Hello, great drawings. I was wondering about the technique and the tools you use. Please, let me know.
Thanks a lot.

Tom said...

All of these pieces are outstanding.

I'm sure it has been said many times before but you should really make a book out of them.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful drawings.


Great scene, somehow i'm not creeped out by the look of the spider woman, she's somewhat cute... I have trouble looking at spiders.

Thanks guys.

virginiajoe- You don't bother me at all. Please feel free to leave as many comments as you like.

travis- He is not, as you'll find out in the next post.

siemprevivo- Usually I do a rough drawing with a red pencil, then I go over it with a normal pencil (4b/5b).
After that I erase (partially) the drawing with a kneaded rubber.
I do the shadows and tones with some markers (copic) and I "ink" it with a thin black marker for the outlines and a thick one for the background. You can see a "work in progress" in my Character Design interview.

mt- Thanks. Despite the notorious fame that spiders have the spider woman is actually a good character.

sketch-mark- Thanks you're welcome.

y.- Thanks for the link the picture is very cute.

scarecrow- Scusa, scusa ma e' la storia che lo richiede. Visto che a te piacciono i panda spero ti fara' piacere sapere che stiamo facendo un film che s'intitola "Kung-fu Panda".
