Brody's Ghost preview2 by markcrilley Brody's Ghost preview2 by markcrilley
Thought people might enjoy seeing a panel in the making. This will be the opening panel of my next Brody's Ghost sneak preview comic, due online in about a month.

A bit overboard on the detail, perhaps, but I really want people to get a strong visual sense of Brody's world...

If you missed the first sneak peek from Dark Horse, here's a direct link:

p.s. Please ignore the whole 'buy this print' thing: I wasn't focusing and clicked that button by accident. I don't seriously expect anyone to buy this lo-rez half-finished thing as a print!

Amazing!!! I would appreciate if you put a video of how to draw this land scape on YouTube! It can be time lapsed it doesn't matter to me. :) :D :) :D

do you have to redraw the whole picture for the final or do you modify the rough draft?

How do you make the background look so busy? My backgrounds, if they exist, tend to be very small. The only exceptions are those where I go back and map out what the components to each part are and how they work. After that, I can get started and go somewhere with it.

I've seen a few videos you had on the subject, but a video on how you came up with a particular environment wouldn't be remiss.

Damn! I checked out the sneak peak on Brody's Ghost at Myspace...

O__O I didn't know Mark Crilley could draw and paint so damn good. I mean I saw him at youtube of course but I really didn't know he was so pro at this! Well its to be expected if it's published by Dark Horse.

Nicely done, I'm so buying the manga/comic

What kind of paper do you use? Or did you just use a Sepia tone effect to make it brown? Anyway this looks really cool! Can't wait to see it finished!

I rely like it did you us steps for this drawing or did you free hand it? If you used I want to know them when i decide to make a comic my self. I was thinking about doing one because I almost don made up my story and made all but one of my characters. But it just a thought and you did help me with your videos, thanks.

Dear Mark Crilley,
I have seen the first preview of your comic, it was interesting, and very detailed. I really liked the coloring. The title was good too, will this be the final one? I saw you made some other ones on youtube, that's why I ask. :)

I wish you good luck with this comic, I will buy it for sure, when it comes out.

Adrienn

I dunno if all of her body is there, though. She'd be pretzel-ing pretty bad to fit her thighs, knees, and midsection behind that fella.

Err, in front of that fella, I suppose.

Interesting...I knew I'd like it the moment I saw you working on the character sketches. :D

I have to admit, I bough Miki Falls to support you because I love your videos and I want to support people who are trying to change the way America looks at graphic novels. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the storyline and found it very unique, but it's not really my cup of tea, you know?

This is.

I'm REALLY excited to see where you go with it and I really hope I didn't offend you just now. ^^;
