It’s been a while since I drew an environmental piece, so I thought I’d tackle one this evening. With projects like these, I always start out with planning the layout via a sketch (using digital pencils in this case). I used my Yiynova MSP19U tablet and Manga Studio Pro for the penciling stage.
Colors and textures were added in Photoshop. I went back in and added some inks (used for details) in Manga Studio 5. You can see the inks on the car dents and the spaceman.
From concept to final took approximately 3 hours.
