I’ve been reworking some Kid Universal pages so that the artwork is more in line with the aesthetic I want for Little Dog Comics. The final pages will be done in ink wash with digital colors. Before moving on to the wash stage of the drawing I needed to get a handle on the tonal values. I made a copy of the pages (this is a double page spread) and did a value study in pencil. This process adds a lot of extra work but it helps me be more confident on the final page. Hopefully after a few more pages I won’t need to do this anymore.
