Embiggening My Art

Postby John T on Wed Jan 14, 2009 4:33 pm

As noted in today's (late) news, I started drawing the comic bigger again after a month of drawing it (badly) smaller. The benefits are substantial - everything is more detailed and has more room to breathe. The more detail I can put down in the "pencils" phase, the easier it is for me to ink, so that's another plus. It's also a LOT easier to draw people different sizes since I have so much extra room on the paper itself. With the small panels, full body shots were a rarity, if I ever even drew them at all.

Anyway, I made this thread to show a couple examples. They're panels from different strips that look somewhat similar. Enjoy this peek behind the curtain.

Wow, i don't ever recall seeing unfinished Trout-art before as long as I've been reading your stuff.

...Oh, and uh, bigger panels are much better... right?

It's always interesting to see under the hood, so to speak. The section at the back of Basil Flint, P.I. is quite interesting on that subject.
