Hey all-Joel Gomez here with a sampling of my latest efforts-Texas Chainsaw Massacre page 11 with the story "About a Boy," the origin of Leatherface. This page focuses on the character Luda May as she is paid a visit by Thomas Hewitt's (Leatherface) concerned school teacher.
I chose to show this page for its dramatic lighting, and how early in the process I decided on it. I was inspired by Marcelo Frusin, Eduardo Risso, black & white photography...and of course the remake by Marcus Nispel. This story has also given me several opportunites to really amp up the moodiness and contrast required for such a tale.
Not much changed from the layout to finish...but you can see I made sure to work out all the strong lighting with sharpies and white out pens till I had it just like I wanted. Then I blew up the layout at 133% and transferred to artboard. All rendering and details were added later.
Four more pages to go...
