How it All Comes Together


This is a "shell" that I have drawn, colored in, and scanned. It's a large .tif file that I use in Photoshop. I may resize or rebalance the color, but what you see in a finished cartoon is a scanned shell with text added.

I came across this strategy by accident because the most difficult part of all of this for me is not the drawing, it's the lettering. By using Photoshop, I can speed up the process, reuse a drawing, and really edit and refine what goes into the panels.

Here are two examples of this used in the same shell.

That's all there is to it.

The "Rockford Files" was a pretty intense show. Lots of punches, lots of dialogue, lots of excitement. Abbott can't handle anything unless it is a blurry mess with no details.
