Equipment Lettering and Production by davidarroyo
Equipment Lettering and Production
I came to realize that much has changed when it came to my art supplies that I use to make my comics such as "The Super Cliche Hero Chick." So here goes!

I do all my comics in traditional media. I just like having it all there on a piece of original art, and as such I hand letter.

I prefer hand lettering as it looks to be more a part of the work. And for hand lettering I use. A blue col erase pencil. Erasing picks up some of the ink and I don't want that to happen with the letters so I use blue and then channel it out in Photoshop. The Ames Lettering Guide and Ruler. This little device allows you to rule out super precise lines for lettering I also use the ruler for panel borders (did you know that back in the days before computer lettering that it was the letter's job, not the inker's, to rule the panel borders fun bit of trivia). The final lettering and borders are done with a PITT M or Copic 1.0

I came to realize that much has changed when it came to my art supplies that I use to make my comics such as "The Super Cliche Hero Chick." So here goes!

I do all my comics in traditional media. I just like having it all there on a piece of original art. The next step is Inks.

I used to really really be dedicated to crow Nib and brush. But then I had carpal tunnel surgery and ever since I've been unable to use a crow nib for any length of time.  So while I try to get back into traditional media my solace has been with markers. My main marker is a mini brush pen by Pilot. This pen allows me to use my skills as a nib inker and gives me a very similar line to a crow nib. For smaller and techincal purposes I use Faber Castell's PITT markers. Though I also use Copic multiliners from time to time. Usually I use S and XS sizes and very rarely M. I also use a sable brush for filling large areas and those things that only a brush can do.

Of course where would inking be without some pro white.

I came to realize that much has changed when it came to my art supplies that I use to make my comics such as "The Super Cliche Hero Chick." So here goes!

I do all my comics in traditional media. I just like having it all there on a piece of original art. And the first step is pencils.

I now am back to Graphite After years of using Non Photo Blue. While I still hate erasing. I was finding myself incapable of penciling with the detail I required. So back to Graphite. I typically use 2H lead which keeps things tidy. And I switch between a good old fashioned wood pencil and a leadholder with 2mm lead. 

The Blue and non Photo pencils are still used for early scribblings and Production based stuff like perspective grids and frames.

Equipment for comics. Paper by davidarroyo

 I came to realize that much has changed when it came to my art supplies that I use to make my comics such as "The Super Cliche Hero Chick." So here goes!

I do all my comics in traditional media. I just like having it all there on a piece of original art. So that starts with paper. The paper I use is series 300 Bristol 11"x17" when I do preliminary work I do it on tracing paper or just plain copy paper.

As I see these more and more I was wondering how long it would be until eventually I would be posting a journal like this.

Deviant Art just doesn't seem to be the vibrant community it once was and therefore I have been posting here less and less and using other social media venues more and more. So for the most up to the date info on my Art and Comics I would highly recommend checking out my facebook and Instagram.

Now that said I have no intention of quitting DeviantArt. It's a wonderful page that gives me the best image hosting of any social media. I'm just not gonna be "around here" as frequently and wanted to let you know where I was "gonna be".

Thanks
