Invincible 77 cover process by RyanOttley Invincible 77 cover process by RyanOttley
Thought I'd show the show process for this cover.

My thumbnail sketch came first, need to figure out exactly what I want the full drawing to look like, I normally don't ink my thumbnail sketches but I wanted to tighten this one up even more.
I liked my thumbnail sketch enough to blow it up and print it out in blueline on an 11x17 bristol board. That way I didn't need to re-draw it at a large size, I just tightened up my sketch and finished pencils on top.
I asked Tim Townsend, One of my absolute favorite inkers
:icontimtownsend: to ink this one for me. And he did an amazing job. Thanks again Tim!
This issue comes out tomorrow in comicshops everywhere!

Ryan

i think u need to work with an inker who gives a sketchy ink style more than a clean ink.
just like Greg Capullo ink style or Jim Lee's one

Man. With that awesome background, I honestly kinda don't want to see the colored version of this. It's just so solid in black and white.
