Songes Tome 2 Page 29 Step by Step

Here's how I made Songes Tome 2 Page 29. 
To ease any problems in the translation, I do storyboards for the writer, Denis-Pierre Filippi to approve before I draw the pages. This is the storyboard for Songes Tome 2 Page 29. The storyboards are done at 3 x 4 " on 8.5 x 11" paper with Blue and HB Pencil, Pitt Pens and Copic Markers.

Here's the lineart - into the Aladdin, 1001 Nights, etc - fun stuff to draw and create.
 Drawn on 13 x 19" 2 ply Bristol Board with Blue and HB Lead and borders ruled with .80 tech pen. So I shoot from these the pencils so they are very tight (for me)! I actually had to draw the FULL BLEED in the  Top LEft on an additional piece of paper.

The lineart is darkened and cleaned in Photoshop and turned into a Bitmap.

The colors were done by Rebecca Rendon and me in Photoshop. The art was colored in Channels - a method I learned from Alex Sinclair.

Pretty layed a warm orange over the entire page and then added and subtracted to that to get that "harem" feel.



  1. Gorgeous colors. Looking forward to getting my copy.

  2. Yes. So glad they published the English version at the original size.
