Step Six: Pencils
I generally draw in the characters ļ¬rst, then rough in the backgrounds around them.* However, in the ļ¬rst and second panels I did the opposite, placing the characters in the scene once the backgrounds were more or less determined.
Unlike some artists, I generally donāt shoot for tight pencils, especially in the roughs. I make most of my ļ¬nal decisions in the inking phase instead.
*This really doesnāt show I how I go about drawing characters or architecture. Iāll just have to tackle those in future tutorials.
