One of these days I'll do a blog post on my production methods from beginning to finished version. For now here's a peek at the pencil roughs for the next Derek the Troll strip. The ruled lines are a guide for lettering, which I'll do before I ink the strip. (I letter directly onto the artwork.)
Update: And now here's the inked version. I'll clean it up a little when I scan it into Photoshop to colour it. At the last minute I decided to have his tongue handing out, after I'd drawn the mouth, so the original bottom lip line needs erasing.
The deadline is Friday and the finished strip will be in Goof! No.4, which goes online on Saturday! I'll show the completed preview in my next post.
