Getting back into 3D

Getting back into 3D

I recently set up a new render machine and started getting back into 3D rendering in Daz Studio. I’m pretty happy with the setup and how it’s working. Got my library I’ve built up over the years installed and had a few new images rolling out. The IBL lighting has come a long way from where these programs started.

Comic Inking – Rogue & Gambit

Rogue from the X-Men has always been one of my favorite comic book characters, and nobody draws her better than Joe Madureira. I found this online that I believe he sketched last year. It was a hoot to lay digital inks over this. I did this entirely in Procreate, and it didn’t take very long, as there’s no background. It looked like a little snow on the sketch, but I decided to do that on a seperate layer, and it doesn’t need it. Joe Mad is one of my favorite artists, and I’d love to ink him for real one day.

I inked this page from pencils by Joe Mad last week in my quest to get my inking skills back up to a professional level. It’s been a while since I inked anything for a major publisher, and I would like to get some more credits to my name in 2020.

I inked this piece to continue getting my hand back after a break from comics. Like the sample I posted yesterday, this one also is a Batman cover from pencils by David Finch. The scan was found online and was of a good enough resolution that I could see all of the details. This one was also entirely done in Procreate.

I just finished inking this Batman cover over pencils by David Finch as a sample piece. It was done entirely in Procreate on the iPad Pro. I took a few months away from comics recently to get other parts of my life in order, and I need to get my hand back in the game. This cover is incredibly detailed, but it went surprisingly fast. It was from a scan found online, so I didn’t have the full resolution to work from, but it was good enough that it turned out nice and clean. I’d love to ink David’s work for real.
