work in progress
layout - size a4/ 8.5" x 11". this is originally done with a blue nonrepro line, and in this case is converted to grayscale. i like keeping that option in case i feel for going tighter in some areas. the blue line allows for an additional step when you add the gray pencil.
rough pencils - size a3/ 10" x 15". nonrepro marker, some yellow, some blue, then rough pencil on top.
tight pencils - same size as latter. this isnt really tight. its just as tight as i go before i start inking. when i get to areas that need to be tighter ill do those after i ink the inkable areas. this keeps the process more organic and i can allow for the stages to influence each other instead of just having the pencils be a preparatory stage for inking. and its more fun as i get quite restless now and again.
moral, however, is still, as inspector chen says; fancy rendering is no excuse for bad pencils, therefore keep the underdrawing balanced and well constructed.
