Here's a look at how we made this cover!
Roughs were drawn at 2" x 3" in my sketchbook using Warm Grey Copics then colored in Photoshop CS3.
Drawn in Light Blue and HB lead on 12" x 18" Bristol Board .
Rachel Dosdson inks over my pencils with a Windsor Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable #2 Brush and Higgins Black Magic Ink.
The final line art
The first stage of color is called flats - flatting allows me to choose an area to color at any point throughout the coloring process.
Flats were done by Gilly Renk.
Initial Color Rough In
I colored this on my Cintiq 22 HD using Photoshop CS3 .
