I’ve decided to finish the cover page of my upcoming “Silly Persons” graphic novel today, first day of 2018. This is also my process on making my comics. Firstly, I pencil the page. I intentionally erased the rough sketches behind my drawing and made my pencils look as tight as I could. That drawing is an old guy thumb-sucking another person’s thumb.
And then, I inked over my pencils with technical pens.
After that, I scanned my drawing at 300 dpi and I now have it digitized which I’ve also cleaned up and tweaked the image settings so I can have a sharp and crisp black and white lineart, I’ve also made the title and other credit info of my comic in Photoshop.
I’ve also added flat colors for the cover page.
And here’s the final image of the cover page of Silly Persons. I fixed the old guy’s right shoulder extending down to his arm digitally. He’s thumb-sucking another person’s thumb.
I am going to try my best to draw this the way I drew my previous comic, “Art of Silliness” so this will take some time, so bare with me, guys. It’ll probably get done by February or March of 2018. I hope that when you guys read this, you’ll think that I’ve improved my writing, drawing and story-telling skills on making comics, even if just for a little bit. I also hope that I make you laugh as well. 😀
Thank you for your time!
