Sixth Gun Breakdowns

Latest Post The Hound of the Baskervilles by Owen Soule

Quick recap of this week’s work in my Comics Experience class: we were to take our sketches (a.k.a. layouts) from last week and blow them up to full-size 11x17. The instructor does this by taking scans of his medium sized thumbnails, blowing them up via photoshop, printing them out, and then using a light table to pencil them onto bristol. Since I’m working digitally, I just added a layer over my sketches from last week. These full size drawings are called breakdowns and should not contain shading, final rendering, etc. This took a lot of time just because there are so many figures and hands which tend to take me the longest. I ran out of time so my backgrounds and horses suffered, but that gives you something to look forward to in coming weeks? For now, enjoy these Sixth Gun breakdowns…
