Pencils to inks

A few people mentioned the possibility of seeing some process videos on the page. Well still trying to get something together on that front (battling against my less than tech savvy nature). In the meantime though I can give you a glimpse to my process with an ink / pencil overlay piece. Because I do the book digitally using a tablet, I keep the pencils reasonably loose and fine tune some of the details in the ink stage. In this page we see some of the most horrific images in the series to date: the state of Gracie's room.

Gabe turnarounds

Have been asked of late by a few 3d modellers if they could take a shot a modelling Gabe. Well, it's always flattering to be asked this, so for those who want to give it a crack here are the front and back turnarounds of our masked protaganist :)
