the gunman so that he'd face Apama and to send to him a file in PSD format with the elements of the composition in individual layers so that he could reorganize and resize them.
Finished pencil drawing on A3 size paper. Very few modifications from the final sketch, mainly Robyn's (the female co-protagonist) hairstyle.
Inked illustration. Nib and brush with finishing touches in Photoshop: some of the contour lines of the squid's tentacles were re-traced using the pen tool.
