Finn Balor and Samoa Joe! Here’s todays morning warm up sketch of Finn Balor and Samoa Joe, now competing in NXT’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic as a Tag Team. I focused on action, dramatic poses and speed as I gave myself a 30 minute time limit to finish up the sketch.
NPW Issue 5 Page 4 Digital Pencils and Inks. Here are pencils and inks for page 4. Here’s where the action starts! Pretty excited to finally get the pages that have the actual match between Grim and Devastator Dragon on the site. Make sure to be here on Monday to see the finished page!
Nightmare Pro Wrestling Issue 5 Cover Inks. Finished inks for the cover of NPW Issue 5. Trying a little experiment with the background lines. I’m making them a different color to bring focus on the characters. Let’s see how that works once I start colors. I inked everything in Adobe Illustrator.
NPW Page 17 Pencils and Inks. Digital Pencils and inks are done for page 17 of issue 4. The page finished up a lot quicker than I thought it would…and I’m glad it did! Still trying to hit my deadline of finishing this issue by April 18th. I inked this page using Manga Studio 5 this time around. It took some getting use to but I managed to get through it. I don’t think I’ll be using it again for inking Nightmare Pro Wrestling though. It doesn’t quite have the look I’m going for, which I definitely get out of inking in Adobe Illustrator. Not to say I won’t use Manga Studio at all. I’ve been testing it out with another comic I’ve been working on and it seems perfect for that one.
Check out the site next week to see the finished Page 17!
NPW Page 15 Inks! Here are the digital inks for Nightmare Pro Wrestling Issue 4, Page 15. I was hoping to post up a side by side comparison of the pencils and inks of the page, like I usually do but I somehow deleted the digital pencil layer without even noticing. Yikes! Glad I don’t really need the pencil layer but it would have been nice to post it.
