Slide show of story

The sketches are done for the story and have been approved. Next I draw the sketches on the paper I have chosen for the finished art. I draw them out in pencil and clean them up so they are virtually the line to be inked in. I copy the sketches and give the publisher one more look at them for changes. After I ink them in it will be hard to change them. After the go ahead from the art director I ink them in and then erase the pencil line where necessary.   After the inking, I apply the washes and then the art is done. The slideshow shows each spread at the rough sketch stage and then the inked in stage and then the finished art stage. (Click on small box at bottom right corner of video to view full-screen.)
