Also, I didn't do a very good job pimpin' the fact that the book was available digitally the same day it was released in your LCS. Wasteland #33 is available in digital form at Comixology, and I believe the rest of the arc should be released the same way over the course of the next six months. Check out the book digitally HERE.
I LOVE to see artists' process and sketches, and I'll try to put up this kind of thing as much as possible on my blog. I've often remarked that there's an energy in sketches and comps that is special, and it seems like the best artists are the ones who can capture that energy in their finished work. There is a balance and mindset to making the finished product look effortless, and this has been in the forefront of my mind as I've been drawing these past months.
Here are my roughs for the first few pages of Wasteland #33. I try and stay pretty loose, mostly interested with spatial relationships and value patterns. I really put a lot of emphasis on storytelling and design, and it's here that I make sure that everything has good rhythm and read. Click 'em to get a closer look.
After some mulling over and a bit of collaboration with Antony, I make notes on the comps and adjust what can be improved upon. Most pages have at least one observation written down, whether it's a revision or just a note to keep in mind. Here are the finished pages, ink to tone.
Thanks for checking out the work and supporting the book! More soon...
