Songes Tome 2 Page 11 Step by Step

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 11. The storyboards are done on 8.5 x 11" paper with Blue and HB Pencil, Pitt Pens and Copic Markers.
 This page was a lot of fun to design and draw! The interior of Vernere's room and his tools and instruments. And then the look of the "jardin hiver" and the Spider-Creature!

Here's the lineart - 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)!
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. Panel 2 has a ton of layers of depth to show, quite a challenge to figure out where all the lights and darks go!

More to come!
