BPRD: 1948 Page 01 process

Layouts for page 01 of issue 01 of  BPRD 1948
This pencils were done with a blue pencil, and a red one, only for the grid. That made it a lot easier to render, instead of penciling everything with the same color.  Unfortunately I have only a B&W scanned of the page to show you that.
But here in the inks, fortunately, you can see the red and blue pencils behind the ink lines.

And the beautiful colors by Dave Stewart.

Abe Sapien cover #19 process

 I usually draw with blue pencils, and in this case I also used the color red to draw the blood separately, avoiding the lines getting too mixed up, that I would have confused them while inking in the next step.

The inks were done traditionally on paper, but then I add the blood in photoshop

Here is a variation of the same cover but with the character boxes changed

And here is the final cover with colors done by el maestro Dave Stewart.
