Lucky Penny Pg. 34 colored. brush and ink, photoshop.
Apparently today is National Lucky Penny day? OH HEY THAT IS THE NAME OF THE BOOK I AM WORKING ON! Sometimes I think about how nice it would be if this book was printed in full color. Maybe it will become very popular and warrant a full-color job a la Scott Pilgrim and someone else will color the whole thing for me.
Penny and Walter’s Uncomfortable Dinner. brush and ink.
If you were not aware, Ananth and I are currently posting pages from Lucky Penny over at Johnny Wander! This is a panel from page 60-something, but I was pleased with the inks and am sharing it with you now.
This was the second time I’d ever used SketchUp to do a panel layout. Just a buncha squares to show where furniture sat — but it was a fairly painless process, all things considered. And it saved me an incredible amount of time!
Wow, everything I’ve posted lately has been in greyscale! I promise I’ll have something really cool and full-color next week— it’s just been kinda crazy lately and everything I’ve been doing has been related to work or various projects.
I’m pretty pleased with how the environments are turning out in the book! I actually completely made up Penny and Helen’s old apartment building, which was dumb, I should’ve looked up a photo reference. But noo, I had to go and completely fudge some sorta renovated motel-turned apartment complex. Yeesh.
