Process for INVINCIBLE 100 large cover by RyanOttley Process for INVINCIBLE 100 large cover by RyanOttley
First I did a digital layout, I printed it off in blue line. Did finished pencils over that. I got bored of finishing every figure so I started inking and finished the background characters as I went.

This probably sounds like a really stupid question, but how do you print it out as a blue line? do you change it in photoshop to a non-reproducable blue shade? or does any colour work?

Non-photo/reproducible isn't as elusive as it used to be. ;) It can be printed and scanned just fine, however, you can still get rid of it using the hue/saturation adjuster in photoshop if you like.

Most artist that sketch in color just prefer the visual separation it provides. I'll usually sketch in blue, but as I refine what I'm working on I'll switch to red (or green on occasion). Then when I'm inking, I find it easier to tell the black inked lines from color lines than I would lighter gray lines.

Wow, this is incredible man! Did Robert give you a list of the characters to depict dead, or did you get to have free reign on that?

Free Reign. When you work with someone for 9 years you kind of know exactly what they want and vice versa. So basically, I read his mind. Or did he read mine?

The blood spatter near your signature on Allen's shoulder makes it look like you wrote 'CRyan'. Were you 'crying' after working so hard on this? lol

Does your printer have issues having the heavier comic board running though it? A printer able to do 17x11 pages sound like a good and efficient investment.

Great Pages man, always so packed with the characters we love.

Yeah thick paper doesn't work so well. I use cardstock instead of bristol board.

Card stock isn't to far off. Thanks for the reply man.

This has a lot in common with Adlard's WAlking Dead cover. Love it though.

how detailed do you get with your blue line layout? is it just what you show at the top or closer to the finished pencils?

A poor decision, sir. Can you make another variant cover which ONLY features a giant dead fish face? It is the only way to satisfy everyone.

if it is already done in "blue line", why not just go straight to inking?
Reply
:iconryanottley:
RyanOttley Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012  Professional Artist
It's not done in blue line. Blue line is for finding shapes. Finished pencils is for final work.

ahhh some artists do sketch work on the computer and then tighten the pencils over the printed blue sketch work and then ink over those same pencils, so thats what I was thinking you were doing.

The layout is only the bare-bones sketch you see at the top. It's better to ink when the pencils have taken away all of the remaining guesswork. Harder to rub out ink.

Not only is the outcome absolutely spectacular but it is also really cool and interesting to see your process. Do you use the same method for your pages?

Cool. I like the digital layout bit. Seems to be a combination of the best of both world. The quickness and flexibility of digital for layouts. And then a traditional finish. After all nothing beats drawing on paper IMHO.
