Hi again! @rebekahisaacs here for another installment of the April Artist in Residency. This week I’ll share a couple of tips from my art process. First is 3D models. I recently taught myself Sketchup before starting on my upcoming project with @thevaultcomics to make it easier to keep things like this giant portal/lab consistent. There was a big learning curve at first, but once I got used to it, it became pretty addictive. Instead of importing the 3D material into ClipStudio, I move the “camera” into the angle that matches my thumbnail, export a 2D image, and paste that into my page file. Then I set up my perspective rulers around that and trace. Also - I *love* photo reference. It's only a crutch if you use it incorrectly. To keep things from looking stiff and lifeless, I always draw my sketch first, and let that inform the photos I take. That’s all for this week! Don’t forget to check out the IG Story for videos on these topics. Thanks for reading!
Hi again! @rebekahisaacs here for the second installment of the April Artist in Residency. This week I’m sharing the basic steps of my digital art process, using a completed page from my upcoming project with Vault Comics. I use Clip Studio from start to finish. First, I draw a loose sketch called a thumbnail or rough. Second is pencils, although I often go straight to inks. But if any poses or faces are really "off", I'll tighten them up here. Last, inks! Then it's off to another artist for colors. One page from thumbnail to inks takes me from 8-14 hours. Check out today’s Story for more details and to see the layers in action! Next week: more process, including incorporating 3D models.
Hi! @rebekahisaacs here, a comic book artist in Queens, NY! — I'll be in Artist Alley at NYCC 2019, but for April, I’m the #NYCC19 social media Artist in Residence! Every Wednesday, I’ll share aspects of my work and process. This week, check out my workspace! It’s in a NYC apartment, so it’s gotta be small. But I mostly work digitally so I only need my MVPs, a Cintiq 22HD and an Ergotron monitor arm. A few of my collectibles (along with my husband’s, who shares the office space) hang out on the wall. When I ink covers traditionally, I use a Pentel Aquash brush filled with Rapidograph Ultradraw ink. Check out today’s Story for more details. Next week: how I create a comic book page!
