An illustration I’ve recently done for The New Republic. Thanks to AD Erick Fletes.
You seem to enjoy process posts, specially when they involve some explanation about geometrical grids, so here’s a small gif with some of the stages of the process. I decided to use that grid by looking at a previous sketch (not shown here) and inspecting which were the dominant lines. Definitely there was a pyramidal shape that was asking to be used. I did a preliminary sketch in Manga Studio (that’s the red drawing you see in the gif), printed it and made the inks on the light table. Then I did a tone layer on separate sheet of paper using the airbrush, and took everything back to the computer to add colors.
The airbrush part took me half a day and it’s hardly noticeable. Yes I know, I know.
