Q. Do you do your sketches on paper first, then scan them?
(Last updated March 16, 2016)
I didn't used to but am now experimenting with doing early character sketches and scene blocking on paper. If I really like what I do, then I'll scan and import into Photoshop. I'm also starting to experiment with scanning drawings I do with my Pentel Pocket Pen Brush (so far I haven't yet found a Photoshop brush that can express the same way).
If you haven't already guessed, I enjoy experimenting with new techniques and illustration styles. :-)
For my illustrations in SEA MONKEY AND BOB, written by Aaron Reynolds and coming out from Simon & Schuster in April 2017, I used my Pentel Pocket Brush for some of the line work, then adding color and texture digitally in Photoshop.
