How do you know where to start on a cover?I mean,how do you decide on the end result?I have a hard time either starting a drawing or finishing once I start one.
i really adore your pencils, its so clean and i know its a requirement but its just so good
Many professionals do the roughs in blue pencil, then tighten things up with 'regular' pencil, indicating where the black areas are to be for the person inking their work. (Inking is not just tracing the artwork, either. )
Mr. Dodson will need to confirm, but it looks like all his general planning and extremely loose pencilwork is done in the blue pencil (which doesn't show up in some photocopy, etc. type systems) and once scanned will make it easier on the inker to know which lines to ink and which to not.
What does the Light blue pencil suppose to effect? Does it help in photoshop?
