Finished Pencils.

Concept Pencils.

I have just finished inking a 7 page comic strip for Mavel Heroes the new monthly comic published by Panini.
As I can't show you the pages just yet, here are a couple of pages of my pencils I did several years ago.
This was for the Disney & Me magazine which included illustrations and a comic strip which this page is from.
We had to do 2 stages of pencils, the concept pencils, and the finished pencils.
First the concept pencils were sent to sent to Disney for approval, when we received the comments back, we would then move on to the finished pencils, which mainly was for putting the characters on model, and any further changes.
Once these were approved it would then be coloured which was all done by hand, as there was not much being coloured by computer then.
Sometimes characters and backgrounds would be airbrushed, which included masking out areas, for the characters.
We mostly used goauche, and acrylic for the colour work.

This sketch here is by the very talented Mr Glenn Fabry, which he did for me at one of the UKCA'S, must have been around 94 I guess, drawn straight with a blue biro!

Spider-Man/From Pencil To Colour


When I worked on this issue of Spec Spider-Man (#166) the pencils were emailed to me as JPG'S, which were drawn by John Royle. I then enlarged the pencils up to A3, turned the pencil line into a non print blue line in photoshop, and then printed out the page onto bristol board.
I will post up a blue line version of one of the pages in my next post.


I then inked directly onto the blue line pages, once this was complete the pages were sent to Panini.
I would say about 50% of my current inking work is now done this way.

Colour & Lettering:

Panini then scanned the pages to the colourist James Offredi, and then onto the final stage the lettering.

Judge Dredd/From Pencil To Colour


Here are the various stages that go into putting a comic strip page together, from pencil to colour.
The first stage-the pencils, which were drawn by Patrick Goddard, at A3 size, he then posted these direct to me.

Inks: (My Part)

In this case I inked directly onto the original pages, when this was done I sent the original pages to 2000ad.

Colour & Lettering:

2000ad then sent my inked pages over to the colourist Chris Blythe, which are scanned in and coloured up, before being passed on to the final stages to be lettered by Annie Parkhouse.
