Brody's Ghost 3 Panel Rough to Final by markcrilley Brody's Ghost 3 Panel Rough to Final by markcrilley
I thought folks would enjoy seeing the transition from rough to final in an average panel from Brody's Ghost book 3. The process of creating comics can be fairly mysterious if you never get to see the "scaffolding" behind the art. I think it's especially interesting to see what changes from the beginning to the end.

The book is now completely finished and is due out on May 1st. Thanks in advance to anyone who orders my books! ~Mark

I think Mark referred to it as "manga", even though he did say that he would go for a more "western" look. Soo.. yeah.

Hey, manga simply translates to "cartoon" anyway, so no big deal, right? =)

I love your work. The sense of space is amazing, as is the detail and perspective.
I was hoping you might help me. I am an aspiring comic book artist. I have been studying and practicing to get good enough to work professionally for almost 2 decades. At this point there isn't much I can't draw (or render in full color).
Until I was sure I had a good working knowledge of the core set of skills to do the job, it seemed like a great idea not to bother anyone (I didn't want to wast peoples time when I couldn't get the job done). I was hoping you might be able to tell me what sort of time schedule is required for the production of a comic book or graphic novel. I know there are different jobs (penciler, inker colorist etc...) and deadlines for each. Would you happen to know how much time is allotted for each job and if more or less time is allowed for people who do multiple jobs? If you aren't sure could you point me in the right direction towards someone who would know?

any help would be wonderful.

Looks great as usual. I'm still going to wait until you have finished the series before starting to read it though, I prefer to read graphic novels in one go if possible. I still haven't read Miki Falls either (thanks to the delayed shipping from the bookstore i ordered them from 4 weeks ago ;_; ).

I've seen you ink scenes like this on youtube, but what do you do for the shading? Do you use a program or do it by hand too?
