The first thing I do when I get a penciled page is take a few minutes and look at everything on it. Before I put a dot of ink on the page, I have to be sure that I know everything that's happening. What's going on with the figure, the foreground, the middle ground and the background?
What is everything made of? What's flowing across his boots? Is it dust? Light? Smoke? Energy from the ground? How do I ink the busy background and foreground to support the figure, rather than drowning it out?
What line weights do I want to use on Wonder Woman's head piece and the Bat-thingie to catch the viewer's eyes without making these objects obnoxiously bold?
These are just a few of the things that must be considered to make sure everything works together once it's all inked.
By the way, the piece is already done, but I just wanted to spread out the posts over the day.
TO BE CONTINUED IN AN HOUR...
