Anatomy of a page – 01

This is how my pages develop from rough design to color. With this one, I skipped the rough sketch and went straight to pencil. Very little changed on the way here.

This page is from HEROINES #1, introducing Shatter and the fetish ninja vendetta that haunts her. I wanted to capture the feel of wire-work martial arts. How’d I do? 

When I started HEROINES, I wanted it to be a brighter, sunnier comic than my usual fare. But I just can’t resist dropping in tons of moody blacks. 
This is the first in a series of entries that will show my process. Hope you enjoy it.
