Man, I'm compaing the lineart here to the coloured cover that I've got sitting on my drawing board, and it's beautiful. Aside from the magnificent colour work, I am always blown away by the clean inks you produce. The black and whites of Selena in the Cover Run book are simply stunning. Beautiful style to try and emulate.
Hey Adam! I know you use Pitt pen's, but when you do very fine lines to cross hatch the greys such as in the gloves, sword handle and hilt as well as the pouch, do you use a Rapidograph at all? Or that's still Pitt with a smaller tip?
I just recently picked up a 4-pack of the Pitt pens with varied points and have resorted back to Rapidograph pens for insanely fine lines. It's a pain but it's what works. For me anyway.
Um... I didn't realize it was a funny comment. I used the Warp Tool in Photoshop to map the Slayboy art onto the scroll, which is twisted and torques into a shape I didn't feel like drawing or hand-lettering on.
Oh no...I completely understand. It was only funny to me, because I love the warp tool, as well, and would praise it just like you did only I've never imagined saying it as brilliantly as you did. The tool is great, I use it too. It's very handy and saves time. I know you CAN draw it...my god...what CAN'T you draw? You make me realize how far I have to go. But the Warp tool lets you design normally and then get it warped into position...it would be much harder to work composition AND warping at the same time, but why bother...warp and you are done. Excellent work by the way.
