Here's Robert Rivera's summary of the process from start to finish of a Pride High cover!
It all starts with a concept and a preliminary sketch. Tommy had the idea of putting a clock in the background.
The sketch is then traced and brought to finish on bristol board.
The finished pencils are scanned and then darkened in Photoshop. I also used Photoshop to create the clock.
While most colorists use Photoshop, I prefer using Corel Painter. It’s an awesome program for creating a colorful art piece.
Tadaa! The ‘stamp’ of Scotch Bonnet will not be on the final cover. That’s just me playing around in Photoshop :D
