4 pages I made last year for Oscar Martín’s comic compilation SOLO, HISTORIAS CANIBALES 2. I’m so happy he asked me to join the project. I used to read his comic SOLO in the bookshops, hiding from the owner, because i was 9 and well… its was kind of adult. Not much, just sex, violence and lots of blood.
It really influenced me in wanting to do comics when I grew up. So i was giddy as a schoolgirl with the proposition!!! YAAAAAY!!!
I’ve never posted a work on progress mini tutorial in my tumblr… Here is one! In this case, the whole process happened in photoshop. The pin up is a promo illustration I made last year for my collaboration in the comic compilation SOLO HISTORIAS CANIBALES 2 of Oscar Martín, published in Ominiki editions.
After being happy with the sketch and finally inking, I lower the opacity of the ink layer (in multiply) and use it as a reference for the base color. The base color is the silhouette of the character in the skin color, with clipping masks with the details. The shadow is a clipping mask on the whole character, in multiply and low opacity, in the color of the water. Add some details and its doned!
So Im doing some sketches for a fictional princess movie that will never happen. Princess and the pea. A cheesy musical about a princess and her mother in law, with some untrue feminism speeches, a very lame prince, and a comical secondary magical character in the shape of a vegetable that will help our heroine to find her true self and the value of independence and friendship.
