Digital pencils for today's Phantom Sunday strip, with lettering and borders added. Drawn in Manga Studio. Below, the same art has been turned into "bluelines" to be printed on bristol for inking by hand.
When inked, the art is scanned and cleaned up -- the blue pencil under the inks dropped out.
Below, the final page for print and web -- colors added digitally by Tom Smith. Since I now have physical originals for the strips (the previous Sundays by me were all digital), I'll be auctioning off the art on eBay as they are published. The first auction will go up soon.
