So, the current Theurgy pages I'm working on are a rare sort that have a different process than most so I thought the first Theurgy process you guys see should be a more normal page -- So! Here is the process for page 51 of Theurgy!
Before any of these steps, I have a rough story outline that my co-creator and I wrote together so that I know what the goals story and mood wise are for each scene.
1. I start every page with layouts! In the above image is what my rough layout sketch for the page -- this one is a little more detailed than an average one because I was originally having some problems figuring out the composition of panels on this page. Here's what the text layout and scripting for this page looks like, which I usually do at the same time:
2. Next is 'pencils'! I usually take a photo of my layouts with my phone and upload it, then use that as the base for the page. On top of that, I sketch out the page. My brush of choice for sketching is Kyle T Webster's 'Non Photo Blue Pencil' brush. If you have photoshop CC, this is free in one of Kyle's sets.
3. Typesetting, and then I lower the opacity of the sketch layer and 'ink' the page. For Theurgy pages, I do the lines with Kyle T Webster's 'Mr Natural Brush'.
4. Time for color! The exact process of this step is not always the same, as my co-creator works on the colors as well. She will normally do the flats/first pass and I will finish up/do the final touches. The stages shown here are: flats -> shading -> adjustment layers and overlays.
5. Final step for most pages is I lock the lineart layer and color the lines where I feel it is needed, such as blush marks, sound effects, some background lines, etc.
All Done!I'll have new Theurgy pages to share with you all soon! :)
