Mini-Sweep: Three Quick Reviews | Fox Hunting Blog

BFD has a nice review by Rob Clough! You can buy this first chapter here:

BFD Stupid Loop page 2 process:

1 and 2 - Scotty Gillmer’s script. 

3 - Carl Thompson’s pencils, shown darker here for clarity.  Note:  I skipped the thumbnail step for this page, a bad habit that I will never recommend.  In my defense, Scotty’s scripts tend to compose imagery very clearly.  Still no excuse, but Scotty certainly paints a detailed composition with his words.

4 and 5 - For this story we wanted to emulate Kelly’s journal entries by using a technical pencil for the letters.  Since using a tech pencil over my initial pencils wouldn’t work, I separated and bluelined the initial letters in Photoshop.  I then printed the bluelines out, lettered over them with a tech pencil, and scanned them back in to convert them to black and white in Photoshop.

6 - Finished inks, adjusted to black and white in Photoshop.

7 - Finished inks with letters, which were finally pasted back onto the page in Photoshop.
