Thanks guys.

Sarah: I spent less than 10 mins each on the thumbnails. Afterwards I would do a very loose underlying sketch followed up by a cleaned up trace over drawing -- all in about 3 hours or so. I take several breaks tho throughout the process and of course I would like to get faster. Hope that helps.

Hey Chris - nice stuff man!!

Rena Cheng said...

hey! i was wondering. some of the lines are darker/thicker than others. why are they like that/how do you decide to do that?

C.Deboda said...

Rena: Hay! The varied line weights helps separate the foreground elements from the background. Also, objects that have a darker outline will appear to be coming forward towards the viewer. So, generally speaking, the thicker the outline, the closer that object will appear to the viewer.

Hope that makes sense?
