Hey! I know this post is old, but I just wanted to say that I'm a huge fan of DE! I'm really happy I found this, because I've always wondered how you make the pages. I really like that you color the pages by hand instead of using photoshop, as you say it gives the comic a much nicer look!
I read through the whole dang thing and now I'm on the edge of my seat for updates. Thanks
haha! Seriously though, I love the art of it. The sketchiness seems to kind of slowly form together and become more and more solid as the story goes on. Like it's less and less chaotic. Was that intentional? Because it really adds to the tale.
...and I might have to take a stab at your contest, but I'm so BAAAAAD at designing clothes.
I was surprised more about the ballpoint pen (their never waterproof for me and figured you used a g-pen and traditional ink. Also, that you just did charcoal and grey washes, and the color was carefully overlayed digitally. Talk about hearing hoofbeats and thinking zebras.
Cool process Jilly; you've got it down to a science.
Seeing as to how Meredith Gran sells her originals, maybe you could make some money off of Demon Eater by selling a few of your own. Doing a page on a good piece of paper every so often then putting it up for sale.
But now I know how you do it and it is soooo cool! I've not really used charcoal all that much and here lately, i find myself wanting to >> Maybe I'll try some of theese techs. Thanks Jilly! The tutorial is awesome!
