Old Man Logan Gets Older
These pics were taken throughout the painting process and are a good representation of my typical method: pencils, followed by a sepia gouache underpainting, and finished with gouache and Acryla Gouache.
I should mention, however, that I tried out a new illustration board and it worked out pretty well. I usually use Strathmore 500 Series bristol board, 3-ply, vellum surface, so I was happy to see that the company was reaching out to comic artists with a line of products tailored to our needs. In this case, I used 500 Series Illustration Board for Wet Media, which is essentially a sturdier version of my standard paper. You can see the entire line at their web site. I think I'll stick to the 3-ply for most of my work (I need something that can be lightboxed), but I may use the board for larger paintings.
In other news, I'm going to the opera. Have a good weekend!
