INVINCIBLE 112 cover process by RyanOttley INVINCIBLE 112 cover process by RyanOttley
My process is drawing layouts on a cintiq to get the quick shapes and composition down, then I print it out in a light blue on 11x17 cardstock paper and do traditional pencils and inks.

Awesome to see, Ryan! 

I absolutely love your work, and your work on Invincible. It's kind of funny, I've been doing the opposite process: layouts on paper, scan into the computer, then using my Surface Pro to do finished pencils and inks. I've been drawing traditionally for all my life, so I'm trying my hand at digital work now. I do miss the feel of a pencil on paper, and inking on paper, but it's been fun doing digital the past year or so.

TYour digital lyouts are much looser than I thought they would be when you print them.
Love seeing this stuff!

great breakdown. you capture a lot of motion in the thumbnail stage that carries through to the final inks.

Good idea-- you can do layers on top of layers in your drawing software in order to rearrange and tighten up the sketch...

that's a great way to incorporate the positive aspects of a cintiq and still have tangible pice of original art. to sell or to keep! 

it's a great process.

what printer do you use to print on 11x17 card stock? I've been planning on trying a digital drawing with real copic marker/water colors for coloring, but have been unable to find good resources on what printers are good for this.

I've been wondering the same thing. It seems a lot of people in the industry are doing digital layouts while still finishing with pencil and ink but I'm pretty sure you can't run 11x17 bristol board through any old printer.

Thanks, sir! I've never actually heard of that brand until now. I'll take a look at them.

Typically an Epson wide inkjet printer can provide you with the blue-line print...

interesting. I actually don't want it for blue line print though. I am aiming to print finished inks and then color them with markers so that I can then scan them. I like the freedom of doing my line work digitally, but I am always unsatisfied by digital coloring. I'm assuming that if it can print blue line, it can also black lines just fine as well. I mostly just have no clue how much one that accepts something as thick as say, bristol board, would run.

As little as $250...
You can get an all-in-one that scan up to 11x17 and print that size on Bristol via a manual feed tray. Check them out!
