How'd I do That? Pt.2
Well, of course, I forgot to scan the rough pencil. Luckily, for the purpose of this exercise, when I was half-way through inking the rough I realized the character doing the speaking wasn't working and that I needed to start over. If I don't like a drawing, or feel some element isn't working, I'll usually correct it before I start inking. In this case I must have been distracted while inking and by the time I realized the drawing wasn't happening there wasn't much I could do except cut my losses and redraw it. Since I do my drawings on relatively light paper-24lb laser jet-I can easily trace the layout of an inked drawing without a light box which really speeds up the process in a case like this.
