This comic took me longer than any other one so far, but it is easily the one I am most proud of so far. I had the idea to riff on the opening scene of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, but I took it a step further and decided to take backgrounds from the actual film for the comic. Below are the screencaps I took and what I did to them (and more discussion follows):
Keen eyes and photoshoppers will probably be able to see how this was done (as well as the mistakes), but to put it simply, it was a lot of copy, paste, clone tool, etc. I had a lot of fun doing this part since I haven’t done photo-manipulation in a while now.
Also, look at the shading on Jasper and Bo (and Guster). It’s all gradienty and ish. I felt it was in keeping with the more realistic tone of this comic. Oh and check it, I used a white border this time simply because the black blended in too much to the frames. Exciting, right?
Until next week…
