Quantum Leap – 2

31 Mar

So, I inked the pencil drawing I did yesterday. I can see why most comic artists want to work big. It is hard to put ink on the paper if you’re working small. I made a few mistakes, which I erased with correction fluid.

After the scan, I removed the specks of ink and pencil traces that were left over (I had used kneaded rubber to erase as much as I could see). The scan was done at 1-bit color depth, 600 dpi.

I guess I have to put some color in this drawing, but I won’t do that today.

That is all.

30 Mar

I loved the Sci-fi tv series “Quantum Leap” with Sam and Al. I found a dvd cover via Google Image search and started with the lettering. It is still a bit rough, but because the whole drawing is going to be rough, I guess that is a good thing.

I first penciled the letters, eyeballing from the full display of the poster image file on my computer screen. Then I inked the pencil drawing. I corrected the worst mistakes with some old-fashioned correction fluid (used for typewriters).

I want to color the ink drawing on the computer, probably with some cel shading.

Next I penciled in the actors, Dr. Samuel Beckett (played by Scott Bakula) and Al Calavicci (played by Dean Stockwell) in about an hour.

The size of the drawing is around 18 by 26 cm (width, height), so there’s not much room for details. I guess it means I can only do a rough drawing. If I wanted to add more details, I would need to use a considerably bigger piece of paper.

I will continue working on this tomorrow.

That is all.
